Keep up the good work and if I ever move to Alaska which is my goal in life to do by the way. I hope we run in to each other it would be a hoot to meet ya in person I am sure.

Bob, this is better than a lukewarm cup of coffee to start the day. Thanks for the wake up. I am looking forward to the next installment.

Your wife sounds a great deal like mine (as I am sure most of them do share quite a few commonalities). I have often said that my wife firmly believes it is her mission in life to make sure I have plenty of projects to fill any free time that I may have so I can well understand where your wife’s impatience in getting her bench completed.

Hello Bob (my name too), great start to my day. However, I’ve got to tell you, I believe that your wife and mine are one in the same person. I have no idea how it is possible for her to be heckling you in Alaska and me in Michigan both at the same time (teleportation?) but from your description, I know that it is my own lovely lady with her long, long, never ending list of projects that all need to be completed yesterday. ;^))))))

Why are people emailing about this blog? I can’t believe there’s any doubt to the truthfullness of everything you’re saying. Every single time I read one of your blog posts, I have no doubt in my mind that every single word of it is true. My shop friend told me so. Of course, I don’t know about today. My wife started kicking my butt and making me take my meds and for some reason it must have made my shop friend unhapy. I haven’t seen him in a couple of days. You warned me about that a blog or two ago. I am refusing to take those meds anymore. I miss my friend.
Truth or not the truth? That is the question. I’ve got a true story for everyone.
One day in the middle of the night.
Two dead boys picked a fight.
Back to back they faced each other.
Drew their swords and shot each other.

Up the street and down the corner.
A deaf policeman heard the noise.
And come to shoot the two dead boys.

Now if you don’t believe this lie is true.
Just ask the blind man.
He saw it too!


Have your say...
