Thanks to all our viewers who made this milestone possible, it's hard to believe we've come this far.
For years the Duke had been sending me well-researched emails about things he'd found at thrift shops, garage sales or along the road somewhere. I most always found them interesting and admired the effort put into them. They accumulated in my inbox, as I couldn't bear to delete them.
The idea of storing them somewhere more permanent appealed to me and I liked the idea of sharing them in a blog. I wasn't sure what I'd be able to contribute but I converted a few of his emails to posts and gingerly inquired his thoughts on the matter. Fortunately, he enthusiastically to not only allow me to process his emails, he volunteered to contribute directly and has done so- to the tune of two a day- which I felt I had to at least somewhat equal.
So, from February 2011 till today we've made 5060 posts, mostly of old rusty mechanical things and content from forgotten old books.
Amazingly, lots of people have actually stopped and looked at them! Thanks to all!
The Duke and Mr. G, taking a well deserved break between posts.
