Well it has been one long and hard winter. Not that the weather was very severe.
I’ve been rather poorly and underweight. I’ve had no notion at all towards woodwork, even other folks work left me disinterested.
My LJ buddies were there though, keeping in touch and offering encouraging words. It was good to know that friends were there. We have chatted about lots of things and very little about wood. Amazing the things that we may not be aware of that we can have in common with our LJ buddies.
It is not to say that I made no attempt at getting back into the shop. The trips that I did make only seemed to confirm one thing. Stay out of the shop while on strong medication.
On one trip, I had just to put a few brads into the back of a frame. The wee brads 1/2” just to hold the backing on. Well it turns out there was a 2” brad left in the gun, I think on CSI they call it a through and through. How could I have been so silly? The frame was covered in blood and I’m sure the customer would complain. I could always put a picture of Dracula in it and sell it on eBay.
So to all the LJ’s
Thanks for being there for me
