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

Jim … I don’t want to go to Hawaii. Can you give me a ticket to the Bahamas instead?

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.
