    One Key Keyboard, headlights...... you guys are something (else) !

    FCS, I simply can't keep up with this thread but I agree. Andy learned a life lesson today and you are blessed in countless way.

    Thanks for being an encouragement to me and I suspect others.

    Andy has a great teacher and parents. He will turn out fine, you just watch (you better). He will try your patienence when he gets to high school but that too will pass. I am very lucky to have 4 great kids, all the credit goes to their mother.

    I think Wall Street and Integrity were antonyms on the SATs.

I was NOT HAPPY. We had more to do at the other side house and tools to get move and put up.
    So I keep working for a about 10 minutes and went in. I gave him a firming talk about just walking off a job and leaving your parent out there. I told him he was done for the day. Well he started crying said he was sorry and wanted to get back to work. And he did we talked about the issue while working. I told him if he leaned something and in his heart was truly sorry and gave a heartfelt apology then it was a good learning experience.
    When we were all done tools put up and we got shower. He Told me he felt that he should NOT be pay out because he “left me out there hanging” I told him I was proud of him for understanding that. I paid him out of what we agreed to of which he said he wasn’t so sure he should accept it. I told him he had learned something very important today and show great character in the end.
    I was so proud of him for refusing his pay and truly in the end show he understood what he had done wrong and owned up to it.
    It’s so great to be alive and still be able to be here for him. Life is funny something I would have never give much thought to 1 ago I treasure now.
