    Time flys

    Seems just a few short weeks ago, I posted I felt old, when my oldest daughter got her driver licence. Now today she graduates from High School. I guess I am getting old, after all.

    On a side note, we had to have our chocolate lab put down this morning as well. He had a large cancer mass in his belly area.

    Bitter sweet day for sure.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Losing a dog is real hard. Sorry Steve.
    But if you want to feel really old wait until you become a grandpa

    Congrats to your daughter

    Steve better days are ahead. Sorry for the loss.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Just shows you've been having fun.... my baby boy will be having his next birthday in about 3 weeks... he'll be 41.... seems like just yesterday I was holding his mothers hand as she was in labor at the hospital.


    Sorry about the puppy... I'm sure it like losing one of your kids.
