I just noticed that I made 999 comments - I admit that is a very small number in comparison to some of you out there.
But for me it is something special - each comment takes a little more time because sometimes I have to look up words or expressions in the wordbook (I learned English at school but I'm out of practice)

So being on the edge of my 1000th comment I had the idea that the first one to volunteer in this thread might get this particular comment.

Now it is 1 am where I live and I'm going to bed, but hopefully tomorrow when I get up I'll write my comment #1000 to ????

ME! I'd be thrilled! You are a great commenter.

Drat! Well, if Bear's pictures somehow disappear overnight, then ME!

You beat me to it, Bear. I'd have been thrilled, too.

And I must say that your written English is excellent, Barbara. I learned French as an adult and ended up teaching it for 20 years and I know how long it took me to write anything for a native speaker audience. I applaud you.

Edited to add: I just see that I was comment 999 and I love it, both the comment and the fact that you felt moved to make it. Thank you. Another comment from you just now would seem kind of . . . well, . . . piggish, I think :)

Actually, in the last few days... you gave me a comment that made my month.

So... Here's to a thousand more... IF one of them is as meaningful to someone as that comment was to me.

No, no, no, no...... it should be MEEEEEEEE!!!

I was born in Germany, grew up there, and didn't have to actually speak English until I was 20.

So see...... is that entitlement, or what? Ha!

I am also the happy recipient of Barbara's comments before the volunteer's act. A delight.

Oh, thank you so much for your nice words and feedback - what a motivation to go on!

Yes I've been commenting quite a bit in the last few hours, it's a grey Sunday without any obligations or appointments so I really enjoy to have time to browse through several portfolios.
Thank you for the commenters bling, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lydia!
