Well, the Neverending Story of my stair project is apparently close to ending. I've made some progress as of late. I finished the finish. I finished the trim. I finished the paining. I just have a couple of spots to touch up and add one more baluster on the right hand side and IT IS DONE!!!!! I was so excited that I am almost done with this project that I started painting the basement family room. I had a little water damage from a garbage disposal that failed covertly. I decided to repaint the entire room just so that it would look nicer. I think I will also replace the light fixtures in it. It still has the old 40W fluorescent fixtures. I also bought a large twisted cherry tree for the back garden. I guess that means I will order soil this week so that I can get the plants in the backyard in the ground. I have to get these project done while I have the energy and motivation (well, at least the motivation - I think I have the energy until I start and the first time I bend over and stand back up again I think that I'm done for the day). But in spite of myself, I am finally getting some of these overdue projects completed. Yeah!!!
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
