First let me say that I think it is awful nice of Martin to give away the shirts he’s handing out.
I am one of those who never win’s anything but, in this case, if I happen to win one and a1Jim doesn’t then I want mine to go to him. I really thought he would get one in the first ten that went out for the 100 most active LumberJocks.( before you say it, I know, it is a random drawing and I don’t mean to sound like I don’t appreciate what Martin is doing, because I do as a matter of fact, if I need something from Rockler or the other’s that advertise here, I try to always come to LJ and click on their site before I buy in hope that thru the affilate programs Martin gets the credit) While I have never meet him in person, for the comments and blogs and other stuff he post he seems like a really nice guy. He also posts more comments on other’s work than anyone else here. If I post something and he doesn’t I start to worry that something may be wrong or that my project is really, really bad,LOL. All of this is just my opinion and thoughts and we all know what they say about opioions.
Have a great day, each and every one of ya’ll !!!!!!!!!

It’s a random thing. Martin has picked great people . I really apreciate the kind thought Built2 last But I’m the same as you, I’ve never won anything either. I can think of two or three dozen people who it would be nice if they got shirts too . It’s the kind of thing that when you have a celibration, that it would be great if everone got one. It was nice of Martin to come up with idea at all. Thanks for all the votes gang.

I agree that Jim would deserve it. But there are many other awesome LumberJocks that would deserve it too. Since my budget is limited I at least tried to increase the chances of the 100 most active members in this giveaway.

Chances are that Jim will soon win something cool – maybe the first LJ “Got Wood” shirt? ;)

Martin is right “But there are many other awesome LumberJocks that would deserve it too.”
Martin was good enough to do the best he could but if someone wants to give anything away it would be hisor her choice.

Hi Jim,
No but if this is a really big wish I will make you one! But thik of the concequences waring this – every one will come up to you and say: ‘then give me some’! ;-)
Martin: Yes I know, and it’s a wonderful idea, no critic at all just some smiles between friends. You do a wonderful job, I’m so impressed of the spirit you were able to grow here. I think it’s your belive in people, and I’m sure you have a big heart.
Thank you both.
