Of course, there are times when I am out on the road and
have to do the best I can to meet clients. Today, I met a
client in Massillon here.

This is the the Bureau of Workers Compensation building in Canton
where I do contract work and meet with clients.

The Goodyear Blimp came over the house last week
on its way back to Akron.

Sunday was Dover High School Graduation. Here is my son and his girlfriend, Alice, at her graduation party.

We went to Pittsburgh on Saturday to visit my parents. What a blessing that they are doing well.

Last October, I bought this new Equinox ProPak 6 Housing as my homemade housing began to leak. As this is bigger, I needed a carrying case for it. I really wanted a Pelican or Storm Hard Case, and price was not the problem, but size was. Due to the measurement, the only cases that would fit are twice as big as I need. They are carry-on luggage size. Way too big to take on vacation trips. So, I decided to make my own padded case.
I got this Stanley Hard Base All Purpose Bag at Target.

I got four of these foam sheets at Joanne Fabric
I measured and cut the bottom piece
Here is the end piece. Notice, I slit the foam and
packed it into the tool holder pockets
Do the same for the sides
Packing the foam in the sides can get tricky,
but it works to hold the foam in place

Pad for the top

I don't want to glue the padding in as it will get wet and I can buy other foam sheets and replace them as the need be. It is a very light case to carry around. I just wanted some protection for the housing when I am carrying equipment to dive sites, packing it in my checked luggage, or on a dive boat.

I have been doing a special project for Kent State University Transition Center. I have worked with six Special Education Students at Hudson High School and training them in the basics of job hunting. They all interview well, have JIST cards, resumes, and know how to fill out applications. Here are pictures of the Hudson High School Special Education Independent Living Lab Center. It is designed to look like an apartment so they can train them in independent living skills.

Here are pictures of our Buckhorn Lake in Millersburg, OH Scuba Dive last Saturday. It was cold air temp and cold water, but the first dive of the year.

First scuba dive of the year was Saturday May 19 at Buckhorn Lake near Millersburg, Ohio. Weather was 60s and windy. Water temp was 60 to 50. Vis was about 5 to 10 feet. Made two 20 foot half hour dives. I will post some pictures.
