I was looking in the back end of WoodyBoater this morning, making sure all her moving parts were up to date and working. And dang. Noticed that today we just made 5,000 stories published. This being 5,001. WTH? Thats a whole lotta miss spelled words. Bag grammar, and photoshop.
We started this crazy journey in October of 2007 and well, in a bazillion years did I think we would be here. We have been through a lot together and found many new friends, and sadly lost some. It used to be strange to have this sort of alternative universe we all live in together, but now its just pals checking in on each other from around the planet. To the tune of around 73,000 comments. Which I have read all of them. I have to see each one to make sure its not spam, or nasty to a person.
But regardless of the amount of stories and crazy history we have together, this brand, is about you. We here that keep this leaky ship afloat, depend on you and your stories, humor and comments. You are the bilge pump that keeps it all from sinking.
I also would like to stand and salute our wonderful sponsors who have supported us over the decade and a half ish. Your support is the power that runs the bilge that keeps pumping. Okay this metaphor is getting a tad strange. If the sponsors are the power, you you are the bilge pump, then what in the hell do I do? Putting chewing gum in the holes, driving like hell to shallow waters? And where does that put Troy? is he in charge of bung holes?
What if Paul and Karen are driving, are we gonna break down? Wow, that metaphor just took a odder turn. And I cant seem to get out of it. Ugh.. It’s a metaphor rabbit hole. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Thanks for your help over the years. And looking forward to 5000 more stories. Wait? What?
