My 365th day as a LumberJock is drawing to a close, and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Martin, Debbie and all the good folks (you!) that have made it an exciting and gratifying year. I’ve learned a lot, met some very special men and women and had the opportunity to break bread and exchange gifts and ideas with some world class individuals. Here’s to the next year with the 4000 (and counting) of you!

Your unselfish giving of your talent and your time to the place are a large factor in making it what it is today.
I am sure , like Martin, that you are a bright light here and we look forward to seeing your smiling face for a long time to come.

Thanks Doug

Congrats on the anniversary!
You bring so much to the club – experience, inspiration, and all the work for the shop tours.
I have to say “who would MsDebbieP be, without you!!” :)

Thanks all!
Dick, the cake was particularly delicious.

Like the Master Carpenter said “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”

I’ve had a lot of fun here – Photoshopped and otherwise.
Speaking of which, I don’t have a shop tour lined up for April.
I know Deb is likely having a busy go of it at GardenTenders in the month of April, but I’m willing to wager she’ll have time for a Tour. Which LJ with posted shop pictures is game (I keep looking for CalGirl to post that shop with curtains).
