Thanks guys! I'm doing OK, been keeping pretty busy on the farm, plus Hannah came to OH for awhile. Once she's done helping out at her aunt's place she's gonna try to spend July with us. Her family is a bit on the weird side, I think that's why Jack would come down and hand me the phone and say here talk to her, and he'd go make a sandwich or something. Other times he'd put her on speaker and we'd all sit and talk and laugh. I think he wanted her to know what a close family was like, that and he wanted us to know & love her too. So we pretty much adopted her, I had bought Jack a stripped AR and parts kit that we never put together. Me & her are gonna build it and I'm giving it to her, she's big on hunting & fishing, and every 17 year old needs an M4 gery. Especially the way the country is going now, I did check with her dad first and he's cool with it. My heart breaks for her, they had their plans all made, they planned to get married right after graduation and head west. So all her her dreams came crashing down. She's young and should move on in time, we're just trying to help her get over everything.
I feel for you. We went to the cemetery and gave the boy some flowers on Saturday. Hard to believe it'll be 6 years next month. Time takes some of the sting away, but I still don't feel that's a wound that ever completely heals.

Yeah I went up and watered some flowers that one of his friends planted, hope the monument gets here before Hannah heads back home. I don't figure that wound will ever really heal. We raised Jack as a Christian and after talking to his friends he was truly a believer. Having that faith and believing in the resurrection is the thing that helps us deal with it.
I get on his YouTube page now and then, usually good for a laugh.

That right there makes my heart very happy.

Agreed....I honestly feel for people without the resurrection hope. Without that, it is just a total loss when you lose a loved one.

So check this out.

I think this is going to be our new signage.
All of my new cabinets have under lighting on the lip. And we are backlighting all of our signs.


Large Restroom logo. These will fill an 8x8 wall.


Our existing cooler signage is 2nd photo.




And then if I can explain this right. The 3rd photo round restroom sign.
Our new signs will be rectangle and say the same thing as current in a more modern font. But they will be lit and displayed like the restroom sign. Where they are worded, soda, beer, etc will be lit like the man is, and the edges will glow the same.

I see where youre going with everything. The signs do need an update. I like the backlit idea. Once cali is not so locked down id like to take a trip that way and enjoy some coast line. Gonna hit yellowstone next week. I havent been there since single digits and my wife never has. Looks to be a decent week to do it in.
