Sometime today or tomorrow, this blog will have received its 10,000th visitor since Site Meter was installed.

I'd like to thank you, my friends, old and new, for stopping by.

And watch out for them thar pigs!

Congratulations...you and nanc have a great site going.
Any door prizes for the 10,000th visitor?

nanc said...

nanc said...

a.c.!

nanc said...

47 to go after this!

i want the prize!

Farmer John said...

46...

Different Visitors? Do I count as one each time I visit?

If so, I make 4-5 hits visitor hits every day... that cuts your actual number down to 2,000. Sorry warren.

The Merry Widow said...

I hit more often than you, FJ! What's the prize? Your name written in gold letters on the sidebar?

tmw

nanc said...

shame on you two!

sounds like me hitting beamish' site - i tee off the bloglinks from there eighteen or nine times a day depending on if i'm up to it...if i get a cart it goes much quicker.

I agree, it is a great site. Warren, thank you for the kind words when you visited my blog. Russet Shadows, whom I've known for 10 years convinced me that I should blog. You have him to thank for the random jumbled thoughts :-)

Russet Shadows said...

Here I am, signing in and admitting my guilt. And to think some of you haven't been to that blog yet! Shame on you. :p

If I took what was behind door #3, then I wouldn't get that box that Monty Hall has in his hand. What's an ADD-affected game show contestant to do?

10,000 visitors is nice. Very nice. Congrats, guys!

The Merry Widow said...

I want the gold letters, thanks!

Always On Watch said...

Warren & Nanc,
Congratulations! And kudos to both of you.

Brooke said...

Here's another hit!

Just doin' my part. ;)

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

#9978 here

nanc said...

you girls are so schweeeeeeeeeeet - all y'all, but warren was here and started this blog by the sweat of his brow and i just came along and he felt sorry for me and as his begging became incessant...well, you know the rest of the story - he's gone into seclusion - i think with beakerambo. woop-woop-blather-nanc-yipe-yipe-atchoo!

bless you, warren.

nanc said...

beamish snuck in betwixt brooke and me! i didn't mean to call him a girl - at least not to his face...

9780

eyesallaround said...

Congrats!!! It's the troll vacuum that brings us back :>) LOL!

nanc said...

it sucks, huh eyes?

Nanc said:
"but warren was here and started this blog by the sweat of his brow"


Well nanc, you know what they say; work your fingers to the bone and what do you get... bony fingers!

Warren said...

AC, door prize?

The winner gets the old storm door that I replaced last year, all they have to do is pay shipping and handling. :^)

Nanc, I'm afraid that you have to actually close the window and open a new window before it counts as a visit.

FJ, That's OK, I'm just using freebie software. Some of the premium software, (javascripts), will divide it any way you want. I'm just glad you guys come and visit.

The Merry Widow said:

Don't mess with me, skillet! I can have your trolls scalp! ;^)

kuhnkat said...

And the hits just keep on comin'!!!

Y'all should copy Mr. BTIP and have REAL hits here too!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

beakerkin said...

Nanc

I want you to visit Freedom Now's site and take a look. There is a good reason decent people want zero to do with Greg. He is an unstable ignoramus.

Rather then respond to the same charges Gert leveled at Freedom Now
he goes into Psycho mode. This is why I took the unprecedented step of telling him to get lost. I can foward you the emails where he never got the hint.

He is too unstable and dumb to waste any time on.

10,000 that is a good number.

Warren said...

Thank you Indie67,

I meant what I said. I think that both you and Russet Shadows write great prose.

RS said:

And where the hell is Break and I know Elijah has been lurking around today. And anybody I missed.

Thank you all. You all bring something special to the table and I consider you my friends.

Warren said...

There's Beak!

And Kuhnkat, I realized I missed you just when I hit the publish button.

Five to go!

Elmer's Brother said...

thanks warren I love coming here...if it wasn't for nanc...well that goes without saying

Elmer's Brother said...

I could use the old storm door.

Elmer's Brother said...

I'm back did I win the door?

Elmer's Brother said...

ok how about now? I closed and opened the window

nanc said...

suck eggs elbro!

Elmer's Brother said...

but nanc I could really use that door.

