[B-Day] I wanna retire ...

from posting the B-Day greetings. I have been doing them since April, 2001 and I feel that now may be the time to let someone else in on the fun.

I don't need a gold watch or a lifetime pass to the cafeteria, all I need is a volunteer to take it over. I'll even supply my formatting if that is what the volunteer would like to start out using.

I ain't goin nowhere. When I sit at the puter in the morning and think "I hope there ain't no birthdays today". I figure It's time to give it up.

I agree with you, Howie. That would certainly be a sign.

Thank you for all those years you faithfully remembered our birthdays. It has been much appreciated, but it shouldn't be something anyone is required to do.

If someone wants to take it on, they will. If not, that's ok. We seem to know how to fill the topic slots and keep things interesting around here.

So it's become your own version of Groundhog Day?
Just remember Bill Murray actually had a happy ending.

2001? Time flies dude.Thanks for all of your many years volunteering.

Howie, thanks for your perserverance and kindness posting them. Sometimes we feel blue and think "nobody loves me" and other silly stuff, and when we get the happy birthday wishes we feel better, but you've don't way beyond your share. Bless you!

I can't see exactly when you started with the Helix birthday greetings, Howie. Looks like it must have been from pretty much when Helix started here, right? And at some point you also took over name days, too, until we decided that was a bit much a couple of years ago, maybe?

Will we get more groundchuck updates now?

Thanks, Howie, for all of your years of birthday greetings!

If potential volunteers are daunted by the responsibility of taking on so many birthday greetings, maybe a team of monthly rotating birthday greeters could be recruited? (OK, Giz, now I'm waiting for a picture of whirling dervish birthday volunteers ... ... )

Or perhaps we could do one Birthday thread a week and get everyone at once?

Okay, if it's ok with everyone, I'll do the birthday posts. It's academic anyway since I already did today's.

I just want to echo everyone Else's thoughts & thank howieh See Profile for his dedication to Birthday wishing! I hope that I can do as well as he. Besides, it's about time he got a birthday post of his own!

Thanks for taking it over, Santa Fe, how fine of you to do it. The last few months that I did stats I messed up because it wasn't daily or on a set schedule, and at the time I didn't have a portable computer so whenever I was away I couldn't easily do it. Bless you, SF!

Will we get more groundchuck updates now?

This is the 1st B-Day post that I could locate: »It's Neon Slide's Birthday

Here is the 1st N-Day: »Happy Name Day Fyndhorn-Kroog

I went back through some IM's and it looks like we discontinued name days in the 1st week of January, 2012.

Groundchuck update: The 5 groundchucks from my yard, mama, papa and 3 chucklets, all went awol about 3 weeks ago. As of yesterday, it looks like papa has returned (I'm not going to try to catch him and roll him over to verify ).

So, since 2001-Apr-24 for the birthdays and 2001-Aug for name days. What a trooper you are!

I owe you an apology. I promised to send an IM HBD with a link to each post, then watch to see if the individual even responds in the topic. If not, I was going to eliminate them from the list. No offense intended toward those who didn't reply. It's just that people move on with interweb interests and I wanted to decrease your workload. I know it had to be dreary after so much time.

Then I started visiting the hospital and working on rehab, so I let you down, didn't keep my promise. I am so sorry, Howie. Please accept my apology.

There is absolutely no need to apologize. Just the fact that you trimmed the list as much as you did made me a happy poster.
