A belated WELCOME!

To my newest Blog-brother, Shakey Pete of Shakey Pete's Shootin' Shack. He was a regular commentor and guest-poster over at Bad Example for a while, but eventually he gave in to peer pressure and started his own blog.

I know I've had more than a few Bad Example family members join that I didn't welcome to the Blogshpere (Or Blogdodecahedron if you're so inclined). And I don't want any of them to feel slighted. It's just that I'm usually too lazy to things like this.

But Pete is just a little different. He's the first person to start a blog after I said "Go start a blog!" And while I know that my voice probably didn't have any real effect on his final decision to start blogging, I still think of myself as a little bit of a Bloguncle. (Even though we both have the same Blogfather. The Bad Example Family is full of things like that...)

I know that it won't take long for Peter to surpass me in readers and all around blogginess. I don't mind. He has a lot better stuff than I do to say.

In fact check out a few posts from his first week of blogging.

Here's a great article about Gun Proofing your child. And while I didn't actually go through any of this myself, I agree wholeheartedly on the entire issue.

Peter also shares his thoughts on the 30th anniversary of a dark April 30th in South-East Asia. Fortunately, I was too young to be able to remember this day myself. (Only one and a half years old at the time.) However, I have studied my American History, so I do share a lot of the feelings that Pete expressed. Let's hope the country can learn from what really happened. And not just what revisionist historians tell us happened.

Love his stuff, you were right, he should be blogging

He's definitely one of the best things to ever go into pixels.

Tough to get him started, though. I don't think ANYONE ever held out so long or so fiercely.

And thanks for helping push :-)

Holy crap! Y'all are gonna give me such a case of the big head that I won't be able to get to the bathroom without cuttin' a bigger door.
I'm nothing all that special, just a guy with a way with words and too much time on my hands.
Thaks for the kind words.