Elmer's Brother said...

I'll repeat that you have a nice sense of humor and a sweet disposition.

nanc said...

if you only knew the damage you have done!

nanc said...

my husband just did a demolition a couple of weeks ago - i've got doors coming out of my ears - several windows, a washer, hotwater heater and various sundry items - you'll not take this title from me!

Warren said...

LOL!

Nanc was 10,000!

She gets to keep the doors as as an extra added bonus, the assorted house fixtures.

nanc said...

wow! that's mom spelled upside down!

i made landmark numbers at beamish', beak's and now here! i'm goin' to vegas baby!

somebody stop me - no really...

nanc said...

please make sure to tell everybody i DON'T know how to use the sitemeter or anything else of importance. i took the short bus here.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Wow.

I told you that International Nanc Appreciation Day wouldn't happen in time, but in place.

Elmer's Brother said...

The fix was on huh! Well you can keep your door and your washer and whatever else you got. I think I'll call my barister.

Elmer's Brother said...

that's a lawyer nanc...just in case you're still on the short bus

Warren said...

OK everyone, listen up and listen good!

Nanc, DON'T know how to use the sitemeter or anything else of importance. She took the short bus here.

:^)

Good night Nanc.

Elmer's Brother said...

sure you don't...that's why you won at other sites too...no wonder you got a washer and a hot water heater..were those the prizes at beaks or wherever you cheated?

Elmer's Brother said...

I thought employees and sponsors of long range were not eligible! Dayam I am pissed!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

the fine print says "with proof of purchase"

Elmer's Brother said...

Mr. BTIP, it's always the fine print isn't it.

nanc said...

are you two saying warren can be bought? shame-shame-shame!

i was just out, minding my own business - hitting the blog links and BOOM!

good morning everyone!

The Merry Widow said...

Warren- congrats, I was at my Weds. night small group, studying Acts 3 while y'all were having fun over here! Geez! To bad this didn't happen about 3 yrs. ago, I had hair down to my fanny and you could have had a really nice scalp to hang! ;p No gold letters for the poor ole widder woman. sniff, sniff
Nanc- You are a shameless hussy! I need a new bathroom doior, how much is shipping and handling? No dryer? Geez, I'm going to need one of those soon too!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw
P.S. Looks like Church on the Beach or Church on the Island are going to be the 2 finalists as a name! Wear your sandels, kick 'em off and wiggle your toes in the sand! neener-neener

nanc said...

didja get tired of the long hair? i did the other day and cut over six inches off - just put two pony tails to each side and lopped it off at the tie - i feel so lightheaded now...

nanc said...

p.s. - it's still down to my shoulders.

The Merry Widow said...

Nanc- Yes I did, it was a pain. Mine is still shoulder length, in this heat and humidity I have to be able to pull it up. Damp strands on my face make me cranky! I also look terrible in short, short hair! But I was able to give Locks of Love over 14 inches of usable hair, that made my day! I do have bangs now, for the first time in 30 yrs. My hair is baby fine and a pain to fight with!

tmw

nanc said...

personally, i love bald and would shave my head if my husband would allow it! wait a minute - he's not the boss of my hair!

Farmer John said...

Now that the contest is over, I guess I can get back to my five hits a day. Talk about your getting light headed! It must be some kind of contact high.

Elmer's Brother said...

it's not over till my lawyer says it's over

nanc said...

sore loser.

nanc said...

farmer:

<*)))><

Farmer John said...

I thought Leviticus didn't apply anymore. That is one stoned Christian! O0o*-)

well, i've never seen a mule with such large feet!

Farmer John said...

Bovine fertilizer,,

...In keeping with this week's Io motif.

nanc said...

,,?

The Merry Widow said...

Why is it that when FJ shows up things become criptic and esoteric? And if Nanc's involved...there is no translation possible?

tmw

Farmer John said...

Double trubble.

Farmer John said...

Watch your step tmw! Your frying pans will do you no good here.

nanc said...

shhhhhh, tmw - you got here in the middle of farmer's succinct lessons!

The Merry Widow said...

