Happy Anniversary Just Blowing Smoke

Isn't typical that a man will forget anniversaries? Why they even have a cell phone commercial popularizing this fact these days. I find it amazing though, that the fourth anniversary of "Just Blowing Smoke" managed to slip past without my notice. 

The fact that this particular form of madness has been going on now since June 14, 2007 is almost as amazing to me as my own lack of recollection concerning it. (Of course, there are days when I desperately try to forget that I'm to blame for it, but that's a tale for another day.) I am likewise fast approaching another milestone, that of having written 750 posts (and quick little posts like this one will make that come even sooner)

With all of the smoke that I have blown in the last four years, it's a wonder that I don't have Al Gore sitting on my doorstep trying to tell sell me carbon credits; or the EPA attempting to shut me down for the pollution that I've caused in the intervening period. 

While blogging is in most cases a selfish habit, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have chosen to share this sometimes rather twisted journey with me. While often enjoying a fine cigar while doing so, I hope to continue trying to entertain and enlighten (in my own small way) those who continue to read and participate in what sometimes seems little more than a never-ending stream of absurdity, bombast, and drivel. I would say more, but I'm suddenly feeling in the mood to celebrate. So in honor of this occasion, I can say only one thing:

deatach dóibh má tá tú bhí orthu (smoke 'em if you've got 'em)

Sir Timothy,
What's this you're sayin'? You have a fog, er I mean smog, uh er I mean blog? I did not know that. Are you sure you're not just blowing smoke? Oh, that's right, you are.
It's been a good run thus far. Happy anniversary from the left to the right.
Let's ride.

Mi Amigo,

While I have often been benighted, I have never been knighted. From right to left ... thanks.

Wherever there is injustice, you will find us.
Wherever there is suffering, we'll be there.
Wherever liberty is threatened, you will find...
The Three Amigos!
