With friends like these

I'm back :hat: Did you miss me?

True, I didn't really go anywhere, but like so many others on My Opera I've just been to busy to blog.

Anyway, I do make it back and what do I see but Marcus has given me a friendship award.

๐Ÿ˜ฎ Amazing what a few silly, smart-arse comments on a blog can do. ๐Ÿ˜€ ( :devil: There I go again.)

But seriously, sometimes I think only a friend would put up with me. So on that basis, I'm tagging – in no particular order – some of those people who have yet to block me from their blog.

Ten already? :no: How can I limit it to ten?

I must at least mention The Congregation.

Thanks to all my friends here in the OC. :cheers:
