If you are
Of course, there was controversy at first as Kreg got out his abacus and questioned the VALIDITY of it being my 500th post...but I set him straight about that AND the whole Kennedy Assassination thing. So now I owe him a drink next time I spot Elvis, and even though this just may be my 505th post, we're gonna say that this is my 496 post because... O MY GAWD THESE NUMBERS ARE HURTING MY HEAD.
So how are we celebrating and who wins that plaque?
I should give the plaque to my dear friend Ruth (RPC in comments) who wrote me and asked what the traditional gift is for a 500th blog anniversary. DIAMONDS I answered (even though I meant cash) So Ruth showed up at my studio yesterday with DIAMONDS.
52 of those babies. CAN THERE BE A GREATER GIFT THAN TO GIVE SOMEONE A PUN? I think not, Chickens. Ruth clearly knows the way to my hearts--in spades. And to further seal the deal she gave me this:
This is Ruth and her gift for me. That is a bottle of fine award winning Strawberry Wine that SHE MADE HERSELF with no help from Mr. Bartle and Mr. James. I lerves me some
