It's Backkkkkkkkkkkkk

What's back you ask????

LOL day - Love our Lurkers!! Organised by Bonnie - over on "My Bottom Smarts" 

I have participated for a number of years now.   I have tried all sorts of gimmicks to get folks to leave a little comment on The Journey with rarely any results.

So this year I am not using gimmicks - or begging - or whining - or stamping my feet to get my quiet visitors to say 'hello'.  

I am just gonna say I am glad you pop by occasionally. You prop up my numbers (which I swear I am trying to ignore - but can't.  AND the numbers are dropping)

If you gather some bit of information here (even if it's only that I am a bit of a nut case) If I can make you smile some days (like I said I am a bit of a nut case) Or bring a tear to your eye - then I am pleased

This is your day!!! a Celebration of all who come, read and quietly slip out........... have another cup of coffee - on me...... or a drink - whatever you fancy............... and accept my sincere thanks for stopping by to read......................


  1. I think there are natural highs and lows in blogging...sometimes it's lower simply because people are busier. Or they've moved to other venues, like social media sites. But either way, we still can find loyal readers here.

    Nice to meet you, and happy LOL Day.

  2. I've been a Member here for awhile but I don't think I have had the pleasure of commenting before!
    I am now De-Lurked! lol
    Happy LOL Day!

  3. It is very nice to meet you too Anastasia :) thank you for popping up and leaving a comment - it really makes my day !!!

  4. (big grin) Hey MrBBSpanker - thank you so much for de-lurking to let me know you are here - and have been for a while !!

    WOW two lurkers almost immediately - this could be a GREAT day!!

    (it takes so little to make me happy - cheeky grin)

  5. I'm not sure I qualify as a lurker, but I do lurk so there you have it. I'm just a terrible commentor. :)

    I read everything you post, and I'm sure you have far more readers than your numbers show. Those feed readers that people are so fond of skew your stats.

    Hi Morningstar! As you know I'm not a lurker. Your blog is the first one I read once I've made my coffee and lit the first cigarette. You often make me smile and sometimes I laugh so much that I save your post.
