    hours. This last weekend Friday he got home at 6 and I worked him till 10:30 pm and @ 10:30 he ate dinner.

    this last Sat he and Sunday He worked 12 hours with 1 15 min break and 1/2 hour for lunch each day.

    Monday we went out and he bought a Wii and contolers so 2 can play and a few used game. He made sure to not spend it all and kept $30 in a "rainy day fund".

    Wow....sounds like a chip off the old block....both blocks, Karen and Bret...!!!

    Maybe you could take him up on a tour of Ottawa and Capital Hill to do a little dog and pony show so they can learn about staying within their means!!!!
