With our resent celebration of our 20,000 LJ member it got me thinking about what if we celebrated or had a count down for any number of things ,say things like: only 2600 days give or take until I’m 70 years old or a common one ,only 154 days till Christmas or 18 hours 23 minutes until breakfast Or how about a celebration for my new tooth brush being put into service, ya hoo. I’m sure you will have a countdown or subject that you might include.
This is not meant to belittle our milestones on Ljs just to have fun.

11 years/3 months/7 days/9 hours since I’ve had a cigarette. 32 yr/3pack a day smoker. Now if I do some math over 3.00 per pk when I quit so lets say 10.00 per day 30 days per month that’s 300.oo per month times 12 is 3600.00 per year times 11 equals 39,600 plus 3×300 equals 900.00 plus 10×7 = 70.oo … that’s over $40,000 and they are over $5.00 per pack now!
That’s how I can afford anything I want for my shop. Think about it.

How about celebrate how many boring pens or basic cutting boards were submitted in the projects.
Does the computer have a way to weed out the unactive members?
Are we cheating?
I think some members think this is a guest book and they sign in once never to be seen again. LOL

1 month exactly until my little sis’s wedding! The future brother in-law and myself have been working feverishly every chance we get to construct enough rustic benches to seat apprx. 75 behinds for the outdoor country wedding. It has been a joy collaborating ideas and creating what I hope is rather unique furniture mostly out of natural edged leftover slabs from my sawmill. I look forward to posting pictures and getting your opinions once they are all completed.
Back to the original subject… I just glanced down to the clock and realized I must make a correction. It is now 1 day short of exactly 1 month until my little sis’s wedding! Better get to work!!!
