What a great surprise @Shaul, Congrats!
Congratulations Shaul! Tomnod/Discourse software moves in mysterious ways - sometimes when you’re sure you should have gained a badge it doesn’t give one out, and other times it grants them out of the blue…
Yaaay, congratulations Shaul
Which one are you aiming for next
Just received another anniversary badge this morning. It’s been 3 years already? Wow, has time flown by so quickly! I guess that’s why they (my gypsy BIL) say, “Life is like a roll of toilet paper… The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.”
That’s one I haven’t heard before. Will have to remember
You should have received it 3 times already. I just looked at the date you joined the forum and it was in June, 2015.
@Jim7 is correct. On your Anniversary badge, it shows the number 3 in the right top corner. The badge stays B&W, since it can be earned every year. Anyway, you have earned it each year.
When I mentioned that some badges were B&W, @Mel_Nod informed me that was Discourse’s version of “silver.”
For all of us silver-haired folks?
My wife’s hair is “platinum blonde!” I’m still “salt & pepper” with a touch of blonde - ever since I was a child, the sun would bleach some locks of hair on one side and when I combed it back, it would blend in and some people thought I had my hair streaked blonde by a hair stylist. I’d just tell them, “Nope! It’s naturally sun-bleached.” Funny how my hair started out “dirty blonde”, then darkened to a light brown (with blonde streaks), then got a darker brown (with blonde streaks), and now it “salt & pepper” (with blonde streaks). What a colorful head of hair I’ve had over the years!
Jim, I think Kate was referring to your toilet paper quote not the badge
I’ve never heard of it either…'tis one to add to my collection for future use
Sounds just like mine Jim I’d love to just dye it “platinum blonde” and be done with it but the kids would be in uproar…they say I look too young yet … think I’m at that awkward cross-road in life between middle-aged and old and the kids refuse to let me cross over
Don’t go into the light!
After re-reading you reply, I figured I’d better tell you… my wife didn’t dye her hair. That’s how it grayed - naturally. It all turned to snow white or as I tell her and other people (with a smirk), “platinum blonde.” Everyone loves her “color” and are envious that she doesn’t have to dye her roots or do any dyeing to keep a solid color.
Well with a new account comes another round of discobot, badges etc.
Last night my son wanted to know if I was classed as a “senior citizen”
Funny how my wife used to say you weren’t a “senior” until you turned 65. But when she started seeing a lot of companies giving perks to those 55 and older, suddenly 55 was okay to be a senior.
You could always tell your son, “Yes, I’m a senior citizen… Be extra nice to me.”
hehehe Everybody gets to “heart” more.