FJ- Not with all the cowpatties around!
Nanc- Is he succinct yet? I'm not holding my breath!

tmw

nanc said...

you done stepped in it little missy and now you get to substitute teach!

nanc said...

p.s. and why shouldn't you? he has me re-reading and analyzing prometheus bound for pete's sake!

i've always wondered about that guy pete and why should we do anything for him?

The Merry Widow said...

Pete as in St. Peter.
I already homeschool, i'm not taking on a cryptic like FJ, I love him, but he does get convoluted at times. Especially if he's been bitten by the muse!

tmw
I really dislike stepping in cowpatties, especially fresh ones! They're hot!

JINGOIST said...

Congrats on the big number and your well deserved popularity nanc!

Morgan

nanc said...

morgan!

i ride on warren's tailfeathers - he is the genius behind longrange, not me - everybody but plucky loves warren - dang, i need to take some more crotchety lessons...all these niceties are going to kill me...

HEY! IS THAT THE PLAN?

beakerkin said...

Has anyone seen Felis? I am somwhat concerned.

nanc said...

no, but i've imagined i've seen him.

Elmer's Brother said...

my lawyer said to send me the door now (YOU PAY FOR S & H) and we'll forget the whole thing. Otherwise..prepare for the legal battle of your life!

The Merry Widow said...

My, my, we seem to have a disgruntled poster! How do we gruntle him again? Take a drive through the Ozarks, honest, they're beautiful. Especially this time of year! That'll gruntle you real good!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw

Farmer John said...

Groan!

There. Now you've got grunting, groaning and ,,,,,,. This field has got WAY too much fertilizer on it. I wouldn't go swimming in the old pond after it rains. You'll need to throw a bale of oats in it to prevent an algae bloom!

nanc said...

everybody knows you're SUPPOSED to fertilize in the fall!

Farmer John said...

...but nothing to excess.

The Merry Widow said...

So buy more land and spread it over there too! Gee whiz, do I have to do your thinking for you? Oh never mind, I have enough of my own to do!

tmw

Farmer John said...

When ARE you going to start posting at your site tmw? There's at least 80 untended acres there running fallow at the moment that could use a good mowing. At least let me drop a few cows off and let 'em graze.

Farmer John said...

2 birds, 1 stone.

~~.

Farmer John said...

