POST # 398: A Milestone is Reached!




I started this blog - Imagine What I'm Leaving Out - on February 8, 2007, not quite a year ago. Earlier today I noticed that it had reached 50,000 hits. I am not so naive as to think that every one of those hits stayed long enough to read anything, in fact I know they didn't. I also know that due to my failure to keep a blocking cookie in effect all the time, some of those hits were mine or mr. kenju's.

But - I am pleased as punch to have 50K and for whatever part you played in that - I thank you!

From time to time, I check the stats on my old blog - Just Ask Judy - and I am surprised to note that it is chugging right along, even without a new post since 2-9-07. As of 3:05 pm today, it had 110, 264 hits. Thanks to search engines for that. It seems that because of some posts I made with photos from emails I received, both blogs just keep garnering hits. I guess, like Martha says, that's a good thing.

My neighborhood women had our monthly get-together tonight, and we learned how to play Bunco. It was fun; we didn't play for money, though I understand many people do. Everyone brought either an appetizer or a dessert and the hostess provided beverages. There were four tables set up and since most of us had not ever played, we had to have a practice round for show and tell. At the end of the evening, we tallied scores and I had four Buncos (three of a kind or points totalling 21 in a round). The prize for that (and I'm not sure prize is the right word) is that I have to drape black fuzzy dice on a rope over my rear view mirror and keep them there for 30 days! This, for a woman who eschews bumper stickers or window decals of any kind. Oh the shame! I think had I known that in advance, I would have *miscounted* the number.....LOL

WooHoo! 50K!

Ya know, until a couple years ago I had never even heard of Bunco, but I still don't really know what it is, other than something a bunch of my friends used to do while they got sloshed ;)

Here via Michele's this time!

Congrats on all your hits Judy. You're a popular gal that's for sure. And commiserations on your fuzzy dice. Nasty:)

That's just too funny - at least your friends will be able to pick your car out easily! Now if this were the 60's you would be so cool with those dice.
