This began here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/572,
moved to http://lumberjocks.com/topics/578 and now has a home in a more manageable format that won’t break your scroll wheel. If you are new to the tour, look back over your shoulder at the previous entries, get up to date with the goofy references, disclaimer (no harm will come to volunteers, most of the gentle fun poked gets squarely aimed at Deb or myself), and the nearly incessant whining for more volunteers willing to allow us to “visit” your shop via Adobe Photoshop. It’s designed to be fun for all, and a great way to meet some lumberjocks you have yet to meet, but will soon be considering friends.

Nice tractor debbie…a little easier digging tool than you had in the Himalayas waaaay back…who woulda thunk—-HUMOR can bring the world together! Debbie…I think this could really be a new career—-AMBASSADOR of WOODWORKING…you could get a seat in the U.N.

How about this becoming a link via the e-mag? Thanks for the fun…by the way…Debbie…we are doing a back yard make-over…do you think you could drive over and dig out some roots with your new tractor…and then you could stay over for the picnic…

Thanks…by the way…the WINE is good locally (so I have heard)...

Glad Debbie and Dough are still touring. I would miss seeing them around the world.

It looks like Debbie is getting into the big toys now!

Bill,
I apologize about the sparsity of tour posts of late. With the move to blogdom, I thought I would go to a weekly format, just so we would not have to endure “Ms Debbie P’s 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection # 576890”. Also the wife was beginning to get a bit leery about seeing me at the computer every morning when she woke up (I work 3-11). The sparsity also has a bit to do with a lack of volunteers. Maybe I should ask Martin to have all new workshop posts “sign” a waiver expressly allowing the tour visit! I have several really big tours in the works, though. so stay tuned. And there are the occasional appearance elsewhere on LJs. This one came up on Deb’s visit with the publishers of Canadian Woodworking magazine. http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/MsDebbieP/blog/1468

There was a context for this outrage‚Ķreally. You’d have to go see.

That is ok Doug, I can understand the change of pace. Of course, we may all have Tour withdrawals for awhile….
