I have not been paying attention to the stats on this meager endeavor of a blog and so I missed it when the counter went passed 3 million visitors (actually that is not quite correct since the counter was not installed at the time the blog was begun so I am guessing it is a couple of hundred thousand visitors behind). Anyway, there is no way of counting the cross posting that I know takes place on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc... So, this is my awkward way of acknowledging the many folks who find my words interesting or who just tune in to see who comments and to say thank you. It has been and continues to be a somewhat fun hobby for a fellow who does not have too many of them. Even though many others have shuttered their blogs over the years, I guess I will plod on in being cantankerous, curmudgeonly, and crusty (which is not that hard for me, really). So if you view to complain or contradict or if you view to agree and assent, thanks for reading. God bless you.... Carry on.
