    A couple of gloats

    Been on vacation this past week. Our son came to visit after his 10 1/2 month deployment and brought his "fiance", which they announced they were married, so we've got a new daughter-in-law. She's from here also, so my wife is ecstatic, a little bummed we didn't get to go to the wedding, but ecstatic.

    My daughter also had her sonogram this week and we are going to have a grandson. So looking forward to having an apprentice around the shop in the future.

    So cool. Congrats grand pa
    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.
