That you really do great work and inspire me so often.I sometimes get a little depressed when weeks turn to months and I don’t get to do much then I have a good little spell when I have a few hours doing things like today. I am always made feel as a brother to you great men and women here and your workmanship is so nice it always inspires me.I love you guys, you have to be reminded your simply the best.I have been to USA many time though not recently and alway loved the friendly faces of the peoples I met there with my wife and children too.I ask you to pat yourselfs on the back in these difficult times along with us here in the uk and remember we are brothers and sisters alike and we do a lot for each other quite rightly so.I wish I had the skill of some of you guys-n-gals but I aspire.And that will have to do .Brotherly love your old pal Alistair in Scotland

Thank you Alistair and the same to you. I have a little Scot blood in me. My son plays the bagpipes and tin whistle, which always makes me feel a little more connected with my roots. All the best to on this Easter weekend.

Hello Alistair,
Thanks for the compliments. Many on here do deserve those nice words…..and not all are from the US, either.
BTW, I really like your new avatar….especially your little partner! That little one sure is a cutie.

Thanks Alister,
We have lots in common! Remember, we are only separated by a common ocean and a language! I miss my wonderful years living in the UK. God bless you all. Happy Easter.

Thank you!

I also get into the same type of rut… and certain things happen… giving me a shot in the arm, so to speak.

It’s Universal! LOL

Have a good one!

Thanks for the compliments. One of these days I may make to your side of the pond. I do run into some of your countrymen up in Canada from time to time, always a pleasant experience.

Thanks Alistair, Although I am in the US I get more inspiration from the site than I could possibly give. I do know what it’s like to have a body that doesn’t always let me do what I want. I wish you all the best. Enjoy those close to you for life is short.

You are a class act Alistair. I wish I had the wherewithal to visit you to shake your hand and give you a big hug ! For you certainly are deserving of it. Your expression of comradery and brotherhood was elegant and greatly appreciated. This old disabled Veteran wishes you the best, and isn’t afraid to tell the world how proud he is to know you. I think of you as a good friend .

Thanks for the fine words. I’ve travelled a bit, and well, you don’t always hear nice things about Americans.

Having visited England and Scotland, I must say that I felt absolutely like I was in the United States, just totally welcome and comfortable. I think it is much easier to feel comfy if the language is the same.

Thanks for saying something that is easy to take for granted…......have a good Easter…....
