Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

TOOKS did it!!! 25,000!!! Celebration Thread!!

Postby rwhen » Sat Sep 14, 2019 8:47 am

Let's use this thread to help her on the way to the last 21 and a place to congrats and have a party.

I posted over on FB of the celebration coming, so we can help TOOKS get there.

Ya know, back in the day...when Vanadarlin', Scribbles and myself got three rings - it was easy, so many threads to post on and also you could make a post and in five minutes two or three people already posted back...leaving open for another post. No so much these days...it is hard to even get ten posts a day in if one is really loving the site and still a regular visitor and regular poster.

So TOOKS getting here, is a true milestone....

Let's help her along!!

PS. I'll change the title of the thread when she does make it official. ;)

She will, she is in Scotland PA for her mothers birthday today....tomorrow she will be back and posting away. :D This is just to help her along. At least that is what we used to do back in the day to give her a chance for a few more posts before the big celebration.

Hey!!!! 25,000 amazing, ridiculous, funny, Louie-filled posts. :-)

Happy three rings day, Tooks!!!

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome

I see a Luthy and a Wenchy and an Iris...:hug: to all three of you!!! Glad you got in Wenchy!! :D

Tick Tock Tooks!!

I figure you will make the "big one" on the TVM...so I'll be checking there this morning too. I have to work at noon, but I'll be back at 5pm my time.
