Thank You Dan


On the 20th of June the Hubby underwent a second surgery on his neck. I chose to tell only a handful of people and then I quietly disappeared from the blogoshpere. During my absence I did not speak with any of my blogger buddies and I didn't log onto blogger to check my blog. 

I did not know it at the time, but one of my blogger buddies who was concerned about me wrote a post to make me laugh, to distract me from my troubles. Today I'd like to thank that blogger. 


Thank you Dan. Thank you for caring and for putting together a post that was so out there and over the top it was shameful. 

I hope to post my Ronin women on Friday. The figures are done and I've just got to suss out how to put them on the new bases and get those bases painted. Let's see if I can do it!!

    1. It's the best part of blogging I think. Such fun people around here. They turned out better than I thought they would. I've got three new figures on the painting table and have to pry myself away from them long enough to finish this project!

  2. I'm sure you can get it done. After everything you've done you can't be defeated by a miniature base now. That was a pretty sweet thing for Dan to do, and I can understand why you went and made this post :)

    1. The thing with me is that when it comes to basing I'm indifferent. I just want to paint the figure, be done and get onto the next figure. I'm going to have to get over it.

      Most people think of Dan as a wild risk-taking blogger and he is. But he has a sweet and kind side too. It's nice when he lets that slip out!

  3. Best of luck to your husband Anne, I'm glad that the post cheered you up a little too, that was very kind of Dan no matter what way you look at it really.

    1. That post was outrageous. He had me in a corn field done in claymation wearing shamrock pasties. It was brilliantly filthy!

  4. Blogger is quite a nice place after all, is it not?

    Best of luck to your husband.

    1. It's the people that make it fun and I know it sounds cliche, but it really is true.

  5. The camaraderie part of blogging has amazed me. I never thought it would be this good. Now lets see these figures.

    Good on you Dan.

    1. I had no idea that blogger would end of the way it has for me when I started. Heck, my first post was just a video and it took me a long time to work up the nerve to follow someone.

      I'm hoping I don't wreck the figures while getting them off the slotted bases I've super-glued them onto for painting. I'm going to take pictures of them before I do that just in case!!

  6. I hope all went well on the second surgery. That was super sweet of Dan to go out of his way and make a post for you! It's amazing the support you can find through blogger friends :)

    1. That was a tough one, I'm still having trouble talking about it to my closest friends. One day when I'm less emotional I'll write a piece about how that went and what those first couple of days felt like. Some of it is getting better though.

      Even the Cat has been a blessing. That's how good blogger is!

    2. Even the Cat? haha I won't let you forget that.

    3. I'm glad to hear that you've found the support and distraction you need through blogger. It really has turned out to be a great collection of friends :)

      When you're ready to talk about it, we will all be ready to listen. I'll say another prayer for you tonight. xo

  7. Dan has this unique out of the world sense of humor, which makes him unique and special and funny. Lot many times I find solace from words of fellow bloggers and their kind words.
    Good job Dan. And good to know the updates I would like to ask so many questions but I can understand why you would like some time off.

    Cant wait for Ronin woman, I love the monicker, and the group name. Cant wait to squish the cat and free your garden. Lovely roses.

    1. Dan is one of those bloggers that can say anything he wants about me and no matter how rude or out there it is I laugh because I've gotten to know him. And you've seen the stuff he's done on me!!! And the thing is that when he does this wacky stuff he does it to honor you. It just looks like he's slaughtered you!!

      The girls look pretty good and I hope you like what I did with your figure!

  8. That's a really sweet gesture. We're all in your corner and hope everything is going well. All the best to you and yours.

  9. Well that wasn't so bad! I was expecting a taste of my own medicine! Yep, there is still some nice lingering around in me! I will try not to let it slip out again! lol

    It was a pleasure to brighten up your day!

    1. Don't worry, Dan....I'm sure she's got something up her sleeve just waiting in case you decide to turn against the Alliance and side with the evil cat!

      Delete
    2. I bet she has a post ready that would unleash hell... just sitting on stand-by, waiting for the right moment to strike!

      I am neither Alliance nor part of the Evil Kitty Kat Klub! I am master of Blogonia, neutral in all matters! Just think of me as the USA of the blogosphere... trying to police the world and pissing people off!

      Delete
    3. There's no way I could roast Dan. In order to make it work I'd have to outdo him and there's no way I could. He's the King of outrageous. Never play a player is what I was taught!

      Dan, when I was sitting down to write this I was actually thinking that the best way to describe you was as the quintessential American comedian. Because you do represent American humor. Fearless and cutting edge.

    4. @Anne Why thank you very much! The best compliment ever!

  10. Glad to here you are holding up well, and you and hubby are still in my prayers.

    Best regards and blessing.

  12. That's what I love about Blogger, if you disappear for a bit, people won't just ignore it because they genuinely care about you.

    Looking forward to Friday, and we both send happy thoughts for you and hubby.

    1. If you guys disappeared blogger would hire a search team to find you. Mass panic would ensue, lemmings would fly and pigs would swim!

      Thanks guys and I'm glad to know the fires didn't get near your homes.

  13. Wait, what? Dan is nice? Says who? I thought he just drank beer, BBQ'd and pee'd off his deck...you mean he's nice aside from fun too?

    Just kidding, Dan. I know for a fact, you're a sweet and kind person with a huge heart of gold! The post you did for Anne was great and had me laughing!

