    Cool goblet, Chuck. And you're quite the redneck seamstress for a Yankee.

    Toni, several years ago I had to wear a plastic full body brace for 18 months (the result of a broken back). I wore it under my clothing, and a lot of people didn't know I wore it. If you didn't know me, you might not notice that I had more of a barrel chest than I usually did. There were a few times at my office or at other gatherings when I would staple a piece of paperwork or a picture to my chest as a practical joke. The people who knew I was wearing a brace would get a good laugh, and those who didn't know just thought I was crazy. At one New Years Eve party at a friend's house, the friend (who had already seen me staple thing to myself) gathered a few kids together and said "Come watch this." He grabbed a staple gun, calmly walked up to me, then fired about 5 staples into my chest. I just stood there and smiled, and the kids screamed and went running out of the room. (We did eventually let them in on the trick, so they wouldn't try it at home.)

    I wish I'd known that you were supposed to put something under your shirt before you staple it Mine still stings when I pull 'em out.

    Hi Chuck. You get the somewhat duboius honor of being the first pictures I'm looking at with the new monitor. WOW I can see everything!

    Love the little goblet.

    The only comment I'll make about your sewing is that I HOPE THAT IT WAS NOT NECESSITATED BY AN ACCIDENT!
