Happy Birthday to me

I have been here about a year and I thought that I would say "Thank You" to all 159,718 of you for making this past year genuinely one of the best ever. Over the months I have met people from all nations and every walk of life. I have made close personal friendships with several and been on more than acquaintanceship terms with many more. I have seen laughter and tears, squabbles and some very real sadness. People have gone and then returned, or stayed away; but my life has been the richer for knowing them. I have had what little talent that I have encouraged and been clutched to more bosoms than is entirely healthy for a young lad! Most of all though, I have experienced a very real and genuine friendship from so many. So thank you all. Here's to whatever happens next.

Well Happy Birthday you veteran mylotter you! I'd post a cake for you to share with us, but my photos never seem to make it to where I want them on discussions. On behalf of the 159,718 members here, may I say, it has been OUR pleasure as much as yours to have you among us. The site is richer for your humor, your talent and your British upper lip! Here's to another year of love, laughter, less sadness and more gladness! Cheers!

Thank you Sparky. I didn't really do this for congratulations. But I'm not daft! LOL. Your friendship has been a constant through our mutual trials and tribulations. I feel very grateful for that. XXXX

Ah, my favorite British Fish! You make it so easy to be your friend. You can be tough, but always fair, always coming from the heart even when the head is screaming, "This is daft!". You can't possibly imagine how much that has meant, not just to me, but from the responses here, many others. You deserve your congrats!

Look up, up, up to P1key's response to me. You better make room out in spunky's run for Sparky. He's gettin' to be a right pain in the a$$ around here. He seems to be taking his name literally and he's throwin sparks all over the place all the time. I figure you can knock some sense into him, since he's named after you.

How I feel you described this site quite well for sure. I know that in the 2+ yrs. that I have been an active member here it has been an awesome one for me for sure. I too have made many wonderful friends, and met many wonderful people here like you, and I continue to find this place a Great place to continue to want to come too each day for sure. Personally I often wish many people never would choose to leave here, and many more could continue to want to join in the Fun, but each person we meet will leave an imprint on our life, and whether it be Good or Bad for the short time we know them it makes who become who we are as well. Here's to another wonderful yr. my friend, and wishing you the Best!!

This is a curious place to be. There are people from all across the human spectrum and somehow we manage to get on together (mostly). I came here never expecting to make the friendships that I have done and if for no other reason, am grateful for that. As you say, here's to another year.

I do hope that you enjoy being here. I am afraid that I don't come here for the money any more. I know that I have made in excess of $200 of that helps you any. But your earnings will vary depending on how much time and energy you put in. My advice is to forget the money and concentrate on having fun.

Happy birthday Pike and i do hope that this doesn't get deleted :D. Thanking the mylot community would be better rather than thanking all the members here, as many of them have just arrived and don't know who you are, and some of them were long gone before you got here. I started off at the end of may, so i am still a few months away from my 1 year mylot anniversary.

Maybe. I kind of think that's what I am doing, thanking the community. If I get banned for thanking people then such is life. I am centred and happy now my friend.

This is a very wonderful community (and diverse, as well), isn't it? I love that we can all converse without giving much thought of who we are talking to, where we're from, or if we're male or female. None of that is under the microscope compared to other sites. It's certainly made me feel comfortable! Happy anniversary. :-)

Ok, you wanna talk sheep....... Well, y'know the horned ram that I named after sparks. Called him "Sparky", I did. He has a REAL ATTITUDE, y'know. He is always raking his horns on everything, which just wrecks stuff steady. He fights will all the other guys, and wins, because he has built in weapons. I don't know what to do with him. I don't want to put him all by himself because it makes more work for me that way. But I might just have to. Most, if they gave me this much greif, I could get pissy and just kill him and eat him. But he's just worth too much money. Maybe I should send him out west to see his namesake and she can shake some sense into him. Waddya think, P1key?

What other way is there to celebrate Cinders? Are you organised yet? XXXX
31 Jan 09
Glad you celebrated in the world of mylot x Organising has now been postponed to tuesday so that boyf can help, my job was too get all the old clothes that we don't wear anymore and take them to the clothes bank. At least if he helps then I wont throw away his best clothes - I've been doing the washing today which he was meant to have done yesterday!!!!

You've not got the hang of this yet Cinders. Throw his best clothes. That's what happens to me and I'm better for it (so I am told)! LOL. XXX

You are quite right Dory. This is an anniversary. However, it's too late to change the title now. Thank you. If I hadn't come here I would always have thought of Beduff as Bedworth and a place to be missed. Now of course, I shall make a special point of visiting just to see the Croc family! XXXX

You have brought sunshine and rainbows into their lives just being you. Well if I ever get to clutch you to my bosom better have a snorkel so you will be able to breath some air..cause with DD's you never know..wouldn't want you to smother..
