Six years ago today, I took the advice of a friend of mine in
I’d like to take this quick opportunity to thank everyone who currently reads TDOY and encourages my behavior—particularly the fine blogs listed on the right, who risk their fine reputations everyday by linking to me. I’d particularly like to thank Sheri Zollinger and Scott Clevenger at World O’Crap for providing specific inspiration (roughly translated as “Hey…if they can do it, I certainly can…”), and longtime supporters like Bill Crider, Elisson, Linda, Jaime Weinman, Vince Keenan, Brent McKee, Andrew Leal, Tony Figueroa, Harry Heuser, Jeff Kallman, Vince Paterno, Ed Copeland, Tom Sutpen and Stephen Cooke, Toby O’Brien, Tony Kay, the late Sam Johnson, Stacia, Rick Brooks and Matt Hinrichs. (Profuse apologies to anyone I may have left out.) As for the people who e-mail me with questions and/or just general positive feelings on how much they like the blog—particularly the ones who leave the anonymous observations in the comments section—well, I don’t blame you for wishing to remain anonymous. (You have to be careful when you’re running for City Council.)
It is my fervent wish to be able to continue amusing myself and others with Thrilling Days of Yesteryear for another year and many more to come. Everyone is welcome to have a generous slice of celebratory cake…all I ask is that you please use the drink coasters if you’re gonna set that glass of punch on the coffee table.
