My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

In honor of 100

HA, well, it sounded like a good title...it's actually Post 101. Can't believe I've written that much.

When Subvet got me all set up here on blogger I told him I felt like I had a lot to say...and no one to say it to. Guess this is proof!

I'm very thankful that each of you come by here and read my silly musings. I consider you dear friends. So, I thought I'd go down my list and tell the #1 thing that I like about each of my regular commenters. If you're a new regular commenter I will get to know you better before I pick just 1 thing! "Come in! and know me better, man!" (can you place that quote? here's a hint, it's from a book that I start reading every December.)

Linda, at Are We There Yet? - I love the way she totally supports her teenage daughters!

Glen at Ballseye's Boomers - I love the shooting tips.

BWH at Big White Hat - I love how he supports all parents of children with PDD.

Diane at Diane's Place - I love how she's working her hiney off to take care of her granddaughter.

DaD at Infantry Dad - I love how he goes out of his way to support military families.

Mirre at Kiss Kus - I love how she shares bits of life in The Netherlands.

Kitty at Kitty's Korner - I love her sincerity in every post and comment.

No Apology at No Apology - I love all the research and time he puts into each post.

Pea at Pea's Corner - I love her Fairy Garden.

Jennifer at PenofJen, McBenning School, LotsforLess, JeLi deSigns, and The New Me - I love that she keeps saying I'm funny!

Susan at Penless Writer - I love that she's an (unintentional) online preacher!

Stephanie at Scraps - I love how smart she is! She's known the most T-T words to date AND named Sonshine's baby quilt pattern!!

Chief at Smoldering Embers In A Mohawk Campfire - I love that I always laugh out loud reading his site!

Subvet at Blowing San #1 - "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! One Onethousand, Two Onethousand......" (that one's a movie) I love our life together! Blog-wise, I love that he stays on top of all the political "stuff" and is still able to keep his sense of humor, something I can't do.

Cookie at The Cook Shack - I love his motto, "Never trust a skinny cook."

Ellen at The Happy Wonderer - I love that she frequently breaks out into song and will post entire song lyrics, I also enjoy the glimpses into her Russian heritage.

Heather at The Zoo - I love that she recently had all the girl cousins in her family over for an enormous sleep-over...and she survived!!

Eren at This Vintage Chica - I love that she works hard at raising her 3 little boys.

OK, now, I thought that just for fun I'd have a little pop-quiz. (Don't worry, it's open blog.) There are 4 rooms in my house that are painted different colors, other than white. Can you name the colors? I'll email every correct entry a copy of my favorite punch recipe. If you can also match the correct color to the correct room you'll get a copy of my late aunt's Fantastic Crawfish Etouffee' recipe thrown in!

Happy Searching!!

Linda got the quote!! I'll have to go back and see, but I think Linda and Diane are tops on naming quotes.
