I'm lucky... what I enjoy doing I get to
also do for a living. I teach the craft of Watchmaking
at The Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology
at Paris Junior College
in Paris, Texas.

I also have 2 home workshops to play around in.
The top floor was built as a sleeping room in 1917 and faces South with windows on 3 sides.
The light is great.
Some of the other projects in the works involve Jewelry and Metal Sculptures.
Both are unconventional...and yet, they work so well together.
Titanium and Silver Wings Necklace
Shown on a life size copper mesh body cast. This form
truly comes to life when spot lighted as it casts
what appear to be 3 dimentional shadows.
Hypnotic and Mesmerizing.......

Lately I have taken to making Knives.
It's hard on the hands but I like the end result.
Looking for Dinosaurs
is just too neat !
During the day I spend a lot of time
looking through a 10X loop to see watch parts up close
At night I look through a 10 inch reflector telescope to
see large things a long long long way away
Most Galaxys look smaller then watch parts !!
Keep Looking Up
Without a doubt My longest running way
to enjoy time's passage has to be playing musical instruments.
Right now the Gibson Mastertone Banjo gets the nod most of the time.
Of course...the most enjoyable time is
spent in the company of Laura. She's my very best friend, my favorite Scuba Diving Buddy and Fossil Hunting Companion and she also happens to be married to Me.
Life is Good
