Yeah, We get the message you overachiever
Nah, just well trained,,,to do as I am told or get to do updates on that doghouse instead. By the way last weekend she got a bigger box of Milk Bones for me. She told me the reason for this is that they seem to never go bad either. :shock: Isn't that nice of her, already thinking about my health when shopping.
By the way, I see your lovely has allowed you to live for another year. So in return, go forth now and finish her boat! :lol:

Happy Birthday Chip!

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip!

Thanks Warren,
First class is a blast. :D

Did a mock up with the sides tonight. I even set the deck in place to see how it looked. Only the sides are wired together at the bow and stern.

Guys,
My youngest son helped me finish knitting :lol: the KidYak sides and bottom last night. While doing so he started talking about wanting a new video camera for Christmas. He then ask me what I was going to do next. I explained how I was going to tack glue tonight, remove the wires tomorrow and do the larger fillet. He left and before I knew it was back with his small flip camera. I'm posting this video to show off his work, not my mess. I sat and watched him do his editing and I was amazed. Guess who is getting a new video camera for Christmas. :D He first used the song "Where the Boat Leaves From" by the Zac Brown Band as his audio, but due to some copyright issues :roll: he had to change his audio.

Thanks Warren

Steve,
Not only can I knit :wink: , but when my wife was pregnant with our oldest son I helped her do the needlepoint work on the blanket and pillows for his crib. :D I found it quite relaxing and rewarding. One buddy started to make a smart comment about my needlework until I informed him that I felt I was good enough with a needle to sew his mouth shut. :shock: :wink: :lol: He didn't say no more. :roll: I haven't done any embroidery work before. Do you happen to give lessions? :D

Well, the film maker joined me again tonight and as any proud Dad I can't help myself. :D
