Congratulations Mark. And thanks Karson for noticing this. It would have slipped past me.

Mark I have enjoyed both your commentary and your projects. Keep them coming.

—-thank you for re-minding us Karson;

And as all-ways, keep those hands busy Mark….working all that wood and for your belief in a God who counts woodworkers as one of His own best works….

Thank you.

nice to see someone is keeping track of what’s going on here Karson! I don’t think I would have caught that milestone… and I certainly wouldn’t have thought to add in the leap year day!

Thanks Karson. You have been a good friend, not just on the computer, but by phone, and personal visit. Our lives have been enriched with your generous heart, hardy hugs, prayer, and compassion for my family, and myself. We all deeply appreciate you and your family that you brought along to spend time with us. My only regret is that we are so far apart by miles that regular face time is not possible. I’d enjoy being your neighbor, and that says a lot about who you have been to us.

I needed this today after a hard weekend on LJ.

thanks to the rest of you for weighing in. It brought me a much needed smile late tonight.
