That last photo haha! Well deserved, John. Deb (Ontario, Canada)
Tempted to unfollow now to out you back under!Well done, I seem to be stuck around 220 something!
You dare x
Is that second picture you? Second from last, I mean - or is that just as bad?I wonder who else remembers that TV advert - (Sings) "One thousand and one cleans a big, big carpet for less than half-a-crown - (bass voice) For less than half-a-crown - Fine action foam. Deep clean. Brings up carpets like new. (Reprise) One thousand and one cleans a big, big carpet for less than half-a-crown!Just saying.
Yes it's me
You're kidding! And I just meant it as a throwaway remark. Btw: Very handsome. :-)
I knew that was you!!
You complete tart.
I've never denied it! I am a true slag
... cleans a big, big carpet, for less than half a crown...
Congrats! Love all these gifs, LOL!
You got your wish. Happy Dance time....celebration wine....all that good stuff.
congratulations. in 7 years I've never been able to break 250.
Everyone go to Ellen's blog please!
Raybeard beat me to the song!...congrats John..it's the little things in life eh? xx
That's a relief, Libby. Thank you. Was afraid people would write me off as just another dotty old fogey - which I am!
You both beat me to that song. As soon as I saw the heading I thought: One thousand and one cleans a big, big carpet for less than half-a-crown!
You seem to be doing something right !And I am doing something wrong obviously with a mere 36 followers (to whom I am extremely grateful) in my 10 years of blogging.Shite !
And in just eight years I've achieved a magnificent FORTY ONE! Beating you! Nah nah na-NAH nah! :-)
It's quality not quantity
I'd like to think that. Trouble is, J.G., you've got BOTH!
Perhaps you could show a wee bit of enthusiasm John...geez. Seriously, well done, well done, well done.
Congratulations and well deserved! Maybe Albert will bring you a special gift for the occasion. Doesn't the new season of The Walking Dead begin again soon just to add to your delight?
I'm wetting my panties...Monday its shown here
Personally I think this touting for followers thing is all getting rather foolish!PS I'm now at 418 and all because of you and I'm very excited but not dancing due to "sensitive bladder" as the annoying advert says!!!Oooops too much information?
Sour grapes baby xx
sweet !cheers, parsnip
...and counting! Congrats on all those Blogger homies. You are truly deserving of such a big audience!
I know x
LOL......you know .
WOW you and Winnie look so young in the second to last one ! X
She was only a puppy
Totally deflated, John. You may remember that ages ago - when you were still in the few hundreds - I said I'd "follow" you officially as your 1000th follower, or at a push 999th. This morning everything was fine. Getting close. Thought give it time, a few more hours. Like an ebay auction of old I'll make it at the last minute. NOT SO. Never mind. You don't need me to inflate your numbers. Still, I suppose we can make it official at 1999 or 2000.Happy that you are happy. Congrats.U
I know I'm fickle but it pleased me
As if should. You deserve to be noticed, read,followed and enjoyed.
I'm a recent follower, so I just may have helped push your blog over the edge of the 1,000 followers mark :)
I read you all the time and have done for several years, but no idea if I am a " follower" or not. Can't find anything to click on to become one either! Help!
Right hand bar , just under the photo of me in the beanie hat!
Ah….. the reason I couldn't find anything to click on to become a follower, was because I am already a follower ! I clicked unfollow and it told me I was a follower already. Are you following me?
When I first saw this post I thought you were celebrating the new season start of Walking Dead.lizzy
That will be Monday !
I have no doubt you'll try for 2001.Congratulations!!!!Love the cat gif!
Do my best jonno!
Chuffed for you. 😋 🎇🎆🎇🎆🎇🎆
Russell Crowe has never looked better, makes me feel quite...no let's not go there! Congratulations John xx
Isn't he lovely?
No, Thank you John. You would not be followed if you were an annoying bore :)
Ha ha! Not excited much, are you? :)
Glad you are in a better place than yesterday John.
Why? Was he in Rhyl?
Somebody must have dropped an acid tab in my tea. All those pictures appear to be moving!
I'm up with the yoof YP
Congrats! Now don't forget about us individually just because you're getting famous! Haha!
Congratulations! I hope there's many more stories to come.
WOO to the HOO for YOU!(says the woman with 57 followers)
You deserved my vote, my tender-hearted friend. Bask in your popularity.
Who is that? X
It's me. I know how to comment but don't know how to be a blogger. At 86, I am curtailing my 'firsts' so is it alright to just comment ?
I see you threw a little Russel Crow (Crowe?) in there. I am not surprised you have so many followers. Congratulations! -Jenn
Now you are up to 1,005. Congrats. I also loved looking at all of the GIFs, as they are currently one of my favorite things on the Internet.
I enjoyed finding them.....it made me feel hipNow I have said hip...I now know I am anything but.....
Congratulations and well deserved. Love all your gif's, couldn't stop smiling.
We all need a smile tonight me thinks
Well done...but tell me, how did you get our Demon Puss to poseMuch less smile
Well done, your blog always make me smile (and sometimes shed a tear).
If it weeent for you I would have a very boring morning every day...I have my first cup of coffee and start my day reading Going Gently.. that is the way I start each day☀️
Pardon my typing on the phone typos
Congrats, John !!! Totally deserved !!! XO
And here was me thinking you'd be celebrating!
You are so so welcome. The pleasure is all mine.
It's a pleasure, k-e-e-p b-l-o-g-g-i-n-g.Jan Bx
The kermit one is my favorite. :) Congrats John, I finally signed up just to help you with your obsession! You are now one of only three blogs I actually officially follow. Favoritism!
Now maybe you'll relax and not be such a demanding old tart .... and all these GIFs have made my eyes go funny ;-)Congratulations.Now I'm stuck at an annoying 882, I suppose every number other than a rounded one is going to be annoying now ..... I think we're all turning OCD.To quote old Brucie .... 'Good game, good game' :-)
Of course on the basis of logarithms b, x and y being positive to the power of 10 my ratio of comments to followers is still bigger than yoursxxxx
Rachel, lol ... mine also.
Congratulations to you -- and to all your fans!
Congratulations! Loving the gifs. I have never mastered gifs. Never saw the point of Russell Crow before either, but after that picture - well howdy!
I think it was Mary in the pot that got you over the line...xx
Congratulations John Glad I found your blog. Enjoy it immensely.
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
