    Will Florida ever be the same?

    Let's hope Florida can recover ------- Larry and Tom are visiting the Florida Space Coast.

    Had a nice visit today with them and their Wife's.

    Pictures will follow but National Inquire has first rights to all evidence.

    Gave them a demo of what a laser can do. Larry is churning over many possible laser ideas in his mind.

    Little do the fish up around the Cape know what is in store for them tomorrow.

    I forget what they were looking for but I heard them mumbling something about "Great Whites!!!"

    Laser Work

    It's official Larry andd Tom are Laser Engravers.

    With some coaching and only one small fire they engraved their own round ( Florida Version).

    Looks like good times
    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.

    What do you mean for his age? The guy's only 47 years old.

    Glad to see you all got to meet up. Pete's on my list of "want to meet" people for sure. If I ever get down his way I'll definitely try to make that happen.

    Poor fishies...they won't know what hit 'em.

    Man these Michiganders sure get around. And they were quick to get out of town and dodge the weather.

    See what Miami Herald had to say about these Yankee travelers
