"I don't mind being behind when I get to review such gorgeous
relaxing, laid back, excellent sites such as yours. Makes it all worth
while. Welcome to the Proud Eagle family. So that you have some idea
of what this award means to me, I turn down about 8 or 9 out of every 10
that apply. I am, shall we say, picky about who get's to wear the Proud
Eagle, and because of that I feel that it means a whole lot more to
those that do get it. Your in some very good company now. So again, welcome to the family." Chiinkwia

an unique award which only you may receive!

"I happened upon the Goebel's Country Corner site last night and finally
finished it this morning. I was so impressed. Not often do I run across
a site that is such a joy to surf. THEN... I clicked on your link. Here
I thought I was finished and could get some work done but no..... I have
been here for over two hours and I am speechless. This is the best site
I have seen on the web yet. Trust me... I spend a lot of time surfing
and I don't recall ever running into a site not only so well done but so
interesting as well. Then I thought I was finished again and I hit your
Dad's pages. Well... I got thru Chapter two and I have to leave but
can't wait to get back and continue.
I would like to offer you our humble award. It's not often I find a site
that I offer our award without one crawling and begging but your site is
tops as far as I am concerned. I'm thrilled to have found it. " Chuck Stewart (Doc Gecko)
