Time to De-Lurk!! | House of Horne

Time to De-Lurk!!

Ok, Readers, it’s YOUR turn to talk! It has been brought to my attention that National De-lurking Day was exactly two Thursdays ago, so I am a little slow on this one, but seeing as how it’s House of Horne’s first time to celebrate, y’all won’t hold that against us, will ya?

If you visit here and never (or rarely) leave a comment, take a minute to stop and say hello today!! We would love to know who (besides Grammy Ruth and Peter) is reading!


*edited to add: Oh, and I certainly shouldn’t have implied that regular commenters should refrain from doing so. To all my little regulars: Y’all say howdy, too!! For the rest of you: you know who you are. And I know you are out there based on my stats page. C’mon now, don’t be shy!! Step on up, and just say “hi”!

Sorry for the cheese…way too much sleep deprivation going on around our house this week!

    Well, I, for one, am not going to de-lurk. That’s for crazy people.

    That’s me, always going against the flow….

    I comment every time Jay writes about music from the 80s.

    I’m here because Missy tagged me and I’m tracking back to see who else she tagged. What an interesting way to meet people.
    Anyway, neat blog. And I WISH my garage was able to fit even one car. Congrats on fitting two.

    Me too! I like to see what you guys are up to since we don’t see you regularly. I always enjoy reading. You know I’d like to blog too but I still haven’t gotten it going. We have sick kids too by the way. First Pertusis and now the flu! We’ll pray for your guys and please pray for ours. Even Matt and I got the flu!
