This is where I will be ;

Virtual Sorta Guilt.....

Oh my dear "virtual friends" and hubpages family I must let you know that it is time for me to bid "farewell" for a short while. You see my life has gotten quite busy and I need to focus on a few very important projects for the next couple of weeks. I know, you may not necessarily miss me since I have been commenting a bit less then a few months ago.....BUT my inner engine made me feel like I needed you to know. The "special" one's that I think about often when I hit hubpages armed with many new "ideas." I do try to reach out to people that I feel have similiar interests, warmth and heart.

So, I guess you can say this is a bit of a "tribute" to my "virtual hubbers" who stick out on the page, atleast to me when I sign onto this site or I receive an e-mail with a new hub that you wrote.

A little something for you

There is something about you....

James A. Watkins, James McV Sailor, cheaptrick, Tattoguy, meteoboy, jess killmenow, Russell-D & prasetio30. You have all inspired me at one time or another. Especially when I first started writing here on hubpages.

James A. Watkins for your well researched hubs and your "fine talent" for making people stand up and voice their opinions on subjects that make them uncomfortable. For your beautiful heart and love of animals and music. PLUS, you look great in a suit ;

James McV Sailor for your sense of adventure and "positive thoughts" on your life and current situation right now. For your honesty and your survival skills and for your glorious adventure writing and stories. I'm waiting for your novel.

cheaptrick for your odd ball sense of humor and great "quirky" stories about "love" and most of all for your fantastic comments that make me giggle. I always enjoy your "voice." You are a hopeless romantic in disguise!

Tattoguy, you have made me laugh so many times with your sense of humor and your tattoo hubs. The comments you make are classic and somewhere in all of your silliness, I know that you have a huge heart. Just thinking of you in your vacation gear makes me want to have a beer with you and I don't even drink! ha

meteoboy, you seem to appear once in a while with beautiful pics of something I have not seen for a long time. It reminds me that the world is so big and we need to stop and look at some of these places and say "nothing." They are truly "magical."

jess killmenow....your writing and poetry is very entertaining and I feel that if I was a psychologist I would know exactly what kind of person you are! ha You have surprised me many times with your romantic flair.....I thank you for your talent and fabolous sense of humor.

Russell-D...I always enjoy your creative stories for children and fantastic ideas for songs. You always surprise me and I'm thankful to have met you "virtually." You have been a very good writing friend.

prasetio30...I have always gotten a kick out of the subjects you write about. Especially the one's about "strange things" that happen around the world. I admire your dedication to hub writing! You always leave nice comments and I always appreciate them when you do.

So, my dear friends...I want to leave a gift here for you. I wish I had more room on this hub and more time........When you open the gold wrapping paper, make a wish!

OK! Girls.......

Special thanks to Island Voice, viryabo, The Rope, habee, HappyHer, kartika damon, Zsuzsy bee and kaie arwen.

Island Voice for your kindness, your beautiful artwork and your love of James Bond. Also for your honest and giving hubs and your great comments. PLUS you like hot cocoa!

viryabo for your really cool "retro" hubs and well thought out writing. I always enjoy reading your new hubs and your lovely comments! 

The Rope for all of your heart and very kind support and comments you always leave.

habee, for your "Southern flair" and great recipes. I always enjoy the warmth that you leave with your words.

HappyHer! I believe that everything you write is 100% you. I always get a kick out your hubs and your opinions. I like that you always inspire people to enjoy themselves!

kartika damon...I feel that you and I have a lot in common when it comes to how we view this world we are in. I always get a joy out of your "opinion" about others in the media. I feel you have a strong voice and I enjoy you.

Zsuzsy have this very "direct" and quirky sense of humor which I enjoy a lot. I also like that you have great ideas and are always there to share them with fellow hubbers. I also always enjoy your comments.

kaie arwen...your love for your children is what made me gravitate to your hubs in the beginning. I find your comments very enjoyable because you always have good points to share. I feel that you have a good future in story writing.

Thank you

Thank you to all of you who have inspired me in little ways everytime I sign onto this site. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you are lucky enough to be around someone who loves you.......enjoy it! 

I will check in from time to time, but I may miss some fantastic hubs in the next couple of weeks. I do hope you get inspired by other hubbers like I have. 

All the best, GPAGE
