  • Happy Parents' Day Puzzle

    So I woke up early this morning to a surprise.....both the kids decided to declare today "Parents' Day" and spent the week secretively creating hand made gifts. I heard my son shuffling around the house a bit after 6 AM, so I figured he was up to something. When I went to check, he ordered me back to bed, else I'd ruin the surprise. A few hours later, the table was all set for breakfast, there were streamers and balloons up (the balloons were limp, since the kids tried to "tie" them shut with tape, since both were unable to knot them, LOL), "Happy Parents Day" signs, and other goodies. It was a great surprise, and really made my day. My son even washed my car a few minutes ago!!

    Anyway, here is one of my gifts. The kids painted cardboard puzzle pieces, and put something they like about me on each of them. Talk about a tear jerker! I haven't had much time to post on the forum the past few months, so I thought I'd share this with everyone.

            That's the part of parenting that our parents don't tell us about - when it's fun - it is really really fun. Sometimes life just don't get any better than that!

            Happy Parent's Day!

              Thanks, guys......the kids are great, and I'm really proud of them. "Parents' Day" was fantastic.

              Now......I'm wondering if there is a hidden agenda......I've been hearing mutterings of how there should be a "Kids Day."

                  Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                  Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                  Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                  Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                  I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                  Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
