    That is some beautiful work, Lee. That treasure chest is awesome.

    The tortoise box and the early work for your wife are my favourites. They are incredible. All of them are. Very well done, Lee

    Thank you all for the kind words. Adds to my store of nice memories.

    Though I would take exception to the talented bit Abby There are many misleading words and I think talent is one of them. One person may be better able to do something than another, physically or mentally, and inclinations vary considerably, but it's desire and tenacity that facilitate accomplishments. Of course a little OCD doesn't hurt

    In appreciation,

    Hi, Lee. Talent is only as good as how you put it to use. I wrote a thing on "pride" not too long ago in the prose area and this is a corollary to that. Basically, it is a sin to take pride in a talent, but not to take pride in a work. I have design talent but physical limitations that prevent me from executing what I see. I created my logo for my business but had to pay someone else to clean it up and put it on business cards for me. Maybe I'll post some of my GIMP work here at some point.
    Dream big, fight hard, live proud!

    Ok I will re-phrase that then, you are seriously talented at wood carving!! And you can have desire and tenacity in abundance, but it won't give you talent, that is something you either have or you don't. I can tell just by looking at that exquisite rose for example, that I could never make that in a million years, although I am very tenacious and creative. We all have our talents
