    Nice interview Robert. I'm glad to know some more things about you. I'm like you I needed the extra bonus points, but failed to get them either!!

    One thing, thanks for making the streets a safer place to live. That goes to all service people!!! No matter what other people say, there are many of us out there grateful to you all of what you do!!!!! THANKS!

    Great interview Robert! Thanks for the laughs. Just for that, I just might let you in on the secret of the Alumiburl bowl finish.

    Truly entertaining interview Robert! As the others have posted, thanks for all you do to make things safer out there. I now know your stand on ice cream, and Moxie, but I'm still a little confused about your position on grits.

    Hey,

    I just wanted to thank everyone for the kind words and the support. I got knocked out of the loop this week with unexpected elbow surgery. Of course, my last night at work before elbow surgery, I got in a fight with a fleeing felon type person and ended up tearing my MCL. (ligament in knee) I am sure that the Lord is trying to get my attention about something. I just hope I figure it out before I don't have any limbs left! Retirement sure is looking good right now!
    Once again, thanks for the support and encouragement in my woodworking endeavors. Anyone is welcome to drop me a note if I can ever do anything for them.

    Robert
