First I Got Stoned. Then I Got Busted. It Couldn't Be a Better Day!


It is with this post that I reach the 500,000 point mark here in the Rain.

First I got stoned....

To commemorate this monumental moment, and much to my surprise, a monument has been erected in my honor....

What an honor! Move over Lincoln, Craig Rutman is taking your place!

Then I got busted....

As if that wasn't enough, and we all know it should have been, I join the 108 other 500K+ members in the ActiveRain Hall of Blogger Fame....

Craig Rutman, your Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Realtor is inducted into the Blogging Hall of Fame!

But this isn't about me! It's about you, my dear readers, and I want to thank you for giving me a platform with which to learn, market my services, share my creations, and spread some smiles.

Oh, and the car I received for hitting the 500,000 mark wasn't too shabby either....

Thank you!

Craig Rutman enjoying his new Porsche!

Okay, you win for most interesting blog to date!  You obviously know your way around photo apps...you lucky dog, you!  And they looked so REAL.

Great job, you deserve all of the accolades...monetary and otherwise.

Congrats on your milestone!  I was almost afraid to continue reading!  LOL  Since it is Valentines Day and it is such a big milestone I think they should double your points.  Whatcha think?

Congratulations on hitting the milestone. When I get there, I do not think I'll get busted--unless I get one of my kids to help me with the Photoshop.
