It’s hard to believe that when I first signed up on this website there were 1200 and some odd of us. I think back then a project would stay on the list for most of a week. While I haven’t been on here much in the last four years I think I am returning to a degree. Carleen and I got a divorce this summer. We split in April and are still friends. I think NOT being married to Carleen is a lot like being married to Carleen. LOL I bought one half of the house in Jordan Valley from her. She took the furniture I built and I got the shop, tools, etc. Onward and upward. I just finished a new bench and a new kitchen table. (I’ll post them when I get a chance). Built the table mostly with hand tools. No machinery in the shop!!! Works just fine. Although I would suggest that all of you buy stock in Johnson and Johnson. My band-aid bill went through the roof. Those chisels and saws were still sharp after four years in the box. Sawing tenons with a tenon saw and chiseling mortises with mortise chisels builds character. Yeah, it felt good to work wood again.
Went into Boise when I got back from Wyoming and put out a new CD called “Tom Angle Live!!”. It’s a live show that I will use for promotion. I’m on my way on Wednesday to the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Heber City, Utah. Then the 14th to the 18th of November will be the Western Music Ass’n showcases and award show in Albuquerque. I’m playing a showcase and hosting a stage. I had a great summer; I worked 6 days a week on the ranch and played some kind of show 5 nights a week. I was glad to see fall come around. I’m glad to be back among friends both old and new. Here’s a photo of the last show around the campfire I did in Jackson.
Can anyone tell me about Jock Mike?? I saw the in memoriem. He was a good friend.
