I passed my 1 year anniversary date here at DKos and didn't even notice it.
I've spent the year yammering at y'all about Itzl (and what's not to love about an anal-retentive work-a-holic hearing assistance dog that is also charming?) and Xoco (Itzl's back-up and relief hearing assistance dog, sadly brain damaged but dedicated to doing her best to hear for me at home), little rants on many things, and lately, assorted practical survival topics.
I've met some wonderful people here (too many to list - y'all know who you are!), and read some interesting and sometimes heartbreaking stories.
I know I don't comment often, but other people say what I'd like to say and often more eloquently.
This is a great place to be.
Thank you all.
