While away in Montana it appears that a momentous occasion came and passed without my comment. Not that my comment is required, but on this occasion I really wanted to comment. It seems Hill Country of Monroe County Mississippi passed out of the blogling stage and into full maturity with one year of publication.

So to its author, Terry Thornton, I just wanted to say congratulations and well done. I would also like to proclaim Terry the recipient of a few medals, just a few.

1. A medal for truly engaging writing.
2. A medal for southern charm.
3. A medal for your easy off-handed sense of humor.
4. A medal for great research.
5. A medal for being a contributing member of our community.
6. A medal for being a good friend and saying "yes" when I asked.
7. A medal for getting me to admit to being a HOGS blogger (will Nordstrom ever let me back in the store?).
8. A medal for your willingness to share - always.
9. A medal for your poetry (notice I didn't say good poetry).
10. And yes, a medal for always citing your sources.

I really don't remember your not being here from the beginning. You and Hill Country have always been a perfect fit with this group of geneaBloggers.

So Terry, here's to years and years of Hill Country yet to come. What will you think of next?

MAVEN, What can I say? Just to say "thanks" is not enough --- so let me shout it, THANKS! You are too kind to award me so many medals that I can't possibly keep track of them all (but I'll try). LOL!

Thanks to Chery who called this post to my attention --- somehow it had escaped me completely until just now.

I'm flattered to be in the company of all the Genea-Bloggers. That some of you would agree to start calling what you do HOGS Blogging is icing on the cake. Thanks.
