To my LumberJocks extended family, may the peace of He who made us all descend upon you and yours in this, the holiest of seasons, and may the coming year be far better than any previous year. May the best day you have known be the worst day of the new year. May the happiness of the holidays be yours 365 days of the year and may you find everyone you encounter be as pleasant and generous as the people we meet here.

To our sister Scrollgirl, many thanks again for the lovely gifts and for your friendship this past year. May your saw never skip and may your painting be ever better (if that is possible)

To my brother DeGoose, your work has been an inspiration to me, as it has been to so many here. Thank you for being my friend and for sharing your wonderful workmanship and methods with us all. May the kangaroo of happiness keep bouncing in your shop, good buddy.

To brother Steveinmarin, keep them videos coming my friend. When I’m feeling like the whole world is against me, I watch one of your videos and it renews my faith in humanity. Your gentle soul reaches out from the screen to touch those of us in need and makes the day easier to bear. Than you my friend and brother in wood.

To Ms Debby, thanks for taking on the job of trying to organize this mad house. You have far more patience than I, dear. If I had to run this asylum, I’d send most of us to bed without our suppers. (or is that to supper without our beds?)

To the rest of my brothers and sisters here that haven’t been provided with special mention, you too are well loved by yours truly. I have always felt that someone who has some skill in a craft owes it to the craft to pass that knowledge and skill on to the next generation of craftspeople. In that vein, I have taught leather craft for more than 4 decades. Now that I have added wood to my selection of media to work in, I am grateful to the Lord that I am able to contribute in some small way to the atmosphere of sharing that is the hallmark of LumberJocks.

The happiest of holidays, be the one you celebrate be Christmas, Channuka or Quanza, to you one and all, and may the coming year be happy, healthy and prosperous for you all.

Thank you so much, Paul! I am thinking so much of you and LouAnn today! I hope that she is feeling better and is home to you (for good!) soon. You are both in my thoughts and I wish you all the best in health and happiness this upcoming year. You have also been a wonderful inspiration to so many here on the forum. You kind and gentle nature is something that we all admire. Thank you for all your contributions here too. May you have a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year!
