Looks like today is day 1,000 for me here at Lumberjocks.

The most amazing thing to me is not how long I’ve been here, but how much the site has grown in such a short time. By my calculations, there were only a little over 200 jocks here when I signed up. My how things have changed.

Thanks for a great site to my fellow LJ members, and a special thanks to Martin!

A thousand days. WOW You sire are a gentleman and a scholar and worthy of emulation. And, from all evidence (discounting the negative billboards on the interstate), you’re a pretty nice guy. Congrats.

I’ve been so attentive about 3 years coming soon for me, that 1000 days snuck right past.

The first thousand days went by so quick, you’ll be able to do next 1000 standing on your head.<(;Q}#
