Confronted with writing a worthy post, this is me above.

So I just rolled up my sleeves for a person I’ve grown to respect and love.

I’m in and out fighting time zones across the miles,

When I login, there you are, and I’m all smiles.

Your energy and enthusiasm often puts mine to shame,

I’ve learned a lot from you, you are at the top of your game.

A year has past since you gave all of us here a chance,

To let down our hair, be serious, be very silly, cry or even dance.

I raise my distant glass to you, and think I speak for ALL of us here,

When I say, Happy !st Anniversary to TO/OT Posts, bito dear.

I wish I had a joke to tell, but I’m missing many a punch line,

So I’ll just say a big THANK YOU for sharing yourself and your time.

Cheers for everything bito, but mainly for just being you.

Kalima, Thank You, Dear One! What a nice post and poem to wake-up and see. It has been quite a year. Your warmth, thoughtfulness, intelligence and most importantly your friendship has meant much to me.
Thank You,

Kalima, such a wonderful poem that speaks for me as well! And love the graphics (and your note to Bito!) Thank you for this!

And of course, thanks to Bito for making TO/OT an invaluable and core part of the Planet but even more, sharing a “bito” himself with us in the many ways he does. Cheers Bito!

I used to crave that stuff and got teased for it. Who knew it was so sexy?

Well, that’s two bitos I like.

Still not quite sure about that bit-o-peanut butter though… it looks awfully shifty to me.

Thank You, AdLib, someone had to open up a pub on a corner of this prime real estate of The Planet. Thanks to you and Kalima for making it all possible.
