« Part 2: The Packing Box Part 2 Part 3 of The Joiner and the Cabinetmaker series no next part

I was planning on building the packing box today, and I may still get some of it done. Unfortunately, I doubt I’ll get it done…but it was for a fortunate reason. Last night, I bought a weekly newspaper here in town. I’ve been a political blogger for the past several years and about two years ago I became a columnist for The Albany Journal. On November 1 of this year, I become the publisher of The Albany Journal.

I sent out a press release this morning, then took my son to school only to learn it was pouring rain. I work outside. No big deal really. Well, now it’s not raining and I’ve had several phone calls including a local television station who wants to do a story on the purchase. You see, as best as I can tell, this is the first time a blog has ever purchased a newspaper. Pretty cool huh?

So, I have an interview in a little over an hour, and I have a couple of other things to do, and I’m not 100% sure I’ll get the packing box done. However, it’s a heck of a reason, right?

For what it’s worth, it’s even wood related. Paper is made out of wood, right????? ;)

Yep, it will be. Of course, woodworking is going to be more important now since I’ll need something to help me relieve my stress :)

That’s a high stress job. Your sojurn into handtool work could not have come fast enough…it’s very zen.

Congrats.

Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too. Lord knows I’m going to need it!
