Hi friends
I’ve had a few of my LJ buddies contacting me saying congrats on almost hitting a 100,000 comments,well it looks like I’ll be hitting that number in the next couple days. Here’s the amazing news I found out last night ,as soon as I hit the 100,000 comment mark the owners of LJs is going to give me a dollar for each comment,a new car and let me invite 10 of my best LJs buddies and their families to Hawaii for a all expense paid 4 day trip. I was astonished and over welmed with their generosity .

Oh ,I forgot to tell you I got the news in a dream last night Ha Ha LOL

Maybe I would have to ask for all of us on LJs to go YA HOOOOOO
But where would they put all that Koa wood that every body would want to bring home ?

Regardless of getting a trip to Hawaii of just getting a postcard from Hawaii…that is one heck of an accomplishment…however, I am right on you heels with only 95,700+ more posts to go to reach 100,000.

Tonight I’ll try to dream about getting you some fuzzy dice for that car. And maybe a bobble head. (you’re an ornery fellow aren’t you)

That’s great news, Jim. Congratulations. What else did you dream about last night? When I have a dream that I don’t understand I’m going to consult you.
