    Well what do ya know.....I was just thinking about you the other day, and wondering if the wall hanging (Japan relief project) you bought was still intact or did it fall again?
    Looks like you enjoyed your trip.....15 or 20 years is a long time, or is it? As they say "Time flies"

        thanks for thinking of me and yes the japan project is still hanging in its place of honor
        and 15 years is a long time except when you are looking back to the good old days then it seems that time does fly lol

        yes i had a real good time spent a little over a month there but it was nice to get home too saw first hand the prices you folks up north are having to pay for stuff (it is rediculas)
        i really don't see how anyone can afford to life there and yes i will start making saw dust if i can get this problem with gimp figured out lol and besides i just signed up for a show on 21 and 22 of this month so i have to get something made for me to show at it
        one of those dumb moves i guess is discribed as a brain fart

          Hi Erssel - glad to hear that you had a great reunion and thanks for the photo.

          You mentioned cost of things north of the border. I agree that being back in Mexico is definitely an eyeopener. Having just spent 9 months in Italy spending Euros I can certainly see a big difference in prices here south of the border. Don't forget though that when you factor in that most working Mexicans earn less than a quarter of the average American or European earns that kinda levels the playing field. Still, with a little money, plenty of sun, a few Sols or Coronas and a nice relaxed lifestyle is a not a bad way to spend your days.

          Hope you get settled back in to scrolling quickly and crack those pieces out for the show. Best of luck!

            I am happy for you Erssel. Glad you got to meet up with your sister & have a wonderful reunion. That is a very long time to go without seeing a loved one, so glad it worked out for you. Glad you are back home safe too. Good Luck with your show entries.

              Thanks jim:
              i did have a great time but it did make me realize even more of how much i like it here in mexico and hopefully with the new presidente maybe it will get even better the only thing that worrys me there is how the media said that a big part of his winning was because of how handsome he is and of course the fact that he is a lawyer doesn't ease
              my mind either ha ha oh and the fact that to me he looks as though he could be obamas
              brother too have you noticed the resemblance or is it just me lol

              thanks perk i hope to get a couple of differant things made for the show

                He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

                Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
