5 years with Big Blue

Today marks the 5th year anniversary of us seeing Big Blue for the first time. And it marks 5 years blogging here on this website. We have almost 1200 posts. It has been fun and at times, a drag, But the best thing is "meeting" all the folks who interact here and on the Facebook page. Thanks for the support and thanks for diggin' it. Here's a photo of what we first saw.



And here is a link to the first blog post we did.

And the email chain that got us in this mess:

Let's see how much $$$ it would take to fix it up and most of all, where that rust is and how much there is. We could go see it tomorrow if you want on our way out of town...perhaps you can leave a little earlier.

He emailed me back. It runs fine, but needs new tires as it has been sitting awhile, so he thinks it would need to be brought via flatbed to a tire shop. I'll email him and see if we can look at it...

Hard to believe it has already been 5 years huh? I've had the pig for over three years now... I love your blog, it is inspiring. I'm glad you still post.

The fifth is the wood anniversary. Does BB have any cabinetry that's needs attending? Or maybe some firewood for a campfire....

Alright,
Mitch.
