HubPage Hubbers Vanish Overnight-Hyphenbird Panics!

Source

I woke up early, kissed the kids, kicked the dog, so sorry sweet little SusieQ42-how I love you, poked the fire and threw on a log. Then sent my man out the door, he has a living to earn and I have hours to burn. Told him to hurry home soon as I crossed two fingers that I would not see him until tomorrow at noon. Oh a little Storytellersrus never hurt anyone, right lambservant?

Brewed a big pot of java, phoned work to say “I’m not coming today”. It might be contagious, (cough, cough) yeah I think it is that new HubPage Fever! Several have succumbed including maven101, may he rest in pieces-I mean peace! But not me, I have a Cloverleaf with three or four wishes to protect me. Did you say don't bother coming in tomorrow? Fine, who needs a job anyway?

Then I straightened the painting on the wall-it is a rembrandz you know, sat down on the sofa, booted up the ‘puter, flexed the mouse hand and took a deep breath and a sigh. Oh, without this fix I surely would die. Would I ever live again to rise into the sky like a feenix ?

Logged onto HubPages only to find a void! A vacancy! No dallaswriter nor a horsebackrider anywhere. This is so NotPC!

It was not a SunnieDay at all and I cried out to Maggie-May that I think Genna went East. And where oh where was that What Is Q? What am I going to do? I cannot see the skye2day at all, just despair and woe follow me!

Perhaps I can email saddlerider and see if he has seen Faithful Daughter. If I cannot read anything new I am going twobmad! Oh is that a new follower or two or three? No just Dave Matthews ghost I spy as I cry. Oh, Alastar Packer can I be your cyberstalker?!

Oh me-Oh my! Alone I drift out here in Forums, Feeds, and I want to forget RSS as I dial 911 and scream “Where is everyone? Of course this is an emergency Lady!” Epi must give me a Gram! C-Bless me please before I faint from the shock of it all.

Aliens have taken my HubPages family! MinnetonkaTwin is not to be found and Bumpsysmum is nowhere around.Poohgranma is lost in space and WillStarr has not shown his face! AlwaysExploring does not show SavingGrace and a day without mindyjgirl makes my mind whirl. Martiecoetser what am I to do without you? Dexisview, I cannot live without you too. GrafikaPro, where is everyone? Do you know what has happened to DougTurnerJr?

I know what I must do. I have a great plan! Gus The Redneck is just the man! He knows KTannahillwell and what makes Sharyn Slant, but enough about that…..

Barbergirl28 please don’t be late. I need you I weep as they tie that white coat tight across my waist. Is that a sedative, I wonder as I tell them to JustAskSusan. She will vouch for my sanity and if not ask Ghost32. He is not new, he’s been here for ages and ages. By the way, is that a frog dropping from the ceiling? Just call my doctor. SimoneSmith is her name and she can tell you that I have always been sane.

Hi Nurse? What a great smile. Can you let me go? Can’t you hear? Aren’t you enlydialistener? Where is your HealingTouch? You aren't saying anything. Do you need a vocalcoach?

Fine then. I am out of here. Just give me that pill, the PurpleOne there and let James A Watkins call me a cab. I need to get home anyway. Let me go or I will become a Shinkicker. Untie me I say! You WriteAngled folk better not mess with my KoffeeKlatchGals or you will be sorry that you made me late for crazybeanrider. She is OCD but I grow weary so my friend is going to put my Bail Up.

I am outta here! The kids will be home soon and they think our home is Paradise7 but I will be back on 2uesday!

Hi honey, welcome home. How was work? You are such a goodearner. Me? Nah, it was a lovely quiet day here in Galaxy59. This biblicaliving is the life for me.

Hubbers, see why I need you day and night? Without you all I get a fright. Write me, email too. Tell me that you still love me! Please do!

Look across the horizion, the Sunset gradually fades, and wahes the sky with colors that signals the end of my day, a day that passed so quickly, I didnt see it pass, now Im filled with memories, some happy and some regrets, Others have passed before me that walk this earthly way , taking courage from each other, and sunsets that gently fade. So let us find common ground upon which we all may stand, and simply change our ways to make us a better friend... I wish you all, a "Blessed evening"...Lisa

What wonders are still to come from such a mind?

From one hubber to the next, your talent so kind.

You have my permission, to cyberstalk all you will.

just so long as your hubs continue, to give me my daily fill.

Pity the man who thinks he writes good poetry.

Magnificent writing Hyph!

Great work, Hyphen! Very clever and funny. I'm deeply honored to have had a mention. I still love you, so no need to panic. Actually, I love you even more now. I must try this 'name all your followers hub' thing to return the favor. :)


attemptedhumour profile image

attemptedhumour 5 years ago from Australia

I made a list of a lot of hubbers a few months ago with the same idea but got sidetracked and didn't follow it through. Well done though it's a fun exercise that's easy to read. Keeps the cogs turning too.


