Hello, my name is Garrett. I live in Texas with my wife of 17 years and 4 dogs. No children and no plans of having any. Our dogs keep us pretty busy!!! I've worked in the radiator business off and on for about 20 years. It's never steady and find myself looking for other things to occupy my time until it picks up once again, and it always does. I was adopted when I was 3 days old. My mother worked as a court reporter in Dallas County under Judge Gibbs in family court, which incidentally, is how she acquired me.:) I have 3 sisters on my mothers side and 2 brothers on my fathers. My mother and father divorced when I was around 11 years old. I no longer keep in contact with my father. I guess he felt when leaving my mother, he would break the ties with his son as well. That's ok, I've done quite well without his guidance. My grandparents, whom I loved dearly died in the early 80's. They gave me a good grounding in lifes essentials. I was raised a southern baptist and baptised at 13. I spent a great deal of time with my grandparents, going to church with them and helping my grandfather do "good deeds" for friends of the church. I really miss them alot and look foward to hopefully meeting them again.

What am I looking for here? Friends, help if I need it, helping others if its within my abilities and learning more about myself through others.

Thanks for your time and I hope to be sharing my thoughts and ideas with each of you.

Garrett

Thank you all for the welcome.

How many people are from Canada here? I've seen quite a few already.

You could offer a fake coupon for poutine and see how many people request it :) Seriously though, it's an interesting question. I'm almost sure the Americans outnumber the Canadians on this forum, but I could be wrong.

I've always believed that there are a lot of Americans who WISH they could be Canadian... :D

I hope all the other Americans vote since only half of us vote on election day.

Were we supposed to? :panic:

I drove my car for an hour and walked from the parking lot to my office. Do I get any points for that?
