I too, hope that when I grow up I'm even slightly similar to Walter with his determination and persistance. In the mean-time, however, I will be perfectly happy being the kind of man that Ted is. My hats off to you sir.

Nice bow Walter! And great job Ted. The satisfaction you must have received from that job must be far more valuable than any payment you have ever received. Way to go! [clapper]

Thanks Ted. That's what I call a buildalong!

I'm currently listening to Hemingway's "Old Man and the Sea" on CD to make it through my commute. It's interesting how this correlates [Smile]

Ted is Manolin and Walter is Santiago. Except Walter apparently gets to take his marlin home.

Thanks guys , yes it was a gift to share the time with Walter and I too want to be like Walter when I grow up, 91 and still learning, what a guy.
Yes Joe Don loosing hair up top , but look at the ride I have had along the way Whew!
John , thats one of my favorite books, and about the only Hemingway I care to read over and over, funny as I get older and older the meaning of the story continues to change.
I am contacting Walter and Christina so that Walter may see the inspiration he is here. Hopefully he will chime in
