Since last I wrote anything here, life has been interesting. On May 1st, I had surgery on my spine to correct some herniated discs, gifts that kept on giving from my Army days. Following that, I had some repairs done to both eyes (one more than once). With all the potential for disaster, I have to say things came out okay, and I am working as much as I'd like.  Actually, as much as you would like me to. I have all sorts of ideas for new projects and fun stuff to make as I prepare to move into leather work full time.  I would love to hear any ideas or comments.  Feel free to contact me at  - Steve
