The goal has been reached – we have had 10,000 views on our blog!! Thank you for your faithful reading. We appreciate it very much.
Now, about two weeks ago, I asked for ideas with regard how to celebrate this milestone. Creativity was never a strong point with most of our readers, that’s for sure. But we did get a few suggestions. Which brings me to our invitation: we will be hosting an Open House blog party, complete with gourmet viands, here at The Residence from 7:00-9:42pm tonight (10,000 seconds). I know it’s impromptu, but the Squicciarini family is nothing if not famous for being spontaneous 😀 We hope you will drop by. And remember that an extra perk will be spending time with the newly-returned International Travelers, and getting to view pictures and hear funny stories.
On a different note, when we particularly like something or someone (like Maggiano’s, or our Uncle Fred), we do a Round Table List. Morgan created this concept; it stems, of course, from the Knights of the Round Table, and the equality associated with that legend. We sit at a table (and no, it doesn’t have to be round), and pass around a paper or notebook on which we make a list of all the things we love about the subject. Per a suggestion from a valued reader of our blog, we have done a Round Table List on Mr. Rick Hergenreter:
What’s so cool about Mr. Hergenreter?
- One word: military.
- Deadpan humor
- Gives hugs
- No memory whatsoever
- Has a pretty great family…not to mention being like the youngest grandfather we know (!)
- And even with that great family, still retains relatively good looks 😀
- Feels perfectly at ease playing cheesy charade games with kids in which one’s maturity and self respect are compromised
- Plays the guitar
- Is a terrific conversationalist
- Can actually moonwalk!
We love you, Mr. Hergenreter – thanks for reading, and we hope to see you soon! 😉
P.S.: this invitation is for real, people. If you’re free, do drop by anytime between 7:00 and 9:42pm. We’re always open to spending time with our friends!
P.S.S.: seize the opportunity, because I think we’ll hold off on the next milestone party until we’re up to 25,000… which, who knows, could be next month! 😉
