POPULAR BLOG / WEBPAGE- Most webpages and blogs have forums and comment attached to them . Nicole told me it would be better if we didn’t have them on my webpage. And I think that is the main reason my webpage is still going strong 5 years later.
I have visited several nice popular forums over the years only to see the trouble makers start posting negative comments . And over time, those troublemakers actually destroy the very nice forum and they end up shutting them down. So I see Nicole was correct not to put that on my webpage. So the good news today is I will make it to the one million visitor number by Sat. morning !!! I don’t know how many more years I will continue to post a new picture everyday , but I can say that I have no plans to stop. I’m not trying to empress anyone, or brag about anything, but just share the things I love with so many nice people. Hobbies are very important to get our minds off the everyday hassles we all seem to have. So thanks again everyone for a fun five years of having a webpage.
COUNTDOWN CONTINUES- With just two days to go on the countdown, today the U.S. city that has sent the second largest number of visitors from the second most towns and cities is PENNSYLVANIA !!! Penn. sent visitors in the last 12 months from a whopping 291 different towns and cities around the great Steelers State to my webpage !!! Thanks everyone in the great state of PENNSYLVANIA !!!
COUNTDOWN WORLD WIDE – The country that is second from the top in the world that sent the most visitors from the most towns and cities in the last year is CANADA !!! Our friends to the north of us sent visitors to my webpage in the last year from a whopping 385 towns and cities !!! Thanks everyone in CANADA !!!
CANADIAN FRIEND- Todays picture is a long time E-mail friend from Toronto , Canada , Wayne . Wayne is one of my biggest fans over the years so I just had to post a picture of him today representing Canada. Thanks Wayne for your nice E-mail friendship !
It won’t be long and Wayne will be sending that cold Canadian air our way , ha,ha.
KFC BUCKET REFUSAL IN GAYLORD- Deb went to get us a couple dinners at KFC yesterday and asked if she could also buy a empty bucket to take home? They told her NO !, that is against their policy ! I wanted to autograph a nice clean empty bucket of chicken and fill it with some of my models for the grand prize , one millionth visitor ! So I’m a little frustrated today knowing I have let so many fans down , (:).
TULSA TRUCK UPDATE- I got the rear bumper detail done and the lower axles and driveshafts all in place. Now I am building the winch that mounts in the front pocket of the bed.
Have a nice Thurs.

DAY THREE TO ONE MILLION VISITORS – With Germany making the list of the third country in the world with visitors from the next most towns and cities to my webpage in the last year, I thought it would be fun to include a picture of Bill , his sister Cheryl and their very nice mom, Helga Rossol ( Heath ) to today’s pictures.
