This past year has started off with the deaths of mine and my wife’s Mothers, one of my Aunts, and my wife’s cousin. So, yeah this year has sucked. On the upside though, I have a new lathe and a new position at work. I look forward to 2015 being the year that I expand my horizons with turning and carving.

I want to thank my lovely bride for hanging in there with me and helping me to deal with the events of this year. I also want to tell her that I will always be there for her as well. 2015 we celebrate 15 years of wedded bliss.

My Mom has always taught me to reach for my dreams, 2015 I am going to stretch myself to reach for my dreams of having my “hobby” start making me some money.
