You know, I started blogging 14 years ago to blow off steam basically. I have several blogs on different platforms that are still around, I just don’t post on them. One of them was the original Ornery Bastard on the Blogger platform, first started in March of 2006 and still there.
If you ever wondered what a pissed off drunken Phil rant looks like, there are a few epic examples still smoldering away over there in the archives somewhere, you will just have to dig to find them.
That’s when I was still pretty much a drunken Libtard and where all of this started.
It actually got rather popular and was once even linked to with a two word hyperlink by the Wall Street Journal.
Heady times boy, I’m telling ya. There aren’t too many Red Neck Mechanics have those kinds of bragging rights I’d wager.
One time I got an Email from some outfit that wanted to put some advertising up on the blog and it was a Bumper Sticker outfit. In exchange I got a couple hundred free custom bumper stickers.
I screwed up and had them put the web address on them at the bottom so I just cut that part off an have been slowly giving them away ever since.
I sent a couple clear to fucking Austria once to my Blog buddy Notwende.
Imagine my surprise when he posted a picture of the back of his vehicle after that journey through about half of Europe when he finally got where he was going and highlighted one of the bumper stickers I has sent him!
I just cracked up laughing!
How cool is that?
You have a good time my friend and don’t worry.
I’ll pick up some of the slack tormenting our mutual friend Cederq and you can take a break and enjoy your vacation.
