« Part 14: International Day of the LumberJock Part 15 of LJ Site series Part 16: Tomorrow's Get-Together »


Today is our “International Day of the LumberJock”.

“The what,” you ask? Well… way back in 2007, we were anxiously awaiting the milestone of 1,000 members. And on June 6, 2007 we finally reached that (then) big, big number! It was exciting times.

In honour of that achievement, Martin proclaimed the day “International Day of the LumberJock”, in honour of our members around the world.

So put on those LumberJock shirts and hats, tie up your woodworking apron share your enthusiasm proudly!

Yea, Lumberjocks. If it weren’t fer all ya’ll, well, we wouldn’t know each other….. Carry on, everyone, make some dust, make the chips fly, listen the the roar of all those finely tuned engines, OH, yea, the ones in your saws and other woodin equipment. Then when yer done, please do what Stumpy suggests: “sit back, and have a cold one, because, you deserve it”

i have been in other sites for things like my tractors and old truck, the only one I still visit daily is L/J’s Keep up the good work, and keep the commercial sales to a minimum.
