Four Farookin’ Years.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:39 pm

ourf ingersf.jpgHoly crap! I’ve been at this for four years now. Back when I posted my first entry, I had no idea what an adventure this exercise would turn out to be. I figured I would shoot some silliness into cyberspace for a couple of weeks to get it out of my system, thinking that nobody but my cousin Jack (who is to blame for getting me into this) would read it, or perhaps that some alien astronomer geek in another galaxy searching for life forms might happen upon it.

As such, I was then, and remain to this day, amazed and deeply flattered that some people regularly find this place worthy of a minute or two of their time. And, I never dreamed that writing on this page would lead to my making so many new friends all over the country (and a few outside the country) both online and in person. Go figure.

Where will it all lead? I have no idea. I suspect that at some point I’ll run out of things to say. In fact, some days I think that I have already hit that point, but so far, it hasn’t happened – at least I don’t think it has. Until that day comes, I guess I’ll keep strokin’.

Thank you all very much for hanging around.


  1. One of the stars of the blogosphere… that’s what you are!

  5. You, Sir, have my thanks for being here.

    A bit over a year, now, that I’ve been reading you.
    You never fail to ammuse, entertain, or enlighten me. Sometimes all three at once.

    You are indeed a gem, Jim!

  6. I can’t say exactly how long I’ve been reading, but it’s more than half the time you’ve been writing. I hope you take it as a compliment when I say that I disagree with your politics about as often as I disagreed with that cranky Southern guy that up and died on us, but I love your stuff nonetheless. Happy Anniversary!

  7. Four Years! Holy crap! 😉 You’re old! Heh.

    You’re one of the most talented writers out there. You are so damn funny. Every time I come over, I leave laughing. Its a bright spot and always has been.

  8. Jimbo, you are the man, and shalom shout-out to Eric, who introduced me to you ….

    If you were any more fun to read, you’d be farookin’ illegal.

    See, Jersey does has some redeemable qualities.

  20. Four years? Just Damn!

    If there’s anything worthwhile about this Blogging Biz, it’s that I get to read the crap that creative minds like yours spew forth. And, as an extra added bonus, I’ve been able to hang out with you in da flesh!

    Jim, may you continue to write as long as you’re enjoying it…and may you long continue to enjoy it. You are truly one of the gems of the Bloggy-Sphere…and a credit to Joisey!

  21. Congratulations Jim! I stumbled into the PRS for the second edition of Master Sgt. John “Jack” Steele, adjunct professor of law (how is he, anyway??), and your blog has been the highlight of my day ever since.

    Keep up the good work!

  23. No, my thanks to you for four years of good reads, fun reads, food for thought, and more. Pour it on my friend, pour it on.

  25. As long as there’s Three Olives Chocolate Vodka, I suspect you’ll have plenty to say, my friend. Viva la vodka!

  26. Happy blogday, even though I am a day late (and a dollar short)!! Here’s to meeting at another blogmeet in 2007!

    Comment by Michele — November 30, 2006 @ 6:45 pm

  27. Jim,
    PRS is one of my top ten first cup of coffee reads every morning. You never fail to make me smile or stop to think. You’re a gentleman both on and off the web.
    Here’s to four more and many after that.

  35. I didn’t figure I could last the year and a half I have been bloggin but I still manage to find something to rant about..and as long as there are democrats and republicans I suspect that I will. Will Rogers said sumthin about it way back in the last century..said he got most of his material from the newspapers..
