    Ha! That's impressive. He went to a lot of work to paint it, too.

    Reminds me of the two brothers-in-law who exchanged the same pair of pants back and forth over and over and Christmastime. Here's the story...

    That's cool. I need to send this to my oldest son Jonathan. He just finished up his 5 year apprenticeship with the local 602. Graduated #1 in his class of 180. Ya I can see him doing something like that.
