    Dear Godfather of Blog, 

    I am sorry to read that you received grumpy mail. I think your response to the mean guy’s mail was powerful, fair-minded, and generally typo-free.

    Jealousy is a bitter, twisted thing. I should know. People are jealous of me all the time. They just don’t know it yet. No, really.

    I’d like to invite you to a celebration, a celebration of the 100th visitor to my site.

    Your blog is in inspiration, one of the main reasons I started my own blog some seven years ago.

    In my league of heroes you are right up there with Doug Henning and Ivan Putski. That’s rare company, my bro.

    Please come visit utterwonder.com and leave a favorite memory or monetary gift.

    Keep up the good work!

    Your friend and fan,

    c monks

    dear c,

    your words mean a lot to me.

    i cannot believe that in seven years on the web you’ve only gotten 100 hits.

    i appreciate the high place of honor that you put me into between mr. henning and mr. putski (pictured.)

    you’ve also sparked an idea that i think i will start doing from now on, and that is to link one person after or during each new post.

    i love being linked, im sure everyone feels the same way.

    anyhow, give my best to the missus, and i hope this thursday is a good one for you.

    best regards,
