When I started this blog I never envisioned it would come to this, but today Astoria-Rust celebrates its 1,000th post. Who knew I could pile it so high for so long.
I no longer write about politics and I rarely write about how quirky I am any more. I'm sure if I stick with it for another thousand posts I'll find that I'm no longer writing about the sort of stuff I'm writing about now.
Some of you have been reading since the start. What could have you done with those one thousand minutes had you not come here every day? That's nearly 17 hours you've spent reading this blog, and if you commented on a regular basis...it's nearly a life time. I know some of you want to be polite and say it was worth all 17 hours, but really, if you were told you only had 17 hours left to live would you still spend it reading this blog? Sadly, I would probably spend some of my last 17 hours writing this blog.
So thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me. Thanks for all the thoughtful comments. Thanks to all that read every day and tell me in person that you are too shy to comment, I know you are there. I hope I can keep it interesting for you.
