Gee, another milestone.

I was looking at my posts and I noticed that today, Groundhogs day 2009, is my 1000 day of being a member.

This has been truly a blast and a lot of fun.

Made lots of friends, and probably a few enemies. But, overall an upward time being here.

Have fun guys and gals and make sawdust, or planer shavings. What ever turns you on.

And thank you Martin.

Congrats Karson!!! 1,000 days – that is impressive.

I do find it hard to believe that you’d make any enemies though. ;-)

Well you are 1000 days ahead of me, my friend. I know one thing for sure. I no longer need 26 hour days. I am now pushing for 28 hrs ones. The youngsters keep me hoping that is for sure.

Thanks guys. I’ve truly enjoyed my time here.

And, I’m happy to pass along some of my experience and fill in the rest with BS.