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

Q, please do. Hey that rhymes! Am I a poet and don't know it? Man it is too early and I have not had coffee yet. I should not be on here. Thanks for reading and your great comment.

ps-Hyphen the bird wants to know if you are gonna copy his hair do.

I love your creation because I know your heart,

And often I can tell

This was awesome... now to decide what to do... vote it awesome, useful, beautiful or funny! I vote all four but it will only let me pick one! I am thinking maybe we should start a trend - we should all dedicate a hub to those we love!

Great hub! Love your style! :) And thanks for the shout out!


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

barbergirl, you are very kind. I do love this and never thought about writing something like this. I just sat down and it spilled out of the recesses of my mind. Pretty scary when even I don't know what is in there. lol

I appreciate your reading and whatever vote you chose. Thanks so much.


attemptedhumour profile image

attemptedhumour 5 years ago from Australia

I didn't really know enough about the different hubbers when i made the list, so it would have had no emotion in it. Plus i hadn't thought of a thread either. You beat me to the draw, so well done. Your hub sails along nicely. It's not as easy as it may seem to stitch that lot together, but don't we love it!


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

attemptedhumor, yes we do love it! And I just love this HubPage world and all the talented people. But do think about creating your own. Each one can be unique because of the creative gifts we all have and how we see things. Thank you for your kind words.

Hyphenbird very nicely done, thank you for mention of my name, don't worry you are never alone at the hubs. There are many of us in and out during the day commenting on fellow hubbers latest and newest writes.

I wish I could keep up with all the hubbers who follow me and leave comments. I do my best to reply as quickly as I can to many and I certainly love reading new hubs and you are certainly one of them. You weaved this hub so eloquently and with creative style. Hugs..and wink.


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

I am considering copying Hyphen's hair style. I've always wanted to dye my hair blonde, too, so maybe I'll look just like Hyphen. That and some rouge makeup and I'll be good to go.

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

Q, you should know something first. Hyphen is a bit...well, passionate. He might think you are a Hyphenette and fall in love with you! He really is adorable. He was strutting around in here earlier intimidating the dog!

His hairstyle really is cool. It would be a great look for you, especially in your position in Retail World.

Hi Tina. It is so good to meet you. This was so much fun that day I wrote it. There are some great people here on HubPages. I wanted to honor some and wish I could have included them all.

I hope I am fun. My little Hyphen (the bird) says I am. You being a fellow bird lover will understand that:)

dallaswriter profile image

dallaswriter 5 years ago from North Carolina

It makes me so sad that someone stole the bird, how disgusting for writing, for the creative word! I never liked posers or fake pretends who will stab you in the back, then give you a hand. Is there no writing police, no WBI to take out the trash and catch people who lie? But beware to those lurkers who hide in the dark, that copy our works claiming it came from their heart. "Creativity of words is born of the soul, like the air we breathe, that makes us whole. If you have to steal to find your light, a tragedy will find you as you fall in mid flight",


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

dallaswriter, I agree. A thief will never have positive outcomes. Whoever is on that 68 articles and is stealing work will get caught. They have no talent or honor and cannot hold onto ours!

Good Morning Hyphenbird..you know what I realized this morning..for some reason I am not seeing your hubs when they are published..I am so sorry..I would be reading them everyday..I just read another that had already been out a few days..I am perplexed...any way..this was so funny, unique, and I just loved it..brought a big smile to me today..Thank you so much..it is certainly a scary thought should we lose our hubber friends whom we love so much..you are one!

God Bless

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

Hello dear thoughtful Sunnie. Please don't be concerned. I know Hubbers are very busy people. And sometimes I fail to get email too. It is hard to find time to search profiles for new Hubs. I know you are my friend and follower and I appreciate you.

Hyphenbird, at first, I was disappointed that you did not mention me. Then, when I saw the age of the initial comments, I realized that when you published this hub, I had not even joined the site, or else I had just joined it. Anyway, I enjoyed reading this post. It is very clever and amusing, and it made me smile.


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 5 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

feenix, I go back and add people occasionally. I did indeed add you, thanks for the comment and providing opportunity to put more Hubbers on the list. The formatting is all messed up for some reason and try as I may, I cannot fix it. I will keep on trying tonight. Thanks so much.

You are welcome lambservant. I loved writing this little tribute to my Hub friends. It was shortly after I joined. I probably should rewrite it and add more people. I am thrilled you enjoyed it and got a pick-me-up from it. Thank you for the visit.
