Late Edition This Month: Many of you recall that in the last issue I mentioned that my father in-law’s health had been failing of late. On August 28th, he passed away at the age of 87. My father in-law served as a Seabee in the United States Navy during WWII (Pacific Theatre of Operations) and was a Civil Engineering and Computer Sciences professor at Rice University in Houston, Texas for thirty-seven years.

This has been a hard year for our family, with the fire earlier in the year that devastated our in-laws residence and the subsequent health problems my father in-law experienced for the last few months of his life. Thanks to everyone who emailed or called offering prayers and support during this difficult time for our family. We sincerely appreciate your kindness.

Maui Daydreaming: My wife and I recently returned from our annual trek to our favorite island paradise, Maui. We were able to meet many new artists and soak up a little of the island’s hospitality and charm. We’ve been to Maui so many times now that it really feels like a second home to us. That’s one reason we are planning to retire there in a few years and live the island life… Maui Style!

Long Term Finish Storage Test Report: My long-term finish storage test report will appear next month, so I can have a bit more time to take additional pictures for the article. Thanks.
