WOW, that's what I say...WOW.

I am truely honored...I kid you not...

Just look at that list of those whom were selected in the past for MOTM,
many of whom have commented herein. To be placed side by side
w/ you guys is just plain awesome, I thank you all so much...

I have had my unwanted small share of run in's with a couple of guys here,
perhaps a couple of times I should have just clamed up but sometimes
people need a good talkin too! HA!

As I read here recently, the best way to approach these forumns is
to wear a thick skin, maintain a short memory and I will interject into that "pay it forward"...
THAT is what makes this place work IMO, The payin' it forward deal.
Anyone whom has produced a pictorial "how to" herein and elsewhere knows
the work it takes, but it is fun to do as well.
"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another" Proverbs 27:17

I am so very, Very honored...

I am not worthy..., but I try.

Of coarse I knew about it, as I had a little something to do w/
the content but I kinda thought it was a maybe, kinda deal, but no,
yesterday I got a congragulatory email from HQ, and this morning at 3:30 A.M. I
awoke and launched the puter' and there she was, GEORGEOUS,
my little God send turtle! (Tourtise) Ha! She is an incredible beast...
She is so happy now...when I found her in my backyard she has been
spray-painted, she was covered in motor oil and they drilled her shell to tie
her up (along the edge, not the middle) and they carved there phone number in her...
We suspect she is about 70 or so years old... Additionally when she was
a youngster it looks like she was hit by a car, her carapus is all smashed and healed
on the top...WAY to much human cruelty...she was lead here to us to retire happily, a kept turtle.
She is spoiled now. She gets a diet just right and she has gained a LOT of weight.
The wife dotes over the beast...VERY cool, prehistoric, animals they are. She wakes
up several times during the winter, does donuts around my chair causing trouble w/ wires and
then moesies back into her house and goes back to sleep for a month more
or so.

Thank You Muhammad Christy & family for TBN and Thanx TBN to all members at large,
to be picked out of a pot of approaching, I think it is 170 THOUSAND or so
members, is, like, WOW!

(insert a bow of humility here) :cowboy:

Thanx James... writting is kinda fun. I have had many
a soul suggest I should write for a living, but I can't
speel for baens. :D If I had to pick the best spot in it
I think it would be the picture of my log splitter and it's
tow vehicle.* That splitter is over the top cool. I need
to do an expose' on it, you won't believe how awsome that
thing really is... Here is a teaser;
