      Okay, home now. That was really weird..

      And we are having massive storms. I shut down for the day (er, week – I’m on vacation now) a 5:20 and didn’t leave for at least half an hour because of the rain and massive bolts of lightning that were entirely too close for comfort. Was cool to watch, though. Finally left and had to pull into a parking lot for about 10 minutes halfway home to wait for more rain. Finally got home at 7 and there was more rumbling and then after a little bit it poured some more.

    Wow! Happy M-anniversary (M the Roman numeral) Mike!

  3. Murray C. July 25, 2016 / 3:15 pm

    Wow, 1000 posts. I don’t know at what point I ” discovered” you here, Mike, but I’m so happy to spend time in your ” Cutetropolis” ( coming soon!)

    A thousand thank-you’s NTMTOM, A thousand whisker twitches; a thousand laughter stitches. If you raise your hands up high, I will give you armpit skritches.

    This place feels special and I’m ever so grateful to have been able to hang out here with you and all of your devotees. It’s a bright spot in every day to check in and see what’s what. I hope it’s all fun for you, too, and that it’s not feeling like ‘work’ to keep it going. Cuz I really want you to know how much all of your efforts are appreciated.

    Blessings upon the House of NTMTOM!

    Congrats Mike!
    We love you!
    Thank you!

    • Murray C. July 25, 2016 / 4:21 pm

      Bravo to all of you for heaping much-deserved praise on Mike’s site. Well done, well said.

      And, Mike, I’ve always wanted to ask you – are you conducting some kind of sociological experiment here???๐Ÿ˜

      • Faye July 25, 2016 / 4:25 pm

        I always feel like somebody’s watching me!

      • debg July 25, 2016 / 4:25 pm

        I don’t think I want to know the answer to your question, Murray.

  8. Joy July 25, 2016 / 4:42 pm

    Congrats NTMTOM! The site is awesome!

  9. jerzowa July 25, 2016 / 4:43 pm

    How time flies! Thank you for every single post of this thousand. Here’s to the thousands to come!

  10. Starfish July 25, 2016 / 5:04 pm

    Congrats on a thousand, oh wonderful Mike.
    So many posts full of stuff that we like.
    With cute puppies and quokkas and cats like Maru.
    All with great stories that make us laugh too.
    After Cute Overload some thought you were done.
    But with your own place we can keep up the fun.
    We come by every day to have a look.
    But some of us are still waiting on that coffee table book…

      Heck with the quokka, where’s my NTMTOM CTB*?

    Congratulations, Mike! Thank you for bringing us all on this journey of laughter. I look forward to reading your posts every single day.

    Hoping for at least 1,000 more.

    Wow, 1000 posts already? Time sure flies when you’re having fun! I’ve been here since the very beginning, I think, and it just doesn’t seem possible that it’s been that many posts!

    And yet of those 1000 posts, I suspect I am not alone in having gotten FAR more than 1000 moments of entertainment, laughter, awws, support, head-scratching, and pure silliness! You have such a gift — thank you for listening to those of us who begged you at the end of the Old Ranch to strike out on your own! We can never thank you enough! (Although I’m sure thanks in the tip jar never go unappreciated. :D)

    • allein ๐ŸŒผ July 25, 2016 / 7:46 pm

      and it just doesnโ€™t seem possible that itโ€™s been that many posts!

      I was thinking the same thing. So I did a little math. If I’m not mistaken, the site started in November, so that’s approximately nine months, which gives us an average of somewhere around 3 posts a day. They sure do add up!

  14. Em July 25, 2016 / 6:08 pm

    Thank you!

  15. 6rabbits July 25, 2016 / 7:08 pm

    Congrats, NTMTOM! Keep up the outstanding work!

  16. JenDeyan July 25, 2016 / 7:15 pm

    I must join in the congratulations. And many, many more! Keep ’em coming!

  17. tara July 25, 2016 / 8:05 pm

    Wow! 1000 posts – time flies when you’re having fun! A thousand thank-yous Mike for all of the cute and fun and laughs and joy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. AB July 25, 2016 / 8:09 pm

    May there be many more!

  19. dubravkamcvmd July 25, 2016 / 8:13 pm

    One thousand! Amazing! I’ve been here for all of them and urged you to start. The consistent quality has been so wonderful. We all thought you were great, and you are! Thanks!

  20. Gigi_the cat lady July 25, 2016 / 8:15 pm

    Congratulation NTMTOM! Your site makes a lot of people happy and gives us joy so …

    • TrixAndSam July 25, 2016 / 11:48 pm

      Perfect post for the occasion

  21. BB/VA July 25, 2016 / 8:43 pm

    A thousand thanks to NTMTOM, poet laureate of teh cute!

  22. SAA1451 July 25, 2016 / 10:20 pm

    Thank you so much for creating this safe, happy place.
    Your with and humor brighten every day.
    You lead by example and have created a kind, and gentle site that is joyful and has an incredible sense of community.

    Congratulations on 1000 posts!

  23. fkaWaldenPond July 25, 2016 / 10:41 pm

    Congratulations Sir! Thank you for guiding this โ€˜merry band of misfitsโ€™ with cornball laughs, giggles, full out belly roars, awwws, nose-boops, neatos, wows, snerts and hard core cute through these last 9 months. I couldnโ€™t have done it half as well, (and certain awful, sad days) without you. May good fortune, kindness, street-smarts and wisdom blanket you. I hearty cheer, huzzah and cap thrown to the next 1000!

    I’m a little late to the party, but congratulations NTMTOM! We sure are grateful for your site and the community you’ve built up here. And thanks to the posters – nary a troll among them – only good, kind-hearted people who make your site an even more pleasant place to visit! Mwah* to you all!!

  26. Flowerfanatic July 26, 2016 / 1:02 pm

    SHEESH. how did I miss this yesterday when it posted!! Glad I found it today, though. Heaps of ‘thank yous’ Mike for coming to the rescue when we thought for sure we would never see the likes of CO again. I’ve been here since the beginning and enjoy every time I see a message from you. I think all of us look forward to another day and more delightful comments on the posts. There are some mighty creative/crafty/cunning posters in the group.

    • allein ๐ŸŒผ July 26, 2016 / 1:10 pm

      I have to admit, I sometimes rack my brain for something to comment on, just so I can subscribe and make sure I don’t miss any good comments. (I also get an email for new posts, so I don’t even have to make a point of coming here to check. It all comes to me!)

      (Also, it took me a little while to get the “grand” joke in the title. ๐Ÿ˜ณ)

      • Murray C. July 26, 2016 / 1:19 pm

        Allein, I do the same thing, so often just use an emoji when I’m not feeling like using words. (THOSE things!)

        • allein ๐ŸŒผ July 26, 2016 / 1:25 pm

          Same reason I often post pictures.

        • 6rabbits July 26, 2016 / 6:17 pm

          Emojis are soo useful in that way!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

      • 6rabbits July 26, 2016 / 6:16 pm

        Allein, until you mentioned it I didn’t even realize there WAS a joke in the title! Sheesh!๐Ÿ˜‹
        I also search for things to say so I can get notified of new comments. So many are amusing and informative and I don’t want to miss a one!๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. Ed September 18, 2016 / 5:04 am

    Mike, can you remove a down vote? I mistakenly down-voted this.

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike September 18, 2016 / 8:21 am

      Sorry, I’m not sure where those votes “live” inside the database, so I can’t change them. Not the end of the world though. Downvotes only make me nervous when they get into double digits.
