    Okay, I'm in! Just got one question though - does the count include threads started in Asian? [​IMG]

    My guess for that Millionth Thread is 12/29/2015 at 7:00 am

    Do we get extra credit for knowing that it will either be NorthFLChick or Frindizzle with the magic Millionth Thread - and that it most likely be another fun photo contest?

    @Blooie I just read your intro thread and got to experience Kendra meeting the new chicks. I've heard the story before but reading it as it unfolded was wonderful as was getting to 'meet' Katie and Evan again for the first time. You have some fine grandkids!

    I don't know about the extra credit thing for the millionth post but I'm pretty sure we get extra credit for having you around!
