    Do you think she’s trying to kill me? This was presented while Brubeck’s Take Five played from her phone. I’m not even her father, but I am the father of her two sons. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! She also made cinnamon buns. Where did I put that insulin?

    Well a couple months ago I did a thing but knew it would be a good thing. Got an email it was finally sent early this week. After Mom passed yesterday I was sooo busy with my girls and my sister putting things together I was toast. Arrangements finalized this morning and my hot lil postal girlie showed with my LP. We had a few laffs about it and I was "on it." Worth the wait? Pretty amazing and they're gonna fly outta the bins and shelves. Yea, ya better jump if ya like Neil. Blues, jazz, laid back, just all kind of places. Thru it once and ready for another ride with a somewhat clear mind in the morning. Great shot of your system Paul. May your socks never wear thin brother! Thunderbirds huh... Thinkin I might have a couple of those. Hopefully I still do anyway!

    I never got to see Stevie Ray perform @oldtimer. But when I heard Jimmy was going to play a large nightclub east of town I scarfed a couple of tickets quickly. Polished my Nocona's got a hot date and they did not disappoint! It was a couple years after this came out.

    Having enjoyed seeing the many photos posted in the “Show Us Your Great Photography Thread,” I thought it would be interesting to see the absolute single best photo everyone has taken. As a rule, I don’t like rules but for this thread post only one photo (1x) - your very best photo ever. Feel free to edit and replace your photo as your opinion changes or if you capture a better image but one photo only. Feel free to comment but please only post your very best shot ever. I’ve posted this before but here’s mine - my once in a lifetime shot of the 2017 eclipse. I was able to find an isolated spot in the path of totality in an area near Shoshoni, Wyoming - not another soul on the horizon. Got the shot just at the end of totality for a “diamond ring” effect and hoping to see Baily’s beads https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baily's_beads. I was shooting bursts of bracketed exposures at 4 frames per second and the frame just before and the frame just after this one we’re not as dramatic - luckily, a split second at the right exposure made a big difference. The actual image is sharper and more detailed than what displays here.

    My father passed too early at 64 yo in 1988. He was a certified member of the Greatest Generation. At the tender age of 19 he was plucked from classes at Johns Hopkins University to become an instant Lieutenant in Army Corps of Engineers. After serving in France and Philippines he returned to Hopkins before marrying a war widow with a 2 yo daughter. At the age of 23 he had more life experience and maturity than I do today at 71. I miss him and I miss being able to wish him a Happy Father’s Day for the last 32 years. Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers, including those no longer with us.

    The ladies on the Portuguese side of my family live a long time ... I can't think of any that didn't make it into their 90s (except my Mom, who died at 33 but she was killed and didn't die from an illness). When my Grandmother died at age 94, her older sister was still alive and her younger sister went on to live to the age of 102. I was talking to an elderly Aunt one day and she was telling me the negative side of living so long. She told me how she had outlived all her friends and family that were her peers growing up. She had two friends still living and one was in such poor health that she could no longer go anywhere. She said she thinks of those that passed and can only ask "why am I still here?" She went on to live to be 93. My grandmother spent the last two decades of her life wearing all black and sitting in a chair by the front window -- she was waiting to die. She was old school Portuguese born and raised in the Azore Islands ... my Aunt told me that her generation and culture was that the woman's job in life was to raise her children and take care of her husband. Her kids were all adults and her husband had died, so in her mind, her role in life was over and she was just waiting for her end. Got some wonderful messages from my kids today -- very cool to hear how I impacted their lives for the better, even in stuff that I went through and they merely observed how I handled the crisis and how that was a good lesson that is helping them in life now. One of my daughters send me a Father's Day card and I opened it and it contained five crisp $100 bills. She wrote a note asking me to accept the gift and not send it back to them. She was grateful for all the times that I helped her and she said that God has blessed her life and she wanted to do something for me now. I think I have about five hundred one dollar bills here (I rarely use singles)... maybe I should send them to her for her birthday? have a good day folks.

    Yes, sorry to hear this Dave, she experienced more than any of us over her 96 years. We could all be that lucky. RIP It's never easy no matter what the age or how ready you think you are.

    There are several manufacturers of art glass. Some are made for stained glass, some for fusing and some for mosaics. They come in a surprising array of colors and textures. Some are consistently the same (predictable) and others are unique each time. It’s fascinating and challenging at the same time. It is very difficult to choose the best glass for a particular piece. I’ll rummage through our stock for days and can’t make up my mind. I’ll think I want ‘new’ glass instead. Then in the middle of the night you have an ‘aha’ moment and in 10 minutes the chore is done. You can buy glass online and we have just 1 specialty store and hobby lobby that sells the stuff locally. But our best ‘buys’ have been from stores going out of business or from people like us who decided to stop. Then you can get some amazing glass that’s old and no longer available. Another option is decorator window glass. Shower door glass is often patterned. Cutting glass into intricate shapes can be done with glass saws. Getting the pattern on the glass for the right ‘show’ in a way that stays visible while using a water saw is hard. Then you grind the piece for a perfect fit......... and you’ll have to accommodate space for copper foil and solder for it to look correct and fit the size. The garage is our workshop and it’s full. The wife did these 2. She does a lot of horses. I talked her into Frankenstein.