    Anne, I can't wait to see the ladies...woo hoo!! I'll be packing on Friday so I'm not sure what time I'll be on here but I'll check on here for sure =)

    1. Hey now! Even nice guys can drink beer and eat good! But we all have to piss... just so happens I can do it anywhere!

      My favorite part of that post for Anne... molding that playdough into some awesome boobies! You hear that Anne? I touched your boobs! lmao

      Delete
    2. Don't forget Dan, you can also double stream!!

      Delete
    3. That was the only stipulation I ever gave you when making fun of me was that the boobies had to be good. And you delivered, both times. Now when I look at myself in the mirror I keep expecting to see shamrocks!!

      Don't encourage him Elsie, you'll just make him worse!!

      Delete
    4. Elsie, your figure will go up with Pat and De as the Alliance figures series. I'm still working on you. Your skin is coming out really nice and I'm going to attempt to give your figure eyeshadow. I think there's enough space for it between the eye and the brow. I hope so because it would look really sweet.

      Delete
    5. @Elsie Makes it much easier to piss on you all! Well, the awards I get anyways! I wouldn't piss on my favorite turds!

      Delete
    6. Oh Dan, you're just so sensitive!!

      Delete
    7. oh la la, my figure is getting sexier and sexier! Eyeshadow? Big boobies with silky skin! I'm gonna rock!

      aww, Dan, you just called me a turd. I knew you were a sweetie!

      Delete
    8. I don't call my blog shameful promotions for nothing! I piss on you as I give a shout out! lol

      In all seriousness though, I'm glad you guys know me well enough to know it's all for fun...except for that time when I hung that 2 pesos dude out to dry! "Nice post!"

      I bet there have been tons of people whose first visit to my blog scared them away leaving them thinking "Man! That guy is a dick!". That of course, is not the case at all! I actually lost a few followers when I introduced the Wall of Shame. Which is fine by me. Simply weeding out the spammers leaving nothing but real people like you guys! Hence the title to that post "Pulling Weeds"

      Delete
  14. Pffft the cat has just lost all faith in you, being so nice to the guy that shakes his willy about. No wonder the alliance will never win, siding with the drunks hahaha but yeah Dan can take it and dish it out which makes for an oh so fun shout

    1. You ever see a beer drenched kitty? You're about too! The thing about us drunks...we simply don't care! lol

      I have just sold some nukes to the Alliance in the black market of armed idiots! What they do with those nukes is not my problem! As I said, I am neutral! lol

      Delete
    2. The Alliance will win Cat. You are one, we are many and we don't eat poo. Yeah if a blogger is going to go to the level that Dan goes to, you have to be able to take as good as you give. And he does that without flinching. I have no idea how he manages it. I would have an ulcer as big as Canada if it were me.

      And the Alliance thanks you for that Dan. That BOGO deal was fabulous. Hey can we talk about some missile launchers over lunch, say next Tuesday.

      Delete
    3. Pfft neutral, yeah right. The cat will have to send some nice tasting beer your way for display. And the cat doesn't eat poo he throws it, and it's vile enough to stop even a nuke. Or the cat will just catch it with his rear and then fart it back out at you. See oh so easy.

      Delete
    4. Be careful Cat or the US will sanction Canada for your farts.

    2. It is a good gang here. And in my mind I have a map of where everyone lives in relation to my blog. I've toyed with the idea of drawing it out because it is like a street map with some people next door, some across the street, some down the road and some at the end of an alley (not saying who those are).

    4. The cats place is across the lake in my mind map. I take a boat to your place everyday.

    5. Well the cat likes some water so that works and as long as I have my bush with the tush, all is good.

  19. Just a tad over the top haha.... I'd heard about Dan. About him comparing blog awards with herpes and all to get his point across.

    P.S. Never stopped thinking about you and your hubby. Still keeping my fingers crossed for better times. You take good care now.

    You are a sweet guy and a open book, no doubt about that. I have my huge guard on, unless I know a person, they are walking on eggshells and anything could tick off.
    "I hung that 2 pesos dude out to dry"
    Dont bother about that 2 pesos guy, you just did what we all wanted to do, if you had replied jabberwacky in his next post, he would have come back to your same post and said "I want that guy killed"
    You are good entertainer and you have got your style, and genuinely caring and lovable, dont ever give up these qualities of yours.

    @Anne
    I would be on vacation and may be flickering in comments here and there, I dont know how much gold I am going to miss, will try to comeback and catch up. But would definitely tune in to see my sexy me :) No pressure, No pressure :)

  23. This is more a response to your recent comments than the post. It would be easier to just leave a comment here. You made it tough by having me choose something from DSM, but those are the figures I really enjoy. If I could paint, I would spend a lot of time and money with those things. Sadly I'm not much of a painter. I lack the patience, hand eye co-ordination, and delicate hands. I was able to narrow it down to three choices, and in the end I had to go with the Male Fallen Angel DSM7516. I guess it's just something I can relate to. If you're wondering my other two choices were the Male Vrykyl and the Dual Wielding Assassin. Let me know if you ever want to paint something but can't choose, and are willing to work on commission. If I had the money I'd probably be willing to pay for you to paint something for me and send it over.

    It'd be easier for me to just learn how to paint but I do know I really am that bad at it. I could never get the tiny details right, and would find it difficult even to just paint in layers.

    Anyway I've chatted long enough and stolen enough of your precious time. Once again, thank you very much for the kind words, and well, everything really. I'm sorry to hear what a past your son had, but I'm glad he has such a supportive mother.
