    congrats to my son

    My 22 year old son is in school to become a puter graphics tech. This is his 2nd year and he was picked to go to states for a design he made in school. There was only 5 kids picked in his field to attend.That's state wide. Well he didn't get gold or 1st, but he did come in a respectable 3rd place. i thought that's not bad for a kid that has never had a lot of self confidence. He's also been asked to go to nationals as a judge. Just had to share that as a proud dad.

    Thanks all, he's just about 1 hr away as i type this. Just texted us and now we better go get him. May take him out to a good stake house for supper if he's up for it. I'll let him read this when he gets here, so he knows there's a bunch of great folks that care, besides his old mom and dad.

    Big pat on the back to him from me. As another student, I know how good it feels to be selected for stuff like this.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
