That’s All Folks

I wrote the first post to this blog back in the summer of 2010, and that was 242 posts ago!  I don’t know about you, but I certainly had no idea back then that it would take me this long to get out from under all that Pony business.  The blog has been so many things to me over the years that it is now as hard for me to let it go as it was to see the Pony itself go down the driveway for the last time.

This blog has served as my diary, my means of venting and crowing, a lifeline (for the Pony and me), a place to write things and share thoughts that would otherwise have just stopped inside my alleged brain.  You know, if a tree falls in the forest…if a thought stays within a brain.  I’m sure there were times when you thought, ok, he didn’t need to share that!  Remember my ill-fated attempt at shaving my butt?  Now that was an idea that should not only have stayed within my brain, but certainly should not have been acted upon.

When there wasn’t enough Pony news to write about I digressed to just about any time, place or subject, even to poetry.  But mostly the blog was about human connections,  staying connected with family and friends, rejoicing in old friends refound, and in new friends drawn-in, and sometimes having to mourn those who were lost.  And since all of this was the Pony’s “fault,” it is only fitting that I close the blog out with a slide show featuring him.  Be sure to click “full screen,” when the video shows-up, and when it’s over you can hit your browsers “back” button to return here.

The Pony Years, 2010-2017

My very profound thanks to you all, not just for reading, but for having been a part of my life, and for having been the best reason to have done this.

    Mr Bruce I have enjoyed all these post. John and I truly enjoyed meeting you and The Pony and yes our Pony still has yellow tire rims. You helped John with some issues we had with ours. Good Luck to you and The Princess on your move back home. God Bless and keep in touch.

  5. Hi Bruce, I once again read your blog with interest. I really never followed up after you purchased the hitch from me but it looked exceptional on the finished Pony. I am so glad you donated the Pony to a good useful cause.

    My intentions were to invite you and your Pony to the National Massey Show being held this fall near Asheville, NC. You are still welcome to attend even without the Pony and the fact you are moving. It will be one of the largest Massey events ever held in N.C. It would be great meeting you and providing an opportunity for you to see some other new projects you might want to start in Philly!!

    Good luck in you new adventures and always have fond memories of putting a piece of history back to work for another generation o enjoy!

    Thank You!!
