Doug is setting me up with a Terror Bird, a Monster from the Miocene, the Pride of Patagonia!

I'll keep you all posted on preparations for the Terror Bird Show.

Yours,

Paul

How often do you usually change the front page? I see a new pic just about every week or so.

Sometimes daily. Sometimes weekly. Sometimes monthly. Sometimes sometimes and sometimes when I feel like it which sometimes could be multiple times per day or when I have a new piece of art I like or a photo to put there...uh sometimes.

This has nothing to do with Hitler's Willie or Rats, BUT I just had to tell someone.
Today at the flea market a fellow offered me over $1000 for my Zibit.
Am I a showman or what?
I turned him down.
Am I a good guy or what?
My Zibit has been (literally) worth its weight in gold.
Doug, all I can say is thank you.
But now, you have made enough. Time to semi-retire.
I will have competition one day.
What will I do then?
I worked three hours today and made as much as many folk make in a week.
Life is good.
Now, I must admit that I pitch and "embellish" just a bit.
But I am having more fun on a consistent basis than I ever have before.
Peace,
Parson

OK, so you were offered 1000 dollars?

First you take the Thousand bucks
Then
You buy a new Zibit
After that
You've got some extra pocket change to buy something nice for yourself.

First: you turn him down
Then: You keep the mystery
After that: You love yourself

Just my thought about money and selling what your doing for a living.

I'm with Arkadia on this. The guy offers you $1000, you say, "Are you kidding? I can make that in one day of showing this at the fair! Besides, where would I ever get anything else as good as this?"

Yours,

Paul

UH...I'm definately with Brett on this one...that would be after sale and after you bought a replacement Zibit, pocket change of about $650...but Parson thank you for the kind words and the loyalty and the testimonial! The concept I came up with works like a charm. Speaking of Loyalty which rhymes with Royalty...I'll have the 'abreviated' story online today of what went on in the UK with my Zibits and the amazing journey of Ken Dean.

You might also have created a competitor, in the same market. It could go either way.

Funny thing Harley after many years and many many doing the show I haven't heard of one yet that crossed paths or did day and date with a competitor...quite odd me thinks but tis the way of it thus far. But you do have a point I reckon...in theory.
