Thanks dear followers!

Thank you,  Thank you, Thank you Dear Followers!

Do you ever set silly goals for yourself?

Like:
Can I vacuum this house in less than 12 minutes? 
Can I make it until noon without an M&M? 
Can I run one more errand before I get in the car pool line?

When this little blog started gaining in readership I set a little goal for myself.  Could I get as many followers as the almighty - my humor idol - Jan Tink? 

Oh, I know I'll never have as many readers, she has a bazillion people with email subscriptions but her "follower" list looked achievable and TA DAH!  Today, I got the 193rd person brave enough to publicly say that they read this stuff - which for TODAY - ties me with the FAMOUS and so wonderful Jan Tink.

I'll be grinning all day long!

Thanks for coming by ladies and thanks for "following" - you make me smile!
And it is 11:03 am and I haven't had an M&M yet...

Congratulation for reaching your goal.

If I were not a follower already, I would have helped you to beat the record. *wink*

I love to look at your site. You are very talented. I check it everyday as I can't wait to see what new punch item you have created. Keep up the great work.

Hi Ellen,

Really pleased for you...even though I don't always leave you a comment I am a faithful follower...I love stopping by each day to see what gem you have dreamed up overnight...love the new blog layout, although I do find the yellow background a bit hard on my eyes and it also dulls some of your pictures...but that's probably just me!
