Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone.

May this year produce health, wealth, and obviously, happiness.

And what a way to start off the new year.

The voting ended for Humorblogger of the Year and guess what?

The award
Designed by Rubba

goes to ME!!!

Thank you for your votes. I am so honored. I am so grateful to Chelle and all the members of, the best group of humorbloggers anywhere. Everyone is welcome to stop by for free food and beer to read some of the best humorbloggers around. It is a fast growing group of truly funny folks.

By the way, I've heard it comes with a new car, and I'm pretty sure it will be hot.


Catch you tomorrow with a very special Thursday post as the previous theme will be renewed. Youse will never believe what I've found. Yeah, I have a lot of free time to search for the truly weird stuff.
