An older couple were lying in bed one night. The husband was falling asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk. She said, “You used to hold my hand when we were courting.” Wearily he reached across, held her hand...

I've been married to my lovely wife, Maggie, since January, 1968. We have two sons, two Daughter-In_Laws, three beautiful granddaughters and one grandson, ages 15, 12, 10 & 4. My oldest son lives right across the street from me and my youngest is about 80 miles West. I've been interested in wood working since I was about 10 years old and made my first "skate scooter".
I started turning pens in 1998, as a hobby. I quickly ran out of people to give pens to - and it was getting expensive. If I wanted to keep making them, I had to figure out a way to sell some. Thus, Cajun Pen Shop was born. Internet Sales was a fairly new concept, so I dove in and sold a bunch of my hand turned pens. One thing led to another and next thing I know, I'm an authorized distributor for some of the largest pen manufacturers. The rest is history, my hobby grew into a full time business and I found that I no longer had time to turn my pens.
In addition to the Pen Business, I've been a Police Officer since 1968. I retired as a Lieutenant on April 20, 2010. I will hopefully spend the rest of my days in my shop making sawdust.
The Pen Shop has allowed me to put together quite a collection of woodworking tools, I actually have pretty much everything I think I will need - now I am starting on tools that I want :-)). I'll post some shop pictures soon.
My main interests are turning, box making, clock making - pretty much any small projects.

I have recently figured out how to do the Celtic Knots in an ink pen. I have the concept down pat – but what I’m wondering about is the gluing process. For the ink pen I use CA glue and it all goes quickly (about 15 minutes for the wh...
