                  Congrats, Bill. It finally happened to me too a little over 2 months ago. The little guy is a little boring right now because all he does is eat, sleep, poop and flatulate. I am looking forward to when he can fit into a life jacket and hold a snoopy pole. I'm also glad everyone is doing well. She is a little blessing from Heaven.

                  I'm going to visit our local religious book and gift store this afternoon and show them a couple projects. Wish me luck.

                  Take care and enjoy.

                        Congratulations! Nothiing beats being a Grandpa. It's the reward for putting up with teen-agers.

                                I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                                No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
