Hey ya'll! Just wanted to give a quick post for today so I can keep you guys informed about some of what I got going on. It'll be quick so I can get back to fulfilling orders and spending time with my family and neighbors.
As many of you know, today is America's traditional birthday. We are now 240 years old as a nation. Happy birthday to us.
Many folks celebrate this day with fireworks, bonfires and BBQs. All stuff that has to do with fire. Gives me an idea for a celebratory art piece for next year but for this year I'll be completing orders and hanging out with my wife, kids and neighbors as we watch fireworks from our backyards. We got a pretty nice place here in that we don't have to go anywhere to get a good view of our local shows.
Anywho, I got some new products coming up that I'll be listing soon. One of which is my brand new PVC Sabers. I don't have a proper name for them yet. Maybe one of my readers would like to help with that?
The other new product that I am excited about and keep hinting at is still undergoing testing. I've been making a new and heavier shield and sword for myself to help with testing but I have not finished those yet.
On another note: Cool news for animal lovers and motivators everywhere (especially in the U.S.).
Army veteran saves an eagle by shooting down the branch it was trapped on.
When I first saw the pictures I was concerned that he has tried to shoot the rope the bird was stuck on but was relieved to find that he shot the whole branch much further from the bird.
The reason I mention this to you is because I find it rather inspiring. The veteran had done the right thing by calling, was given an understandable answer but did not accept the fate of this majestic bird. Instead he took it upon himself to save the bird when no one else would. It is that kind of character trait to draws many young Americans to join the military and it is always great to see in people regardless of whether the are prior, active, or never in the military.
Alright, that's about it for today. I gotta get back to making things, like yummy garlic bread sticks.
Have a happy 4th of July!
