Well today is my 45. It’s been many interesting and wonderful years. I am heading out to the shop to make my wife a new kitchen. Yellow birch and Eucalyptus Burl built in a Green and Green style.

I’ll keep you posted.

45 years… almost as many years as I’ve been on this planet!

Congratulations to you and your special lady.

(Going out to build her a kitchen as a present.. sounds like you are going to whip one up this afternoon. Oh wait – it’s Karson we are talking about. I think he can do it!!)

May your next 45 be filled with bliss :)

Hi Buddy;

Congratulations to you and the little lady. 45 years? I’m thinking of quitting after only twenty!

I can’t wait to see the kitchen after seeing the wood and your sketches.

Should be beautiful.

Congratulations Karson. 45 years is a long time. I would have to live to 85 to be married that long!

Well done, Karson. 45 is not to be taken lightly—I had to restart my clock a few years ago, and wouldn’t wish that on anyone. Keep running the race!