errr...
~~~~.

provided I can put my milkmaid to good use.

The Merry Widow said...

FJ- Only if she's a c-cup,, in a bikini! I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do there. I'm thinking along the lines of what G*D has shown me over the years. Some of it is rather esoteric, so you would probably enjoy it, i.e. visions of my own or other peoples and how it relates to what is happening in the world today! I'm afraid I'll have a lot to spread around! If your cows are into mystic type stuff...

tmw

Always On Watch said...

I really dislike stepping in cowpatties, especially fresh ones! They're hot!

That brings back some memories.

Always On Watch said...

I'm in a rush to get back to Beak's. Who was # 10,000?

Farmer John said...

...not exactly what I meant tmw, but I guess that could work too. I was thinking of getting nanc to milk the cows, then I could sell the milk (the extra ~~). The first two were getting the field mowed and simultaneously fertilizing it.

btw -nanc won, and as soon as the patties cool off we're going to have a buffalo-chip tossing contest. I'm sure AoW's got a few rusting hulks laying in her backyard we could use for prizes (and maybe elbro would call off his sharks were he to win one). Just a thought.

Farmer John said...

...and tmw, you know me and Mystic stuff. You had me reading Luke24 and John20 this am!

The Merry Widow said...

I did?

tmw

Always On Watch said...

Farmer,
I'm sure AoW's got a few rusting hulks laying in her backyard...

Not any longer. The County made us get rid of them.

But we've got lots of other stuff.

Always On Watch said...

Nanc won? I can furnish a door prize. We have extra doors.

LOL. I took my meds a few hours ago.

The Merry Widow said...

AoW- EB is agitating for a storm door. Nanc, is holding out on him, at least he acts like she is. I think he's just a little put out that Nanc won, again!
FJ is after mystic cows and the rest of us aregoing, Oh shucks!

tmw

American Crusader said...

EB won. So what was behind door #1?

American Crusader said...

Wait a minute...Nanc cheated.

nanc said...

I DON'T CHEAT!








anymore.

Elmer's Brother said...

and as soon as the patties cool off we're going to have a buffalo-chip tossing contest

Okay....but I'm not shaking the winners hand

The Merry Widow said...

How can you say that, EB? They are high in cellulose and burn great! Are you a chicken?
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw

nanc said...

oh, you'll shake the winners hand if enough of us hold you down, elbro.

Warren said...

pssst, nanc, i think we found his weak spot!

Now on to the second phase of the competition, the cow chip tossing contest!

later guys, workday for me.

nanc said...

ohhhhhhh, i can toss the crappe, but i don't know if i'm quite as good as elbro...

nanc said...

did i ever mention that i love this goofy little avatar? steve has it up at the hodgepodge - he likes it too!

Elmer's Brother said...

Sir Warren - You forgot the cheap booze at Beak's for the roast. Between the old storm door and your absent mindedness my lawyer, Jackie Chiles is gonna clean your clock.

Elmer's Brother said...

as for the cow chips you'll have to catch me first...not an easy task...back in the Ping Pong Delta I once ran away from some of Charlie's special forces...they coudn't catch me

The Merry Widow said...

Nanc- I'll agree with you on that! It takes an EXPERT CRAPPE THROWER to get any distance and I think that our very own ENERGIZER BUNNY, fits that bill!;o

tmw

Nee said...

nanc-
Congrats,10k, thx for stoppin by....didnt recognize you in your new....uhmmm

nanc said...

it's in honor of my best friend in the www - fern! thanx bensosilly - warren cassini created this one also, but fern won't wear it - too nacho i guess...

Always On Watch said...

Does the team-blogger at one's own blog qualify for the prize? Just asking.

Maybe the fern is too frondy for FN? Personally, I just LOVE it, but not as much as I love my own avatar. Long live Warren the Avatar Guy!

Elmer's Brother said...

Does the team-blogger at one's own blog qualify for the prize? Just asking.

AoW that is what I have been asking myself for two days. Jackie says the case is strong and that Sir Warren and Nanc should be entertaining the notion of settling. It's an open and shut case of pure nepotism. Meanwhile my poor children suffer in the cold without that old storm door. Yeah that's right pain and suffering too. Jackie says y'all better send that door. You've got another couple of days before the paperwork is filed.

beakerkin said...

I am returning to moderation. The knucklehead Greg has gone too far this time.

He screws up shoots his mouth off feigns ignorance and then cries for an apology. Sorry to say it but to call him human excerment is an insult to excrement.

I am thinking of retiring the Beak Speaks and moving to the other blog.

The Merry Widow said...

EB-In the American Southwest? In early October? You are a little pushy bubba-loo! Take a drive to the Ozarks and pick up the door, enjoy the trip and fire the lawyer! You'll save yourself a bundle and have a fun trip with the family! Talk to Jackie, I'm sure she would enjoy the trip with your young'uns!

tmw

nanc said...

okay, the second place whiner gets a free turkey dinner (the entawr family) at nanchouse this thanksgiving - DOES NOT include airfare, but lodging is possible - depending upon how you act at dinner.

i'm not shipping the door! it wouldn't fit through the automatic stamp machine at the post office...now i need to find a new post office...

Zelda said...

Hi Nanc!

Congratulations on your traffic.

Regarding the cyber baby shower you're hosting for MZ, I will gladly attend. Email me at theurbangrind at yahoo dot com and let me know what's involved.

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw jackie feels so strongly about the case that he is working pro bono. he was deeply moved when he saw the pics of my freezing children.

nanc - I am unmoved by the bribe, prepare for court, the honorable judge judy presiding

nanc said...

will do zelda!

nanc said...

oh elbro - brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

cube said...

Congrats!!!!

Am I 10,0001?

cube said...

Er, nanc, all of a sudden you're not looking like yourself. What happened?

nanc said...

i believe we have a few more years of this before we get that high, cube!

Elmer's Brother said...

I've gone public with your promise of an old storm door to the winner. The world will no longer doubt that the fix was in.

nanc said...

big baby!
