Well now, Abe--That is special. Congratulations on the well deserved recognition. Probably you've been just flooded with lucrative sponsor and endorsement offers. I'd get an agent right away! LOL.

I received an email from LMC about this write up.

Congratulations Abe on your gorgeous truck! Is that your 15 minutes of fame?

Thanks Nick! I didn't know My Story was on their website. I sent that in months ago and had forgotten about it. Thanks for sharing.

I guess it is.

But there is more. When I read Nick's post tonight I at first thought he heard something about me from some soccer people I know well in Berks county, where Nick lives, which is next to my home county of Lancaster. This January I was inducted into the Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Hall of Fame. So maybe I have 30 minutes!

Congrats Abe on both the article and the coaching recognition. In both cases, when you do things right it's fitting that you get at least your 30 minutes.

Abe,
Well deserved I'm sure. And no surprise pretty modest about it as well.

Guys, thanks for the congrats and kudos. (What is a kudos, anyhow?) Its no big deal. Anyone can do it. Just go to LMC and fill out the form online and add pictures and send it in. There are trucks in there of all shapes and conditions.

Now if they pick yours for the feature in their print catalog then that's an accomplishment.
