Congratulations on taking the big step !!
Not a wasted day, it was all about wood working. Good you decided to have others to do your leg work.
A big thumbs up, you have it all under your thumb. LOL

Lisa, you mean a half a thumbs up right? oh, ok, you mean the other thumb, lol,
Larry, sounds like you had a very busy day, and that is just the beginning when starting your own business, but you already sound like you are being successful right off the bat, thats a good thing.

Smitty,
If Larry actually lost half of his thumb that would be correct, but anybody can see that it’s really more like 13/16 thumbs up. Sorry to be poking fun at your thumb Larry, once that nail grows in, you’ll never even know it was cut.

Way to go Larry. You’ll have to design a opening board, or board opener, which ever you prefer down under. Where men thunder? Or fart? Or whatever they do down under. Lots O luck. Now don’t lose any more members. m

LLW. Sounds like a ranch. You need to make a small brand to burn into the underside of your boards.

And when I say “underside of your boards”... it was referring to the cutting boards of course. It was not a euphemism for anything else ;)

Larry, There is just one thing I forgot to mention. The first 3 or 4 years in business, a 12 hour day on Sunday is a short day.

Proudly showing off his newly-leased downtown New York apartment to a couple of friends late one night, a drunk led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong hanging on the wall.

“What’s that big brass gong for?” one of the friend’s asked.

“Issss nod a gong. Issss a talking Australian clock” he drunkenly replied.


“A talking Australian clock – seriously?”

“Yup. Hmmm (hic).”

“How’s it work?”, the second friend asked, squinting at it.

“Just watch” he said.

He picked up a hammer, gave the gong an ‘ear-shattering bash’ and stepped back.

His three mates stood looking at one another for a moment in astounded silence.

Suddenly, an Australian voice from the other side of the wall screamed,

“For ^&%$ sake, you stupid bugger . It’s ten past three in the &^#@* morning !!!”
