A drawing from my brother-in-law!

You know in life we all make mistakes and many of us are able to learn from those mistakes and create a better life. There are some that need harsh circumstances to change them. Brandon's half brother, Mike, liked to drink and received 5 DWI's in a short amount of time. He is serving his time in Moberly Correctional Facility and will get out in September 2012. He really is a great person and now that he is 41 years old he has had some time to think about life. He always remains very positive and upbeat about life and works in the commissary. Brandon and Mike share the same mother and he calls 3-4 times a week to check in with us on how things are going and to check on his mom. (Their real mom, Marty, is not well and is getting ready for a knee replacement) Mike can do anything he sets his mind to and he is always learning something new. During is down time he has taught himself how to draw. He has done a great job on several drawings he has sent us and this is one of my favorite ones! (Yes I love Harley Davidson's!) I think he did a great job from the 4 x 6 picture he had and created this 8 x 10. He said that he will draw for 15 or 20 minutes and then have to set it down and walk away because he gets in a big hurry and then messes something up. I am sending him several pictures to work on a John Wayne picture/scene for Brandon and some country picture for me. Everyone deserves a fresh start at life and although he made some (OK, 5) bad decisions he is paying the price. Good job Mike.... I'm proud of you buddy!

I know you are all loving the platinum blonde hair.... I laugh every time I see this picture! :)
