SYLG’s Fifth Blogiversary!

By Wyatt Earp | June 6, 2010

Five years ago today, Support Your Local Gunfighter smashed into the blogosphere like a meth head into a doctor’s office. Unfortunately, I am still looking for the Xanax and the occasional post idea.

I chose June 6 as the debut date because of its significance in world history. I did not look to “share” D-Day with the world, but I did want to use every blogiversary as a reminder of the sacrifice offered by better people than I . . .

So, what else happened on June 6, 2005? A county judge awarded the Washington governorship to Christine Gregoire. Apple announced they would change their processors from IBM to Intel. And apparently, the debut of this blog killed Anne Bancroft:

Yeah, sorry about that . . .

This blog never suffered in the quality control department. The first post was just as bad as this one, and I am nothing if not consistent. What was not consistent, though, was the reader input. The blog went from 10 visits a day to almost 1,000, and it went from one comment in the first post to 20 or more in some posts now.

That’s not a testament to me, it’s a testament to all of you. Thank you for your interest, your suggestions, and your comments. Without you, I would have quit a long time ago.

    Sandra Bullock just elected to “The troops choice award” June 6th 2010. Please, don’t kill her too.

    Congratulations on the big oh-five, Wyatt.

    I think all my blog has killed is any memories of Tim Thomas winning the Vezina Trophy.

    Sully – You’re welcome. It’s for me as much as for you.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Thanks for reading, and making the occasional kickass photoshop for me.

    Aunt Noreen – She’s 30 now, right? God help us all.

    Jon – Sandra has larger problems than me, believe it.

    Danny – Smoking hot back in the day.

    Proof – Can’t believe I lasted this long.

    Captain – I never knew she was married to Mel Brooks! Funny guys get the babes.

    Fenway_Nation – But hopefully, not the Celtics’ chances.

    Congrats, Wyatt, on the 5th anniversary. Does that mean you will be opening a 5th?

    And on a very happy note, I just read over at Fox News that another old fossil, Helen Thomas, has retired. Coincidence?

    Best wishes for another five-to ten (in judge-speak).
