  2. And Mister just had a haircut! He would have been there, and lots more, but it was a bandwith war with Y.G. I uploaded what I had on Flickr. LOL

  5. Gollum,
    In all seriousness, it is hard to believe that in just a few months I will have been visiting your blog for almost a year. I was inticed and scared of RMS. I don't even remember how I found out about your blog. But once I did, a whole new world began. You helped bring so many people together. (And started so many people blogging! :-)) You have such an inspiring blog...and I love to read your ideas and thoughts about life, decorating, and all that you've shared.
    As I look at your Year-in-Review, it reminds me of my year...meeting such wonderful cyberspace buddies and being inspired in a way that was completely unexpected. It has been quite a ride, and I (and I know "we") thank you for it. :-)

  8. Thank you for making it a most enjoyable blog reading year. Like Tomarie, I'm unsure how I started reading your blog but it's the first place I stop at every morning. You've created beauty from the ugly part of RMS so it's no wonder that so many people read your blog. As for bandwith problems with Young Gollum, I have no idea what that means but just as long as there is your blog to read I'm happy.
    Happy New Year to all.
    Hugs,
    Naz

  11. Has it been a year already! You have filled our memories and lives with photos from the farm, mister, Dr. Gollum and your home.
    Your ideas and the books that you haven't written tells us a story about a friend we all met during our days of RMS and now blogging.
    I have enjoyed every post from the grand to the samllest detail and I just want to say "Thank you Gollum" what a dear person and blog friend you have been to all of us. Enjoy the new year and we look forward to teachings in the new 2009 year.

  16. Good Golly Gollum has it been a year? It seems like only yesterday that I started reading your blog! It was such a respite from all the uglys happening on RMS. You are responsible for so much of the goodness in blogland. I and so many others were inspired to start our own blogs after having fallen in love with yours! It was a fortuitous day indeed that I found your blog! And NOW look at all your little bloggy children!!*winks* So THANK YOU GOLLUM!! Vanna

    Thank you for the writing exercises! (That was the most fun ever!!!)

    Thank you for peaking my interest in dishes and tablescaping! (You make it look so easy!!!!!)

    Thank you for being you! It doesn't matter if you are Gollum, Michael or Fat Irene. Your warm & loving personality beams through Blogland like a childs nightlight...giving us all a safe place to express our talents without being ripped to shreads! Can you imagine if I had posted my tablescape on RMS??? (LOL)

  23. Hi Gollum,
    Like so many others have said, you and Susan are the reason I started this whole blogging experience. I was still using a non-digital camera :O) until September '08, so I've learned alot...especially, considering the fact that I'm not a computer geek. So, thanks for that and all the inspiration you provide to so many of us! Have a wonderful New Year!

  24. Happy, Happy New Year Gollum, I will be back in 2009 after Hogmanay!. Hope your celebrations are perfect and I look forward to another wonderful year with my blogging friends, thank you so much for the signed book, it really is one of my most prized posessions, have fun, biggest hugs, Kathy.

    ps I love your new plates.
