Celebrating Our 30 Over Thirty, Congrats Elite Writers!

Updated on September 1, 2012

Thirty over 30! And that was fun!

Running around, smiling

jumping of joy and swaying

Dancing about and crying...

moving around and defying...

Singing and screaming...

finishing and hubbing with fun words after all?

nothing to worry or blame things that could've been foretold!

Now is the time to celebrate... We are the bomb!

Jumping, chilling

and never concealing

Consequently Patty Inglish was right after all !

Knew it all along..! God grief! Come on!

So Thank you guys! for

some words from the Gods

we beat some crazy odds after all!

At last we are free!! ooh! ooh!

We're glad this is it... ooh! ooh!

We Know our peeps!! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Shoot! Thing...dang! dang! Toon! Toon!

Cindy, Julianna and the rest of the gang

gave their blessings in advance to us all oh! oh!

Lisa, Kim Lam and the rest of the elite

did the best for our clan

clapping hands..!

Brian Slater and me

blessed our maker indeed

Kimberly, keep screaming

the wonderful award winners! Oh Please!

Sharon Smith

and Samuda Carolee

Vinaya's interviews in between

They all contributed to our plan...!

Going around our chair now..! Big bang!

Uninvited Writer,

Vicki Hodges

and the rest of us


created a world with so much fun..!

Simone please don't ignore us hun!

Oh wow! Oh wow...zap! My man!

running around like crazy

moving around this chair

shaking away this madness

coming around as one !

rising heart beats and all!

Susan Sutautas

Colin Steward

made our group so unique

and Miss Olive on the Hub,

would you close this thread... Oh please!

Running around like crazy

moving away from this deep hazy

Cheering H.C. Porter and her 'Portrait dream'

coming around as one after all!

Eidween Jones

and all sweet moms

changed our lives at once

Audrey Hunt

Pamela N' Red

did awesome deeds

making this challenge so deep!

Dancing, smiling

we knew we were going to make it

Debbie Brooks bring that recipe

And the good wine...would you please?

running around and smiling at once

moving around this craze

shaking away this madness

Cindy Lawson, how can get away from Panda!


Debbie B.

and Vincent the Saddle

gave a heart to this club with so much joy, so unreal


Kelly and

wonderful Tammy

Cheering us up at our own Grammy's

Ardie P


and joyful Marcie

joined the great Rahjan Sing Jolly..!

This was so much fun! Indeed!

Cindy Lawson

Mitchell Simtoco

...didn't mind helping around


and our friend Wayne Brown

always dropped by to say hi...! Kaput!

So Thank you peeps

wasn't this great after all?

This time please rhyme your

hearts with the one above all

didn't forget any one else

was hard enough for us to

keep this thing going...!

Just have some fun

this thing is over...

time to try another challenge at once...!

Come on in Watson, Nell Rose and Watkins...!

Where was my Thomas Young?

Running around, smiling

jumping of joy and swaying

Knowing this thingy was exhilarant! duh!

Thinking, screaming

just moving it together!

Perhaps we forgot Stuart Lawrence our Man!

don't tell me that Susan Holland

Oh my God! Thank you guys

for giving meaning to our lives...!

Stretching and yawning

shaking and convulsing

Chanting and yelling to the top of our lungs

Dialing 911 in case this was an epileptic session

twisting these threads, making you guys feel special

Stumping and about to hit cursing mode

Boiled rice got burnt and my room is full of smoke

time to go to buy my shrimp lo-mein and feed our inspirational thoughts...!

thinking, creating

dropping another line that can satisfy us all

Having a party, and a ball of our own...thanks to you all!

Hold it Candy V., would you join me to break this dance with thee?

Anything in that basket that can help me keep that energy

couldn't you see...?

    Congratulations indeed to all those who particapated in this marathon challenge of 30 hubs in 30 days. I think my Quill and I would die of exertion attempting to scribe so many pieces over this time period of 30 days. I tip my hat and bow before all those who met the chanllenge and for those who attempted this feat I commend you as well.

    Hats off to everyone who participated! That is quite a challenge. Did it once and it almost killed me. Had to use a wrench and hydraulic lift to get my posterior separated from the desk chair! My posture has never been the same since. Haha!

    @Candie V,

    Thanks for your efforts and being there for us/ was a wonderful experience and we want you to take that challenge. Just leave that basket with us./

    @ Must65gt, you did say it right. We needed time and free time, to make it happen.

    @Raciniwa, dear, lovely teacher and friend. You also inspired us, with your efforts and well done hubs. We all have a style, but in the end... we as human beings, get that togetherness on its way. Thanks!

    @ Candy V. Hoot-huh! Hoot-huh!. The gang is the promoter, really good! I thought it would take you until the end of the month to get the real meaning...was joking just in case. No offenses at all!

    I must admit my heart was smitten

    When I saw my name here written

    And so filled with excitation

    That I jumped in jubilation

    To be mentioned in your hub

    With others lofty and above

    If gave me a sense of glee

    That you even mentioned me

    So with humble thanks to you

    too everything for us you do

    I offer my most heartfelt thanks

    for adding my name to the ranks

    I have been long watching these Hubber-Herculeses and been fidgeting to give it a try. I am not at all confident of being able to make it (procrastinator that I am! :D); but it is a great feeling even to contest in something like this. Cheers to all the elite and thanks to Lord. That is a great Hub. Voted up.
