How cool is that? I'd say a lot cooler than running into one of the Hilton kids at the dentist's office, which happened to me once when I brought the boys to get their teeth cleaned.

  2. Excellent -- glad you checked it out! I love the finished work, too. (And I agree -- Shep is cooler than a Hilton. :) )
