    That's an AWESOME pic!!
    Frame that one.

    As a self confesses greedy bastard when younger, I'm glad I have changed my ways.
    Allowed 3 youngsters to hunt my place ( MN youth hunt) even though I was 120 miles away.
    They had a blast. 2 kids shot each shot an 8 pt buck.
    3 kid missed a buck.
    Was nice too get a telephone call telling me thanks. The excitement in their voices was all I needed.

    I am thankful that I have a job. Layoffs happening at my current employer and I was lucky enough to make it.

    Hired a new rep for California, going to be awesome. Granted I will have to be in California a lot in this next year but sales are going to explode.

    After drinking many, MANY Oktoberfest beers this fall I've determined the best one comes from Bell's Brewery in Comstock, MI. Congrats.

    Interesting. My father was flight engineer on C-47 in the Pacific. He said he was more nervous on takeoff than landing.

    Well that was a little emotional, holding my little girls baby boy. What should I buy the lad first? A pocket knife or a hatchet? BB gun?

    But seriously, congrats! My first gun was a 22 at about age 4 or 5...never had a bb gun till I had kids of my own.

    One thing I was glad my Dad did for my kids, was he sent them a savings bond each year for their birthday. When they got to college age that $ was handy for books, cars, wharever...

    That is a great idea Bill, going to do that. Probably at zero interest right now but still a good idea.

    Invest the money in a mutual fund for them, it with be worth way more than a government-issued bond, especially if one of these democratic socialists gets elected. Good-bye economy, hello inflation.

    Sure, savings bonds aren't what they once were. Corp bonds are better. Munis for older/retirement focused demo.

    Mut funds, depending on their investment objectives will be similar in the short run...as we're heading toward the end of an economic cycle (aka recession) in the next 2 years. An index fund to the S&P will do well over the long haul (low exp, outperforms the market in the long).

    ETFs for the same also an option.

    Point was really any investment is welcomed...once they are old enough to appreciate it.

    But it's a holiday weekend and I'd rather think about deer...
