Tonight the bouncer biker guy is doing double duty.
He asks if he can remove the dead soldiers from our table. I have often referred to empty bottles as dead soldiers, but it seems odd when it comes out of the mouth of a guy that probably has a POW/MIA flag proudly hanging over his couch.

Destiny engineer-

Mquest Jr has been taking Karate classes. It is rather comical to watch the children do their own thing while the teacher attempts to keep control. The teacher does a good job of keeping calm.

The class has given me a great opportunity to take pictures.

I am back

Hello all-
Life is moving quick.

A few weeks ago I broke the camera. I was able to borrow a replacement camera to tide me over. The nice people at cannon have fixed it and they claim it is in the mail. The lesson is that I need to have a back up camera. (enter dream mode)
