Just for the sake of being trendy I guess, I have opted not to blog on myspace like so many other people. Yes, my children all have the my space thing, but this seems to be a little more controlled to a certain extent! Not that I am a control freak or anything, it's just that I think that I will like this better.

Last Saturday, as an early Christmas present I took my son for his 2nd tattoo, and I got one myself, in memory of my dad. It's pretty "epic" in Pete's words. The signature is pretty close to the original. Man did he have some beautiful penmanship. The stars about killed me though, pretty intense work if you asked me! But I like it! Now I have my father on one shoulder helping to lead me through life and our angel Emma Renee' on the other shoulder to help me out also.

Pete's tattoo is from one of his favorite bands "Circle Takes the Square" It's pretty cool looking. But, someone told me, "Hey! That's from Hollywood Squares!" And then I realized that Pete probably isn't old enough to realize what Hollywood squares really is!
I guess that this is a pretty good first post, not too much information, but just a starting out experience for me. Now if I can become professional at it like Samantha, Bill, or Patience, or the MasterBlogger, Aynex, I will be doing good!
