Default Mother in law sign

Did this piece for my mother in law with my nephew's name. Since he's growing into a young man. Thought it wood be special to her to remind her of the boy he was walking down our old dirt road to go fishin' somewhere.

At a crossing point dilemma. Wondering of painting the letters. Wondering also about taking the torch to it and give it a light burn. Decision, decisions, decisions..... Gonna be pullin' my hair out for the hour. Wanting my wife to take it today, when she goes down to watch the grandbaby while everyone goes on their 4-wheeler run today.

Daylight decided to torch it and get 1st coat of clear on it.

Damn! Another guy that can paint. I'm starting to feel real dejection now.

Looks better than good BL.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Paints??? Who Paints? I just start spinning the board around on my finger like a pizza, throw some paint in the air and it just comes down this way...

If I did that the paint would miss the board entirely -- then Mama would....... I don't want to think about it. You guys that can that think it's just so easy and natural. Ain't so!!!!!

I think I'm gonna go join RainMan.
