HI! I’m David Thrift. Welcome to my personal, and official website – MRDTHRIFT.com and thank you for visiting.

Until I can get around to writing a proper “About” page, here are just a few things about myself and this website:


This website was created so that I can post my art, craft projects in progress (primarily knit and crochet) (some for my store, and some for me), a future directory of useful and interesting websites, my ebooks, local links, and some of my photography. To sum it up, this website is about my interests. Remember that my interests may not be your interests, but I hope with all the work I put into this website, something of value will come to at least a few people. This website is also where you can link up with some of my more professional interests.


I was born in Kentucky, and raised in Alabama. I currently reside in Alabama. I will probably never leave. Can’t say that I don’t want to though sometimes.

My hobbies in a nutshell are photography (amateur), crafting, I’m kind of addicted to surfing the internet, and I love watching livecams (Earthcam & YouTube). I have two stores. One is DUDECAPZ BEANIE STORE, where you can purchase my hand-knit, loom-knit, and crochet hats. The other one is my MUDPIX OUTDOORS ebook store where you can purchase my photo ebooks that have collections of my outdoor photography. See the links below for these stores.

Below you can find some random content that I am featuring in my blog for a limited time period. This content is updated frequently.

TRAINS – Since Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021, I have been on a train kick. It started on Twitter when I decided to follow the #train, #trainspotting, and #railroad hashtags while working on my website, in hopes of seeing some cool train photography. This isn’t the first time I’ve been on a train kick, as I have enjoyed watching train ride videos on YouTube prior, as well as I love taking train photos when I get the chance, but this writing is my first real record of it. Below I would like to highlight some accounts on Twitter, and other links related to Trains that I think are interesting and that I recommend checking out.

William A. Hamlin – @SE_Railfan84 – Truck driver, PRO FREEDOM & train photographer. Be sure to check out his teespring store link. He’s got some nice train themed t-shirts, and hoodies.
