Is this the place you have to stand up and tell about yourself?

:thankyou: I figure its only right to stop by and say a few words here.

I have been around the sign business all my life, started out in Dallas, Texas a learning, hanging around shops on Saturday as a kid, later directed by a sign man to some books, and with the help of a few good signmen, I learned the trade, I'm still learning.

I made the trans into computers about 1990 on a TRS 80, then on from there.

Leaving out a lot of things, I moved to where I live in Texas now from the general Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex in 1993.

I'm 64 years old now, my wife and I have a small shop and work as hard as we can every day.

I still handletter a lot along with the typical vinyl signage, had computers not come along, and had I not learned them, I guess I would be having a hard time making ends meet now, but we manage.

I am surely not a know it all, I am not the best there is, I just do the best I can.

Thank you for your time.

thanks to all of you, I am sure I will enjoy the fine folks here.

I guess i have to sweep the floors some for my keep?

But every now and then I'll have to take a break, first I gotta find the light switch and the men's room, I just stumbled over a chair some where and dropped my sign kit.
