It was a real pleasure to meet a fellow LJ, Troy (Horologist) and his wife Cathy, {taking this last minute thought photo), recently. They live in Melrose, which is more than a little trek from here. It was a New Years Eve party and we didn’t have too much chance to talk shop but we had a good time anyway.

It was great to meet you and I hope to catch up with you and your Dad soon.

Always nice to meet fellow LJ’ers, although I have never met one personally. Happy New Year to both of you!

Is my memory playing tricks or am I right that there is a ShopSmith connection here ?

Looks like a nice room for a New Years Eve party…...and informal too :-)

Sounds just wonderful with a new years party meeting.
And I think it is nice to see some faces here, even the wood in the bacground makes it hard to focus. Smiles.
Best thoughts,

Yes, a bit of a Shopsmith connection.

Cathy and I had a great time, not only did we get to see Ken’s beautiful shop, we were also treated to tours of the Devil’s Den and of a limestone quarry turned into what Ken calls the “garden”. Simply amazing.
