Feed Sparkle!

You may have noticed that there are no annoying or ugly advertisements at this website or at my blog. No pop-up pleas for contributions. No annual memberships or renewal notices. Although the internet is a wonderous place with infinite thrills and information, things are not so free on my end. I drive thousands of miles each year gathering more photos. And Sparkle is a bit of a gas-guzzler. But with more than 380,000 miles on her, I wouldn't trade her for anything else.

Better than a book. Many of you have asked me when I'm going to write a book. Most likely, never. But feel free to send your publisher pals my way! It would be hard to squeeze a fraction of my photos into a single volume. Plus, I really enjoy having the ability to constantly update information and provide new photos when things change (restorations, remodelings, etc.). With more than 60,000 photos online and over 2,200 pages, I hope you appreciate the encyclopedic undertaking that I share with you and continue to pound away at, daily.

So, if you'd like to help with my travel expenses and the costs of operating this website, I'd very, very much appreciate it. No amount is too small - or too big. It'll bring you good karma, I promise. I won't hit you up for cash anywhere else at this website or through fancy bulk emails. If you like what I'm doing, maybe you might kindly drop some coins in the bucket once every year or two. Maybe think of it as a membership or subscription. The dogs and I are truly grateful for your assistance. THANKS!!
