2013 in Review


After looking over the past year I realized I did a lot more projects than I thought. I tried to load a video of projects done in 2013 but it was taking way too long.  So I deleted it and decided to post the pictures instead.  I have also shared my best tool pick for 2013 and wrapped it up with a short summary of the year.

To wrap up my memories of 2013; I was laid off after 24 years of service with former job, hired nine weeks later at current job, my son graduated college with honors, my daughter accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and was awarded Percussionist of the year, and I had some heartbreak, lots of laughter and joy, and blessings that are beyond monetary worth.

Though I couldn't always see it while living through it, looking over last year I now see it was overall a good year.
