    Hey friends!

    It's been while since I've been here. It's nice to see that some familiar names are still posting.

    For those that know me... There have been many things going on. I have been absent because life happens. Here's the short list:

    I'm still doing the same job, but working from home for the most part.
    I moved to Texas. 9" of rain helped the yard, thanks to Harvey.
    My wife and I are less than 2 weeks away from having a bouncing little boy.
    I built a cradle from a Cypress tree that fell at my FIL's ranch.
    I'm building a crib out of the same.
    I'm selling my Audi TDI (scandal payout) and buying my wife a truck.
    My Dad passed on my birthday.
    I have 10 new rifles/pistols (the rest will be auctioned off).
    My wife agrees with me building a shop.
    I got drunk one night and mowed over a tomato cage and have to sharpen the blades and replace the belt. (I still want to know what that thing was doing in the yard)

    That's about it. I can't promise I'll be back on a regular basis, so many projects and so little time.

    It's been a wild ride for a while...

    Live for the day, because you never know...

    Poke your head in from time to time and let us know how you are doing. I know work, life, and kiddos take a lot of time. Glad you did check in though, like Runfiverun said, it's been fun lately.

    Glad you checked in, and welcome back Stephen.
    Been a wondering about you.
    Have not seen many posts, since the wedding and big move.
    Sounds like you have been busy baby making. ;)
    That fancy Audi would not look right with a baby bag, and baby seat. :p
    Sorry to hear about your Dad. I guess there wont be a canoe trip this year either.

    Keep in touch buddy.
    As you know, I am still praying for you.

    The fancy Audi would look great with a baby bag, but because of the diesel scandal, I can get a really good down payment for a truck for it. I also have dad's car.

    The canoe trip is on hold for a while. But I am more than happy to have a little boy that I can teach all that stuff to.

    Thanks for your prayers! They worked!

    I had two Audis in my lifetime. Years ago I had an Audi 200 turbo and it was a nice car and lasted me quite a while with it's unusual 5 cylinder engine. More recently, I tried my luck with an A4 and it was a real pain in the neck. Every time I turned around, I was dropping 500 to 1000 dollars into it and it went bye bye toward a new Chevy pickup.

    By the way, thanks for stopping by and keeping us up to date.

    Here's the little dragon... These 3D ultrasounds are a blast. Got to watch him yawn and play with his toes.
