My wife was the one who convinced me to write these stories down. It seemed that every day when I came home, I would have yet another stupid story to tell her. Finally one day she said, "Doc (not his real name), why don't you keep a journal or something so you don't forget these stories?"
Hm. Interesting idea. So I started this blog for myself and my kids, but other people (this means you) have caught wind of it and started reading it too. A lot of you. So many of you, in fact, that as of today this blog officially has over one million page views.
A million. 1,000,000. ONE FUCKING MILLION.
Never in a million years (hardy har har) did I ever think that my blog would be viewed a million times. I'd like to thank each and every one of my readers for keeping up with my teeny tiny little corner of the internet and spending a little bit of your valuable time with me sharing my experiences. It is a true honour, one that I wish I could repay somehow.
To everyone bothering to read this, please leave a comment telling me where you're from. As always I welcome any email (firstname.lastname@example.org), even if it's just a few lines to let me know you were here. Stories are even more appreciated, and pictures with your stories are almost sure to be published at some point.
Once again, thank you.
