Just spectacular news about Laura. The carving is incredible. Great news about the show, I am sure you will find something to pass the time. Good news is always helpful in lean times. The story in the Calgary Herald was very well written and hopefully it pull in some customers, real nice.

Congratulations on all fronts, especially health-wise! Beautiful work! Do you do stoning to get the texture of the leather? Beautiful painting also.

Congrats to Laura for kicking cancer’s behind. Not once but 2 times. It is not pretty watching someone going through that. My mom just passed at 64 years of age this past March of stomach cancer and over the years so have 4 of my aunt and uncles. That’s 5 out of 8 children in one family with another uncle living with cancer at the moment.

As for the carving; incredible!
