Celebrating a Milestone with Friends and a Car Ride

Milestone at the blog and friends

What the… Milestone?! Photo via Wikimedia Commons

Woot!Β I am saying a big thank you to you for the milestone I noticedΒ here yesterday. Poetic Parfait reached 1,500 followers!

Woohoo!

At this point it’s at 1,507! Thank you to every one of you who follow me here (but not in a stalking following way of course). πŸ™‚

I appreciate you all! To celebrate the milestone, I thought it would be fun to go for a ride. You know, get out and celebrate with friends. So, I’m heading to my car now. Why not come along?

Sunny day and celebrations with friends

Wow, it’s sunny here in Victoria and we’re going to need some sunglasses. I bet Mark would be a great one to ask where he got his shades. I’ll swing by his place after I pick up Aquileana. I had heard she was having an in-depth discussion with Zeus about a Yeats poem so I am sure she wants to take a break from that and have some fun!

Hi Aquileana! Oh yes, get in the car and we’ll pick up Mark. He’s just around the corner from here. I heard he’s hanging out with Shehanne too, so that’s cool! We have room in the back seats.

Ringing phone when with friends

Phone is ringing… Who is it?

Everyone strapped in? Good. Uh oh my cell phone is ringing. OH! Haha it’s Shehanne’s hamstahs phoning me to tell me I forgot to pick them up too – better turn around and go back! What, someone’s on the other phone line? I better get that, just in case. YES, it’s ladysighs asking me to take five to visit her. Will do! You all know ladysighs too, right?

UmmmmΒ wait, which road do I take here? It seems likeΒ there’s this one road not taken, as per the ultimate Robert Frost fan Michael. Maybe I better take that other road then, because it gives us longer to talk about books once I pick up Michelle. Yep, sounds good!

Oh dear, I do wish I had more space in the Immense Universe of my car, right Doda? That’s okay, maybe we better get out of the car anyway. We can walk and burn off some calories before we have some ice cream sandwiches. YES, Raymond came through for us and got a new box of them! What a nice treat πŸ™‚

Ice cream and friends and blog milestone

Yum, let’s have a treat. Ice cream sandwich!

By the way, we wanted to meet TeaganΒ andΒ the woman in trousers too, but they’re busy with the next episode! This is quite the day with a milestone, friends, a sunny day, a drive, and ice cream sandwiches!

NOTE:Β Ahahaha! There were too many people to mention so I want to do another installment about another car ride. If I didn’t mention you today it’s because we got tired and ate ice cream sandwiches (busted!) but I will see you on the next ride, okay?! I send love to you all as I value you so much xo

Psssttttt…. What do you want to do next??

    You always make me feel welcome and relaxed. I hope to follow your trip and enjoy the ride, too. Mark is the only one I have on my Reader, along with following you since a few days ago. I am blessed with many followers (over 1200) but not as many as you have. I am so glad you have this great bunch of people to enjoy and get to know along the bumpy ride, fasten your seat belt, Christy! Smiles!

    1,500? I’m sooo jealous. I’m waiting to reach 100 . . . 😦

    But there is ONE consolation. Someone taught me how to do this . . . ❀ .

    Hee Hee . . . thanks C.B.

    Christy, congratulation on the milestone! Love your clever celebration car trip and taking along blogger friends. Well, maybe next a stop for coffee and donuts or tea and crumpets would be a nice outing. And some place with outside seating in the sun! And maybe overlooking a lake or the ocean. Plus some surround sound music. And lots of bright colorful flowers in ceramic pots. I think I’ve gone serial thinking…like the last person you wanted to meet…Teagan! Enjoy celebrating your success! Christine

    sounds a lot like Jerry Seinfeld’s “Riding in cars with comedians”…. well done – told ‘ya a few years back to exploit where you live, it’s so beautiful and everyone knows about it and wants to see it… great mixture!

    We’d meet you along the way, Christy… But I’m having real life car trouble, or maybe I should say dealer trouble because they won’t fix it! Hugs for the lovely whimsical mention πŸ™‚

    Christy… congratulations on yet another milestone of many to come. Loved the car ride but it did get a little crowded but the ice cream sandwiches were wonderful.
    Looking for another adventure, my vote is for doing the West Coast Trail. A great place to find out what we are all made of…. smiles to anyone who has endured the gruelling terrain, pack light as it is not for the fainthearted.

    Hugs as always

        I’m waiting for the next ones to come (and secretly wishing to be in one! heheh!)
        I had a lot going on lately and hence the delay in visiting everyone’s blog and reading their posts! Finally trying to catch up slowly with all the posts I missed!
        I hope you’re having a great week! ❀
        XOXO!

    WOW, Congrats Christy! And as a reward for your followers…you took us on a ‘Magical Mystery Ride’. I am sure I spotted your group at our local Dairy Queen. Ice Cream in one hand and poetry books in the other. Awesome, maybe next time…we can all meet in a local park and have a picnic with ‘poetic’ conversation. LOL.
