I know posts come and go rather quickly here but I thought I’d see if I could generate a little Lumberjock interest in something over at the PopWood blog.
Glen Huey was out at my place last week teaching a class on the tea table he made for the June 2008 issue of Popular Woodworking. Amongst all the teaching, building and visits from Karson and David, we managed to squeeze in a bit of fun. The weather here last week was absolutely perfect. Each day we ate lunch outside. And each day, after an outstanding meal, the conversation turned to one particular bit of lawn ornamentation…a hammock.
Well, after class one evening last week, Glen was waiting patiently for my wife and I to decide where we were going for dinner. Somehow he managed to find his way out to that hammock. All I have to say is, a few clicks of the shutter button and an email to Megan Fitzpatrick (the managing editor) is all it took to get a little contest going.
If you head over to the PopWood editor’s blog (click here to get there) you’ll find the incriminating photo. Megan has turned this into a bit of a contest. It seems My friend Adam Cherubini has recently released a DVD on hand tools and such. Megan’s contest boils down to having the readers of the blog try to come up with the funniest caption for the photo. The contest ends this Friday at 2pm and the best caption, as chosen by Megan and her diet coke, wins a free copy of Adam’s DVD. Check it out if you get the chance. It’s good clean fun…mostly.
