      Sorry to hear that Mark. We did this for a pet bird a few years ago- my daughter still has the ashes.

      I'm very sorry Mark. A kindred loss is never easy. Blessings and condolences to you and your family.

      Sorry to hear about the loss of your cat. Having had and lost 8 cats over the 40 years, I'd like to say it gets easier but it doesn't. I'm sure there is a kitten at your SPCA just waiting for you to bring it home. Hang in there!

      When you post about slowing down; that means you are going to fire the 42Cf once a week instead of twice?

      Nice. I haven't been fishing in ages. I used to crappie fish on the river every year when season struck. Nothing like sitting on a tree going into the river and catching a bucket load of fish.

  21. Gallery orders came in yesterday and I'm digging out the stuff. It's rained over 2 inches in last 25 hours

      We're having a "warm" day today (ha, 38F), and the two feet of snow we got this winter is turning into a slushy, muddy, slippery nightmare. The water is flowing down the streets in rivers... it's blech!!

      Enjoy your time off. Maybe, when you are doing your dives, you could find one of those multi-million dollar shipwrecks...

      alabama

      Back in the 80s I was the researcher for a amateur underwater salvage co. and ran across an article on à California shipwreck. It crashed into the rocks along the coast and was sinking. Someone went by the office to find the purser stuffing his pockets with gold coins from the safe. He told him hey, you can't swim with all that money! I know that, all my life I wanted to die rich...nows my chance!
