June 9, 2003? I suppose you know best but I remember some powerful writing about 9/11. I thought you started blogging soon after that.
Good call. Actually, I did but off of another site. You can see some pages in May of 2002 @ the wayback machine, but there were others before that which are now lost.
Happy Blogiversary, Gerard.
Here's to the next 5,6 - whatever.
Just keep 'em comin'.
Congratulations and thanks for your efforts!
I wouldn't miss my daily, sometimes thrice daily ("I wonder if he's added something."), visits even if I had significant cramps and a bad rash.
Time flies when you're having fun!
Here is to many more.
Congrats, and thanks for the great reading.
Thanks for the memories, Gerard, and many happy returns of the day. I'm looking forward to the future. Why do I check in almost daily?
Because (wait for it):
"I gots to know!"
Many, many happy returns of this day. Yes, it is a selfish Birthday wish from me, but then I am a giddy girl in the presence of a well-turned phrase, a glimpse of beauty, a haunted memory.
Congrats and happy birthday, you fine wordsmith, you! Peace be with you.
Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I do feel lucky. Happy birthday.
Good on ye!
Keep on keeping on, sir. Happy, oh happy day to you.
The link at the end of the comments says AMERICAN DIGEST :HOME. Well, maybe not quite exactly home, but certainly a place that I stop by every day, and a place where I can count on reading or seeing something that will make me glad I did stop by.
Let me throw my congrats into the mix.
Still don't know how you can stand the mental attitude of the Queen Anne area, though.
Callooh! Callay! Hooray! Hooray!
Forever, and ever, amen.
Happy Blog Birthday, Gerard.
The covers of this book are too close together. Keep going.
Thanks for the time and thoughts that you put into the site!
You are most welcome. As are all my valued readers.
Happy blogday, and thanks for the daily must-read, Gerard!
Your wordsmithing abilities are amazing. Congrads!
Tip of the old chapeau. Keep up the good work.
Congratulations on your anniversary. I appreciate your blog.
