Pat_on_the_back_1

People, you’re really doing a GREAT job of it. Serious. Have I told you that lately? GIve yourself a PAT ON THE BACK!

The traffic of this site continues to grow, and it’s all because of YOU. I mean, I can only hit this site so many times a day. (3? 4?) But ya’ll consistently bring the trafeek numbers Juuuuust past 4.

It’s truly amazing to see the continued growth—traffic is hurtling forward faster and furiouser than a kitteh trying to get out of a swimming pool.

“Paws Up” THE RESORT!?

Pu_baybeeOMG, People.

Get a load of the "Paws Up" luxury resort in Montana! You thought "Paws Up" was a Cute Overload saying? Well, no mo’. It’s a seriously sweet luxury resort, with cattle drives, treasure hunts on ATVs, fly fishing, 5-star dining, you name it. Eagle-eyed reader Hillary N. has brought this to our atten-shons.

I did NOT trademark it fast enough. At least the place looks hella sweet.
