There is just something I don't like about big blue stars. I don't know why just think there ugly.

Like this.

Notice the patch has been cut away from the clear on the outside. Makes for a cleaner look.

Can't stand it when folks don't trim off all the excess clear on the union stickers.... Looks sloppy.

I think a white star would be better, but when I color it white I lose it in the power point slide. I'm working with PP and Paint, and I'm not skilled at it!

I would like it to have a red circle, blue background, and white star, but I can't get there.

Thanks for the input, Scott.

If you carefully cut outside the black line you won't cut the star tips off!

Looks good Scott, reduce the size and print one out. 4" diameter would be good.

You know I have been thinking this one over and it finally dawned on me what was missing! Cement blocks Skipper put some cement blocks on there and then you have a winner.

What happens is excuses,
1.) Clays Jeep.
2.) Buying a 3B.
3.) Potatoes?
4.) Im tired,
5.) A pool table causing a remodel of the Family/Kitchen area of the house.
6.) "My back hurts. "
7.) "I can't get motivated, Im tired, don't feel like doing anything today".
8.) To much time on JF.
9.) This is a good one, taking pictures of his feet/comphy shoes, usually propped up on something .
10.) Buying a XJ, and then attempting to hang out with the Yuppie crowd.
11.) Spending hours in front of the computer, trying to think of a snappy come back to Gmakra or Lucdog.
I'm sure there's more!

Bill
