Someone has to show me how to make those cute “picture” words.

lillycoyote's avatar

Congratulations and felicitations on your achievement my friend!! I got you this boathouse on Loon Lake as a token of your achievement. Don’t worry, it may look like it’s still for sale but I’ve closed on the property. They just haven’t removed the listing from their website.

MissAnthrope's avatar

Woohoo! Congrats on your achievement!

janbb's avatar

It’s going to take me bit to work up my responses. Wow.

wilma's avatar

Congratulations to one of my favorite farm boys!
He helped me figure out why cows have 4 teats.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Crap. Just missed it.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@JilltheTooth I an honored that you hosted my party. I know if I need a little wisdom in my life, I can turn to you. And if I need a litle humor and fun, I can turn to you. That’s a pretty nice combo. Keep your chin always up so you feel the sun on your face. Thanks.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb I would be honored to Mazel with you.You’re one of the sharpest jellies I have been privileged to fluther with. And you cut me a lot of slack when I get out of line.:)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@SpatzieLover Thank you.I know I can always count on you for a wise word and a well turned phrase. Thank you.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@mangeons Thank you. Keep up the good work. You make your mom very proud and you’ll find over time family life, done well is pretty special.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@picante Thank you. I was thinking exactly the same thing about you. You always make me smile. And there is nothing in life more important than that ability. Bring on the hot sauce!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@KatawaGrey Thank you.You were one of the first new jellies I stumbled upon and I remember thinking what a wise woman this is. It took your mom to show me why that was. Congrats on your 20K.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Lightlyseared Thank you If I need a kind word or a pick me up you always deliver.

Ayesha's avatar

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@smilingheart1 Thank you. Wow, you’ve only been here a short time and you’ve almost hit 5K. A lot of wisdom in a little time.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@laineybug Thank you. You carry on the theme. A lot of wisdom in a short time. I’m always impressed with the maturity in your answers. Keep it up. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@YARNLADY Thank you.You don’t amaze me with your wise answers, but that’s because I always expect them.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@rebbel I love your perspective on things. Plus anyone that is willing to try to understand politics in the US is showing some true cahones. (I’ll have to check the spelling on that)

JilltheTooth's avatar

Holy cow, Fella, are you going for 30 on your 20K thread? I’ll get the next party ready to go! ;-D

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@JilltheTooth Hey these guys have been good to me. It’s my way of paying it back. Plus they’re all maxxed out on me.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Just wanted to see if you were still paying attention! ;-P

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I had a rather nice distraction, but I’m back now.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Brian1946 Thank you. I can always count on you for a chuckle, more likely a LMAO moment.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@augustlan Thank you For the direction of the site, which is so much better than anything else out there, but also for your wisdom and advice.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@EnchantingEla Thank you. Also continuing the theme of a lot of wisdom in a short time. You haven’t been here for long but you’ve impressed me!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Oh man. I can’t think of anything that brings polishing to my mind faster.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@syz Thank you. Our resident animal expert and sage.

mazingerz88's avatar

WOW OH WOW, can’t believe I came late to this party of parties! Darn it, the world is so cruel when you’re a drunks, err a drunk! I hate you Jim Beam! I curse the day when you got distilled! I haaate youuu! < Hic >

Well…better late than never! CONGRATS on your 20K!, oh one whose name is so freakin hard to say! LOL. I mean there was this cop who pulled me over and tested my alcohol level by asking me to repeat “Adirondackwannabe” ten times while hopping on one leg. What the f*#@K?

Ok, I’m outta here. I need to get some polishing.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Kayak8 Thank you. Another in the long line of voices of reason and wisdom. Plus I love German Shepards. Magnificent dogs.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@harple Thank you. Hope everything turns out for the best for you. You deserve it.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf Thank you. You are one of the kindest, gentlest souls I have ever met. It’ll work out for you guys, hang in there.
Oh, and quit the cigs. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@chyna Thank you My favorite product of West Virginia. I don’t like that our schedules don’t work out so well, but I hope the paychecks keep coming. Pulling for you lady.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Kayak8 No double dipping! But thanks :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@marinelife Thank you. You always can be counted on for wise and wonderful counsel. And I look at the lurve and think Holy Crap.:)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Thank you. I’ve learned so much from you and you have made me take a look at my perspectives.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@bkcunningham Thank you. I always appreciate your view on things.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Thank you. I love twisting your tail, almost as much as I like it when you pay me back. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Blackberry Thank you. My favorite military man. I would like nothing better than to share a few beers with you around a nice fire some evening and shoot the shit with you.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Thank you. My favorite man of the words. You can turn a phrase better than anyone I know.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@FutureMemory Thank you. Your comments always have a little bite to them.:)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@tedibear Thank you. I appreciate your views a lot. And I still have the picture. Just can’t figure out how to send it without it getting mangled.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Judi Thank you. You’re a pleasant voice of reason every time.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Symbeline Thank you. You still fascinate me and scare the hell out of me at the same time. If I had the chance I’d like to lay outside at night on a moonlit evening and share ghost stories with you.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@worriedguy Thank you. You have forever changed the way I look at brie.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@dappled_leaves Thank you. Always liked your appreciation of nature.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@filmfann Thank you You’re a true man of reason and integrity.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Bellatrix Thank you. Another of my favs from Down Under. I have been shirking my hug duty. I’ll try to do better.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@tinyfaery Thank you. You are a true original, and I admire how true you are to yourself, if that makes any sense.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@EmptyNest Thank you, from one Empire Stater to another. Only some one that’s spent time here can understand the place.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

And I enjoy paying you back for twisting my tail. It makes it more fun that you play along! (((HUGS))) and >>>KISSES<<< and lurve, lurve, lurve to you honey!!!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Zensky was next but he’ll have to wait. Thanks you make my day every time. Your hubby hit the jackpot big time.:)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

