To start with, i am a cook at a small 'mom and pop' bar. I have a wonderful wife (jessmarie on swap-bot) and a beautiful daughter, Audrey. Currently, i am working like a turtle for my college education. In all, i am only about two years into my four year, however, it has taken me about 4 years to get to my second year.. if that makes sense? Guess i could have taken more classes at once. Nonetheless, it is coming along.
A few years ago, after my dodge shadow had been robbed and stolen a couple of times, I turned it into an artcar using a couple of cans of Chalkboard paint. I'm sorry to say, the car had it's last run about a year ago. I miss it. When i am able to get another car, i will turn that one into an artcar.
