    Hi Weldress - pics from Cat

    I don't know if you are still reading your old thread so I'll start a new one. I'll try to attach some pics and see if it works. Cat
    These are gates, a kinetic sculpture and a "handstand kid" sculpture with fused glass legs (I think that's what I put in).

    Great!

    It just about goes without saying, that those are great projects.

    Hi W - Thanks for the nice words. I haven't tried the photo resizing yet-it's on my list of things to do. Cat

    Hey, Cat!

    Your work is wonderful...I have been away and when I got back I found your thread by chance...I am glad to hear from Dabar how to make photos smaller so I can send more too..I'm on dialup as well and it is a drag. But I managed to get your shots and the whimsical feel and excellant welding combine beautifully. Thank you.

    Cat,
    sorry, didn't mean to say H3. Guess it was on my mind since there was an accident in the morning, almost made me late for work. I meant H-Power...

    Yeah real reasonable, but the rest of the job wasn't too cheap. We might be getting over to the islands next year, my wife has been bugging me almost weekly for another trip ... I was there several times in the 60's (VN stuff) but mostly just passing through. I was raised in SoCal so I do miss the beach big time, but SoCal has gotten so bizare I don't care to live there anymore.

    George - I can't believe that you are that much cooler than us. the monsoons are just starting so the temps should come down and the humidity go up. I just have to get my mind set and get out there working (it helps right now that i'm not working on any projects with deadlines but that won't last). airconditioning and heat - what a treat that would be! what kind of work do you do? Cat
    Work , well since you asked ... 20 years USAF retired, 5 years owner of a re-upholstery company, back to UNM for a IT degree then 17 years manageing the data center for ABQ public schools, real retirement last 5 years or so. Currently doing a ground up restore on a 1978 VW triple white convertible, as for welding mostly just for friends and family, don't charge (that way there is mostly no compliants), oh yeah ... I get to do some product testing for Hobart when they let me. Good life, you bet. One other thing, we are at 6800' just east of town, at this altitude it's normally cooler than in the city and valley.

    I am trying to train my Border Collie, Bandit to do that very thing. He is smart but keeps bringing me milk instead of the Fat Tire I ask for. I think my good wife got to him first .

    Cat, awsome! Big Island is my favorite also! Kauai is my wife's...Our dream is to live in Hilo with a 3 or 4 acres, so the grinding noise won't bother the neighbors...but not enough work in Hilo/Puna area...I'm in the Ironworker's Union working at the Chevron plant in Cambell Industrial. Got intrested enough to go back to college, got almost straight A's in computer degree, didn't love it, did 2 years welding degree, joined the Ironworker's Union, they put me doing the glass in the new high rises in Waikiki. Just started at Chevron almost 2 months ago. Now I'm actually welding all stick. Will be doing the H3 shutdown in August I think, they MIG everything there so I hear.Love doing this more than glass...

    Hi Bert - we've been to all the islands but big island is our favorite. we really love mauna kea beach hotel (when we can afford it) but have tried a few others. sometimes we just go to oahu to visit sandy beach, eat at the poi bowl (i love kalua pig), drive to the north shore, and just revisit our old haunts. used to get together with friends from pearl but everyone's kind of scattered now. i'm guessing we will have to head back next year now that you have me thinking about it....
    what kind of work do you do?
