Our Sincere Thanks to All my Friends -- We Want to Share this Award!


We don't even know what to write Gee! Josh buddy can you hint me..? Is 2:32 a.m. of course he is already 'limericking' wrapped up around a dream... or a nightmare...?

Thanks for the Hubbie award, and actually we never expected this .... Come on Billy buc..? Can you help me to write better words of appreciation? Well is 2:35 a.m. So I guess Billy is already catching up with a rewarding rest. Congrats to you Billy and also to you fun bachelor Josh...!

"I want to thank the Academy...!"

No! Maria Jordan and Rustic living already used that strategy! Nobody in here to help me write a better thankful note..? Is 2:38 a.m. already. Not even this darn curiosity Mars Rover sent me a #ffriday tweet or RT? Where is ChristyWrites to give me a hand @Birmingham

Best Community Activist?

I guess it was after we caught 'Big E' with its pants down, literally. Sorry moderator bot, don't flag me on this one. Just think I said, "we caught Big E with its cans down." I'm not suppose to reveal more but, behind our action there was a small army of hubbers that came to us with ideas and a deep cry. We wanted to take quick action in the name of righteousness. That's why we invited Tom Cruise to join us in the crusade, but he declined, due to filming scheduling. We put a face to this action and we took the lead. Now you see why, we hubbers, are one of a kind. Back to the award: We are short of words, where is Janine Huldie to help us? Is already 2:50 a.m.!

We thank you from the bottom of our accolades, we meant to say, 'our hearts'....Gee! The thing is... it sounds too cliche, you know? What are you laughing at Lathing?

We take the hubbie award with one condition though; we want to share it with all the hubbers that believe in HubPages as a second home. With hubbers that gave us their support along with the votes.... I thought I ran out of words... We guess, our muses just woke up!

"Who is that winged buddy behind us? Don't get scared Tammy!"


Why Are we Here?

Just luck, fate, empathy.... and the need to write. Who gave us these quick words? We congratulate the winners and have some homework to do. Check the best hub and other hubbers that won. Yeah AEvans....we are not in Iowa anymore! We think we all won this award. We are a solid community and the world is watching.... even Obama and his wife. Thanks Dexter Yarbrough for the laugh. I want to mention Billy, Curiad, Brother Cloud Explorer Mike, and others that we cannot remember! Gee is 3:06 a.m.! We are joining forces to make a difference against evilness. Just one thing, behind Lord, there is more than just a name. We never intended to write this long... Our spirit is free, and we want to connect with our colleagues. We want to thank you all for what they did for us: Martie Coetser, Debbie Brooks, Victoria Lynn and Gizmo, Nell Rose, Ardie, Faith Reaper, Tammy, Effer, Linda, Kelley Ward, Julie DeNeen, Epigramman and miss Tiiffy, Kenny Vincent Moore, alocsin (we can borrow some money if he ever gets rich.) Thanks so much to so many of you dear friends. Yeah you too Dwachira, TillsonTitan Mary, Rubi 'always exploring,' Rasma Gypsy Rose Lee, Mary 615, Pamela99, Go for the Juggler, Cogerson, Sunnie day, Miss Olive, Homesteadbound, Just ask Susan, Sharyn Slant, Susan Holland, Cclitgirl, Lucky Cats, Carlie Sullen, Crazed Novelist, The Lyricwriter, Ron Hawster, KDuBarry, pennyofheaven, SuzyHQ, Laurinzo Scott, Purvis Bobbi44, suzette Naples, Docmo, Vellur, Movie Master Lesley, Melchi, Tonipet, Funny KJfORCE, JoanVeronica, Anupma, Cardisa, Marcie Goodfleisch, Patty Inglish, Paul and HP clan..and so many more....come on peeps!! is 3:24 a.m. Not even the Secret Service is up this late!

We hope another hubber gets this award next time. Once is enough! We don't like much publicity, and we are just as normal as any other person... Thanks so much!

Lord De Cross

Good Morning, Lord. Knowing you reminds me of Forest Gump: "You just never know what you're gonna get" when I open one of your Hubs. It could be a beautiful sensitive poem, it could be some very deep subject that I can't begin to understand, and on and on. You are never boring, that's for sure! You are truly a genius (but you knew that, didn't you?)

Thanks for being my dear and loyal friend here on HubPages. You really deserve more than one award! Congrats from one who loves you and appreciates you.

Whew, that's the longest fan letter I've written in quite a while.

Love, Mary

Melch-izedek, thanks for the feel good congratulations! We were caught by surprise. But we take this award in the name of so many, that were here with us shoulder to shoulder. Have a good one!

@Martie Coetser, sometimes we feel like we don't deserve it, but we wouldn't be as pessimistic as Marlon Brando and deny the trophy. Thanks South Africa!

@Lathing! Cheeky commenting? You always have the biggest smile for sure!! We keep a low profile at times, but we are around all the time! Addiction caught up with us long time ago!

LORD, LORD, LORD, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I was so busy loving on you on marcoujor's hub and the interview being published, this one slipped by me. PLEASE FORGIVE ME!!! You know I love you. As I was telling marcoujor, that you are my Hero here on Hub Pages, as you were one of the very first hubbers to comment when I first published a hub on Hub Pages and you have continued to be so encouraging. If you had not done that, I probably would not be here today. Then when I found out right after joining Hub Pages in April, that one of my very first poems was stolen by those creeps at BigEzine (or whatever) and I did not have a clue what to do, so I just started whinning about it on hubs and asking what should I do, and then you, my hero, just jumped on that problem so fast, you are like the James Bond of the Hub Pages, and shut them down!!! Awesome. You are one of the most versatile hubbers I have read. You are hilarious one moment, then dead serious the next. You do love your Hub community and we all appreciate you for who you are here on Hub Pages. Hub Pages would not be the same without you. HUGS, HUGS, HUGS God bless you always. As you may have noticed, the only time I am able to make comments is early in the mornings before I go to work, or in the evenings when I get home, after an hour drive. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Oh, P.S. when I had been away from Hub Pages, lord send me a private email just to check on me, and I told him of the large blood clots that were found in both my lungs, and he went and published a hub to request prayer for me. His heart is so big for others, and he truly really cares. God bless you always, Lord. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Catching up wit so many wonderful friends:

@CrisSp, thank you so much; your words inspire us to continue writing from the heart. Deeply appreciated!

@Real Housewife, you are a good friend of ours. That won't stop even if we get famous or have to move away. The memories are unforgettable.

@Always exploring, thanks for the cheers. Totally hip and ready to make a break dancing move... sorry Josh! You have a wonderful one. We love your inspirations as well. God bless!

@Cloud explorer, We appreciate your visit and your hearfelt commenting, actually we never looked for the award. It just came our way... and we had to hold it in our hands! Thanks for that feedback and your unique input.

@MissOlive, you are very welcome. Your hubs are so educational and hope to see you win in the future. To be honest, we had enough with this award. Take care!

@ Hi Faith... the check is in.... no! I was just kidding. Gee! Did Maria tell you to write these epic eulogy to Cicero? Feels good to read you, but we are just common mortals and if the 'spirit' comes to us... we just go with the flow. Actually, Faith dear, we never know what we are going to write... or what our next installment will be about. For us is pure fun, and we get some little cash for it. Thanks for the words... sounded like a proposal (still kidding ourselves, gee!) but we were smiling like kids that won an Oscar. Thanks...now we are short of words... Just thankful to be here dear friend.
