Autographing the Bug
Thanks to everyone who autographed the Bug. I really enjoy putting together this slideshow of all your autographs. My goal is 1,000 Bug autographs by the end of June, so if you know others that would be willing to add their autograph to the Bug, please share this video with them. Distance isn’t a problem, because the Bug can be signed virtually or in person. Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted, too, as the autograph donations continue to raise money to complete the Bug.
(The video is lengthy. I hope the music and a few pictures will keep you entertained)
Some of you may be asking, “Will that Bug ever be done?” I know how you feel; I ask myself that question a lot too. However, I have narrowed it down to three final goals: heat, radio and bodywork (including paint). When I cross those goals off the list, she will be restored. All the major under-the-hood work has been completed. Of course, like any car she will need regular maintenance, but she will be good to go for a while. Where will we go? As soon as I know, you’ll know too.
I have discovered through the process of restoring the Bug that I like blogging, sharing what I am learning, and learning from my readers’ experiences. So I will blog on. If you want to receive updates on the progress of the June Bug and the fascinating musings of a soon-to-be Waldorf High School graduate, please subscribe by adding your e-mail to the box at the top of my blog or click the link at the bottom of this post and you will be receive an e-mail when I write a new post (I average about 2 posts per week). E-mails are never share and it is easy to unsubscribe if I bore you. If you would rather skip the e-mail updates, you are welcome to click back over at any time. As my mom is fond of saying, “I’ll keep the light on.” However, I don’t think she said it first.
My intent was to capture every autograph on the Bug in the video, but if I missed your name, please let me know and I will race out to the garage, find your name, snap a picture, immediately update the video and profusely apologize. And because I think blogging should be an interactive experience, if any of you are “counters” and would like to count the number of autographs we currently have on the Bug while you watch the video, I would appreciate it. It would be really helpful when someone asks me, “How many autographs do you have?” If I could tell them. And last but by no means least, I’d like to send out a big thank you to Vickie, who added all the virtual autographs in her beautiful handwriting.
My next update will be about muscle cars. I’ll share how I ferreted out an amazing family secret about one of my favorite muscle cars.
Thanks for going along for the ride,
