    A friend of mine makes custom metal Christmas (yeah, I'm not afraid to call it CHRISTmas) tree ornaments. They are usually out of some sort of small twisted stock. Maybe do an intricate piece with her name in it or something. SSS

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    Default girl friend project

    hey if you are not married yet you are headed in the right direction/on page 3/ the grill to end all/by the fat kid/ the last picture of his rose just blew me away/ you said you have done roses before so how about a living steel Rose Bush that growes each time there is a special ocasion/ just put in a new stem or even a bud/you might even engrave the date or something to remember each by/if all else fails try the grill and some steaks and maby a beer for yourself/ just never forget the flower/this is how i got my BEAUTIFUL wife of many years ( yes she does read my emil)to go along with buying new welding equip/just built her a new steel 4x8 picnik table with an aluminum top this year for the deck infront of my shop/she eyed it and said it was a little larger than the old worn out wood one but looked nice/ she winked and said i have to get a bigger table cover but it looks like it will last this time thank you/ as she turned to go back to the house she ask oh! how is your layout table comming ?/**** they are smart!
    i may be dumd but not stupid there was a container of roses in the middle
    have fun and be carful

    Wink save the big stuff for welder needs

    i realy like the rose bush idea, but best to keep it simple. save the big stuff for when ya realy need it, ya know like when ya need a new welder or plasma cutter. just like patrick said if they get some thing nice out of the deal the new welders go over much easyer.
    its always best to blame the welder purchas no her gift, i just had to have the new TIG welder to nake that for ya honey, the old one just wouldnt go low enough or high enough to make it. l know it was expensive hon but i'll be able to use it on some other stuff to so dont feel bad about it ok.
