Here's one for the fine folks over at Political Conservatives (and anyone else with a sense of humor).
Folks, a milestone worthy of being celebrated has been reached -- the Crotchety Old Man has posted over 500 pearls of wisdom!
We at the All Arkie Army are thrilled that Crotchety has stuck it out this long and is still going strong.
Well, I -- The Hawg -- am thrilled at least. I'm certain no one here at the All Arkie Army will disagree, right?
At any rate, I feel compelled to mention that I've only been blogging away since July. Crotchety runs one of the first blogs I ran across that caused me to keep visiting. Why? He's a hoot, that's why. And he's OK for a Yankee.
He's so OK, in fact, that he holds down the New Jersey Division of the All Arkie Army. He's so OK that I'd be proud to treat him to a dandy slice of pie at the famed Ed & Kay's here in Benton, Ark., if he ever gets down this way.
He's so OK that some of the visitors here had some nice things to say about Crotchety when I mentioned his upcoming milestone the other day. The always glib Don from Beyond Left Field simply sends his congratulations -- perhaps he knows that little more needs to be said about such an acclaimed fellow blogger.
Meanwhile, Patricia Rockwell from both Subjective Soup and Communications Exchange was a bit less concise, but eloquent as ever.
"Hey, I am a fan of Crotchety and all the things he yells at," she said. "Including cars!"
Lot 2 Learn from "I will have the...," "Did I miss something?" et al ran across Crotchety in much the same way that I did.
"I found Crotchety when I first joined blogcatalog about a year ago, and since then I have not missed a post," he said. "I love his take on life, and his outlook on everyday events. Great job, Crotchety!"
As for me, all I can say is that anyone who checks out blogs regularly and doesn't visit Crotchety at least once a day (he's a prolific fellow) is really missing out on something. If he's not posting his dandy "caption this picture" feature on Wednesdays he's describing the fine ways he treats Mrs. Crotchety, talking common sense politics, taking swipes at things he hates and generally just being as entertaining as an evening of shooting rats down at the dump.
So, I extend my congratulations to Crotchety, too, and hope he keeps yelling at those cars for years to come. Go pay him a visit, huh?

It has come to my attention that the Crotchety Old Man, who heads up the mighty important New Jersey Division of the All Arkie Army, is getting ready to celebrate his 500th post.
Now, that's a pretty big deal, isn't it? I sure think so and I do believe he deserved a little recognition. If you're not familiar with Crotchety, click right here and get familiar, huh?
As I'm sure I've mentioned before, I've got a background in journalism. Yes, The Hawg was a business reporter before he was a public relations guy. I figure I should tap that long-dormant journalism skill to do something special for Crotchety, but I'll need your help.
Since most people who visit here are familiar Crotchety, I'm sure y'all have some nice things to say about him. So, leave a comment saying how wonderful Crotchety is and I'll put those all together in a nice little article to be posted here and at my primary blog, The Natural State Hawg.
So, leave those comments and let's acknowledge Crotchety's achievement in a big way. But hurry -- he's up to post #496 at the time of this writing so that 500th post will be rolling around soon.
I went and applied to be a rafter so I can wax poetic about various things. If you have a minute, click right here and give my stuff a thumbs up and leave a comment if you want. Thanks!