D’awwwwwww, you say the sweetest things! <3

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate I like doing it, and I get it back many times over. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@zensky Thank you. You’re our source of wisdom from the Middle East, and I always value your view.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@lillycoyote Thank you. The boathouse was amazing. I love Loon Lake. Those pictures made my day.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@MissAnthrope Thank you. Your one of the most real people I know. And I like how you’ll call my ass out if you feel I’m out of line. Keeps me grounded. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb @JilltheTooth No double dipping for you either.But thanks

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@mazingerz88 Thank you. Yup, always going to be thinking about polish because of you.

harple's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe aw shucks, thank you. :-)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@harple Your welcome. Smiles are infectious.:)

rebbel's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe “Plus anyone that is willing to try to understand politics in the US is showing some true cahones.”
Try being the key word there :-)
Thanks!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@rebbel I started trying to answer that question and got nowhere. I live here and I can’t explain it.

rebbel's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Same here (for the Dutch situation), but I was taken care of by some other Jellies and they did a good job.

gailcalled's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe: Milo here: In honor of this day, I have been appointed your official guide for the hikes up all of the 46 Adirondack HIgh Peaks. Redeemable any time (just strap the skins on your skis if you want to start soon.)

If this seems too formidable, I will also happily escort you and a companion of your choice up Mt. Jo with a picnic at the top. (Free parking at Adirondak Loj.)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@gailcalled Thanks Milo. I’d be honored to have you and Gail take me anywhere in the Park. Just don’t suggest a swim this time of the year.Thank you.

Symbeline's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Sharing ghost stories is something I really like doing. That was in my late teens mostly, now I can’t find anyone to do it with. Everyone always just wants to play cards. I’d totally tell ghost stories with you. :)

Kardamom's avatar

Instead of going to the mansion, I’ve arranged to fly you and all of the other Jellies out to California to spend the weekend feasting in the dining room of the Ahwahnee Hotel at Yosemite

I am in charge of the menu, but if any of the other Jellies want to help and give me some suggestions I’m sure Addy would love it.

For appetizers I’m going to serve something like a salad with pepperoncinis and mixed Greek olives, but with the addition of Pickled Red Onions with Lime and Marinated Shiitake Mushrooms and Lemon Marinated Baby Mozzarella Balls

And since we are in California, I was able to find some fresh peas to make this yummy Fresh Pea Salad with Dates, Serrano Chile and Pumpkin Seeds

Of course we’ll want some soup, so how about this Wheatberry,Garlic, Kale, Shiitake Mushroom and Peas Soup?

I have to ask you one question, though How do you like your nuts? Hopefully you will approve of These Nuts

For one of the entrees I’ve chosen Vegetarian Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas and Vegetarian Spanish Rice with a side of homemade Hopi Blue Corn Tortillas and Tomatillo Salsa

After the Sundried Tomatoes Demonstration I will be making a Sundried Tomato, Mushroom and Asparagus Tart

I thought I’d do a slightly different take on stir fried tofu, so I’m making Thai Marinated Tofu Skewers with Peanut Butter and Coconut Milk and serving that along side of Ginger Almond Rice Noodles with Pineapple

And just for the heck of it, we’re all going to wear lilac colored shirts with green plaid boxers!

Enjoy friend : )

AmWiser's avatar

I’ve never been so late to a party ….Sigh!
But moocho congratulations @Adirondackwannabe . So well deserved…I enjoy your posts.:-)

gailcalled's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe: MIlo here; Even I can barely get into the water in high summer. On a broiling hot day, when the water reaches 68˚, it is hard to actually move my legs and legs. Of course, I understand that by comparison, Mirror Lake is a tepid bath.

(Love that boathouse on Loon Lake…a steal at $995,000, I say.)

Coloma's avatar

DUDE! I love you!

You’re one of the backbones of, well, never mind, Jellyfish don’t have backbones..BUT..you are full of easy going good humor and always comport yourself with dignity and aplomb.

Cheers!

jazmina88's avatar

One great guy and jelly you are!! Congrats!!!!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Symbeline Thank you, I now have a bucketlist. Ghost stories with you sounds like a great goal. Thanks

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Kardamom Thank you. Where do you get em all. Not that I’m complaining. You’re amazing.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@AmWiser Thank you. Don’t sweat it. I’m just very glad you made it! Always good to hear from you.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@jazmina88 Thank you. It’s always a pleasure to see you. Another fellow animal lover, can’t beat that.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@gailcalled You swam by the spring inlet. Brrrr. I can only do Mirror, I’m a wuss when it comes to cold water.

gailcalled's avatar

The water by my former camp was very deep (400 feet in places), very clean and very cold.

We ran a pipe and a pump out about 50 feel; that was our water source, including drinking (the town tested it every year).

But. yes, it was arctic even at high summer.

KateTheGreat's avatar

Oh goodness gracious I am late!

I’d like to congratulate you on 20k! I love to see your responses and you’re one of a kind. What an amazing man you are! :)

blueiiznh's avatar

Oh this party is still going strong

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@KateTheGreat You can be late anytime, it’s still great to see you and your responses. I just figured you were off asking Another Question Of The Day. :)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@blueiiznh We don’t screw around when we party.

blueiiznh's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I know. My statement was a glad confirmation!!!!

Ela's avatar

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@EnchantingEla Oh shit. That thought just went through my head too. I’m thinking oh crap, she showed up fairly early didn’t she. Well, the memory is the first thing to go before they put people in the home.

Ela's avatar

psht! No worries. I know I’m Unforgettable ; )

Kardamom's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Don’t worry bubula, we’re not gonna put you in a home, you’re moving in with Ma and me in Boca!
