All is well here. Hard to believe we've been in Folsom for close to 10 years now.

My business is going well. Primarily working with clients on efficiency and productivity. Lots of Evernote consulting work these days.

Samantha (everyone remember the "wallpuppy?) is graduating from college in May and has already started working on her Masters in Education. She'll be 21 soon.

Clay's still an Executive Chef. I'm sure he'd rather spend more time golfing or playing tennis rather than in a hot kitchen. Not sure which is harder on his knees.

I too miss the time we spent here. Facebook has its advantages but not sure it's made the world a nicer place.

Love to you all,
Kimberly

Good to hear from you Kimberly...Time flies doesn't it!

Of course everyone remembers Samantha, but it seems like only a couple of years ago that she was a young girl tagging along with you and "playing" with paint. Now she is a young woman pursuing a career.

Best thoughts from Shirl and I that she does well in her pursuits.

Regarding Clay's knee "pain"....welcome to old age!!! It sucks.... [Bash]

Kimberly,

It's hard to believe Samantha is 21 and graduating college. How come everyone else is getting old and I'm not?

Dave Grundy....great post. A real interesting read of what everyone is going through.

I sent out an announcement yesterday saying ‘Source Signs is Closing’...due to my husbands health.

I do not want to close, I LOVE WHAT I DO......
But life threw us a curve I can no longer ignore.
My husband bumped his head hard while helping a friend move heavy engines out of a low crawl space.....he suffered concussion, brain bleed, severe continual headache since the injury 1 1/2 years ago. Because of the brain bleed, mild Dementia is now apparent, he is very confused and can no longer look after himself or participate in everyday activities.

He needs a lot of care daily, so I will do what I can to keep him home and safe for as long as I can.

I have enjoyed 25 glorious years of doing what I love......I hope to attend future Walldog meets and Letterheads meets as I am able. I will still play with paint and art. I will always check in here and stay in touch with my Letterville And Walldog buddies....I love you all.

So sorry to hear that Susan. Did we meet him at the Picnic at the Ranch at Dan Sawatsky's back in 2006? Sophie and I enjoyed visiting with you and determined if we ever made it to Vancouver Island, we'd look you up. We haven't gotten there yet.

I'm so sorry to hear of your husband's injury Susan.

Being a caregiver is one of the toughest jobs anyone can have. I spent 5 years taking care of my mother before she was ordered to a nursing home by her doctor. It was tough to care of my mother and also run the sign business.

All of the best wishes for you Susan.

So sorry to hear this Susan. I hope you have some support to help get you through these times. Like Dave said, being a caregiver is a tough job. Don't be afraid to ask for help. I have a similar situation with a family member. I try to think positively. You never know what the future holds and miracles do happen.

Wow! It's been so long since I've been on this site. It's so nice that it's still here and good to see everyone (even though this is an old post).

We moved to Venice, Fla from eastern PA, in 2014 and are loving it. The outdoor lifestyle keeps us feeling young. I am getting into the "art scene" more so now than the commercial sign business. I did try to work for a couple shops but can't handle just "doing vinyl" and the cut throat pricing. I still have my Roland Camm-1 Pro and am set up. I've created a few custom carved home signs. I posted them on FB. (under Summit Signs) I need to update my website.

So for the first time I am going to get involved in a gallery group show. I am thrilled. Gearing up to display my work at a local show in November. It took me a couple years to figure out what direction I was going. It's a nice gallery with fun creative people and we will have our own booth. The Cottage, Nokomis, Fl. I am planning to get more into specialty carving, sculpting, artisian type of items, etc... I hope my specialty will become beautifully hand-carved and sculpted Home Signs.

I have so much to do regarding my website, marketing, etc... learning how to market on the web, etc... I have a 5 year plan. I started an entity of Summit Signs called "Seaside Creations". I was told that the Summit Signs name is too commercial. So, I just made my new post cards and have lots more to do. Was a little different in 1996 than now. hahah! maybe because I am older. hahah!

I have decided to work part time rather than full so that I can dedicate more time to this. $ is tight but we are living our dream here in Fla. Takes a good 3-5 years to get settled. Remodeling slowly, bulding our gardens etc... Patience is key.

It's been great reading about everyone. I remember when I started out back in 1996 before the internet....and then learning about Letterville, SignCraft, going to shows, etc... Was great energy. I can't wait to get back into really custom creating again. & meeting like-minded people. I went through a slump in the mid-2000s. Seemed $ went backwards with the invention of technology, had some family tradgedy, etc... but I feel I have a clear vision now of where I want to go with my future. I hope to learn new skills and one day leave all that I make to the Ocean Conservancey & a local animal shelter EARS in Englewood, Fl. Or maybe even if I am lucky enough to do something like Guy Harvey or Wyland does while alive. [Smile] I turn 50 this year so I have a little bit of time but I definatly feel the pressure of mortality. [Wink]

Best wishes to you all. You have been a huge inspiration to me! TY [Smile]

Sheeesh! What a blast from the past!

I decided to retire in 2012 after Marty died. (2 years of taking care of her had me completely worn out.)

Health is great except for arthritis on my hands and can't walk very well due to back problems. I spend my time in a wheelchair or electric buggy.I can do just about everything that I used to do when sitting.

I also have a "Nanny" ( hate the PC word "Caregiver")that comes in for a couple of hours every day to do the things that are difficult for me to do.

I still do shopping, cooking, go to restaurants, and shoot competition and reload my own ammo.

Sad to see all the old bunch pass away, but that what happens when you get old! ( will be 84 this month.)

Retirement is good . you should try it someday!

Si...Happy birthday in advance...I just turned 74.

I can't seem to catch up to you! [Confused]

I just talked to a good friend who got "downsized" in her job. She is now working 3 days a week and loving it at age 59. But she is seriously considering retiring at the end of the year and spending winters in Mexico close to where we live.
