15 Years!

WAFFLES:  Did you know this is the FIFTEENTH year of our blog, Ellie?!

ELLIE:  I didn't even know you could count that high, Mr. Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  I'm not even 15 years old. 

ELLIE:  So that must mean our blog is REALLY old.

WAFFLES:  Glogirly said she wants to say something. Do you think I should let her? I mean she's not a cat. Doesn't have fur. No tail. 

ELLIE:  But she wears cat ears on her ski helmet. That should count, right? 

WAFFLES:  Well, ok then....

GLOGIRLY:  Hi friends, Glogirly here. 

As our blog enters its 15th year, we’ve decided it’s time to ease gently into retirement. Our blog and most importantly, all the friends and readers we’ve connected with over these years, has been one of the most important and rewarding parts of our lives. It’s hard to find the right words to express what your friendship has meant to us as you’ve welcomed us into your inboxes and your hearts. You've laughed and cried with us. You've always been right there rooting for us, sharing your love along the way.

For the next 15 weeks, we’ll be celebrating our blog’s history by posting our most favorite posts of all time. We hope you’ll come along for these trips down memory lane. Glogirly the blog isn’t going anywhere…just like our love for you, all of our posts will remain right here, forever.

So let's get this party started! And what a better way to kick things off than with one of our favorite daylight savings time conversations between our beloved Katie and the ever silly Waffles.

The Daylight Savings Bank 

KATIE:  Ok, Glogirly. It's time for breakfast already. 8AM and you're still in bed. Did you forget to turn your alarm clock forward last night? This Daylight Savings stuff is going to starve us to death.

WAFFLES:  Boss! We have a daylight savings account? Like at the bank? With an ATM card and everything? 

KATIE:   Waffles, there's no savings account, no ATM card. Daylight savings means we LOST an hour yesterday. 

WAFFLES:  Did we bounce a check? Is that why we lost an hour? Are we in trouble with the daylight savings bank?

KATIE:  Waffles, there is no bank. 

WAFFLES:  Oh my COD! Did someone rob it?  What about all our daylight savings? 

KATIE:  Waffles, now listen to me. Forget the banks. There's no such thing as a daylight savings bank–

WAFFLES:  But where does everybody keep all their daylight savings? What, are we supposed to keep it under our mattress???

KATIE:  Waffles, daylight savings is when we turn the clocks forward by one hour every spring. 

WAFFLES:  Boss, it's not spring. There's still snow and stuff. This sounds fishy.

KATIE:  Whatever. Every year on the second sunday in March we turn the clocks forward by one hour. That's what we did yesterday. 

WAFFLES:  But if we changed all the clocks, how will we know what time it is? How will we know when it's time for dinner???

KATIE:  Oh, we'll know.


  1. That is too cute!!

    B & D must have wondered why we were getting up when it was still a bit dark.

  2. Wonderful, and congrats! And a special "thank you" for help/guidance/advice you've so graciously shared with me over the years when I came begging ... about photoshop and such. You always pointed me in the right direction ... keep those ears up, and the tail swishing!

  3. Congratulations on 15 years!!!

  4. Huge congratulations on 15 years! Seems like you're one of the few remaining "blogging veterans!" I'll miss your updates, but oh, how I understand the desire to slow down!

  5. This is a really good one and shows off Katie at her best. I really hate to think of you leaving. I can understand that you run out of "juice" and have other things to do, but I have enjoyed tuning in for a a very long time and will miss you...

  6. we totally agree on the time change thing. Concats on 15 years. Mom says she has been thinking about our posting too - it is harder and harder to do each year.

  7. A great memory so funny look forward to seeing the other memories.We will be sad to see you all go you brightened up our day like the shinnest star in the sky. Hugs and purrs xx 😽🐈‍⬛🐈‍⬛

  8. Congratulations on 15 years! And we hope that you'll still keep us updated on major Waffles events (like when he wins a chicken trophy or something).

  9. Happy Blogversary. Great memories.

  10. Happy Blogoversary! We're about the same since we started in 2009, but being that I rarely blog I stopped counting

  11. Sorry I'm late, but Happy Blogoversary and Happy Retirement too. I'm delighted to have actually met you in person, I really am.

  12. Concatulations ! Happy Blogoversary, and happy retirement ! We're glad to have met you and share many great moments with you online ! All the best for your next adventures ! Purrs and hugs

  13. Concatulations on such a great 15 year run and a successful blog. Katie, Waffles and Ellie have touched many hearts. Kudos for making your retirement decision. Blogging has been very difficult since I lost Lola, and I'm still not quite sure where I'm going with it yet. Thank you for sharing your decision in such a wonderful way.
