1,000 Posts: My Mom-in-Law Makes Me Laugh

Not that I've been setting records with posts or trades as of late, but now that high school baseball season is underway things are going to slow down here at Eamus Catuli. Thankfully, I'm all caught up on trade posts, but I do have a few more things in the hopper.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for my 1,000th post, but I've been eyeing this day since last November. Past P-town Tom probably should have planned a contest or something back then, because Present P-town Tom has been battling another cold. For what it's worth, I think we, as a civilization, should consider renaming schools to germatoriums. Just sayin'.

In other news, Sarah, my wonderful mom-in-law, sent me nice little surprise in the mail late last week. It's pretty great and I just had to share. Don't feel like you have to read the article, but do take a look at the pictures!
 Then I flipped over the back and laughed more than I have in a long time. Ahhhh, she's fantastic!
I love a good old-fashioned caption competition. Option B, "How to make your car easy to find in a parking lot," is my favorite of the group. I thought Option D was pretty funny, too!

Option E, "Tom's dream car," merits some discussion. I currently drive a silver Mazda CX-5 and the twelve years before that I owned a silver Hyundai Sante Fe. Both of them were the base model, which tends to suit my needs and checkbook. Someday I'll upgrade and get a moon roof and a different color... Cub blue! Honestly, my dream vehicle would be a shiny, Cub blue, SUV with a small World Champions sticker on the back window. I've always been more of the understated type.
For now, I'll have to settle for just having the sticker on the back window. 

One thousand posts in a little under six years. Wow. The interactions I've had and friendships I've made through my blogging experience have given me much joy during the better part of this decade. I don't know if I'll be around for another thousand, but thank you to those who follow my humble little corner of the internet.


  1. I just moved to a gray car from a yellow car. I have a really hard time finding the new car in the parking lot. My wife reminded me that I could push the key fob (something else the old car lacked) button and make the lights flash, but I never think of that. Maybe I need to wrap my car in Denver Broncos or Houston Astros logos.

    Congrats on 1,000 posts. I am also dealing with a cold. I think my kids brought it home from their germatorium. I had avoided catching it for a few days, but it finally got me this morning.

  2. Congrats on 1,000 to one of the best bloggers out there.

  3. Well done Good luck with the high school season

  4. Happy 1k! Congrats. My wife and I rented a car and got a CX-5 and loved it. It'll probably be our next buy. Thanks for trading with me, I feel immensely privileged to be represented on your blog. Good luck with your cold, and the baseball season.

  5. Congratulations on your accomplishment! 1,000 posts is pretty darn impressive.

  6. Congrats on 1000 posts and possibly even more impressive, six years of blogging.

  7. Congrats on 1000! I was really hoping that crazy Cubs car was yours.

  8. Congrats on 1000 posts and on having a pretty cool mother-in-law. Boy I hope some crazed Cardinals fan doesn't do something bad to that work of art.
