« Part 26: I have not been to Tasmania... Part 27 of Going to local shows. series Part 28: Off to Tassie... »

I received an E-mail from Patt Gregory this afternoon…
Hey Larry,
Missed your bright, cheerful ¬†presence at the Melbourne Show. That was nice of you to send your ‘sidekick/friend’ by to say hello.
It was a good show, but absolutely freezing because of a cold snap. My teeth were chattering.
Have attached some pix. The red head, Victoria, is my best friend and she lives in melb. she helped me sell books.
Hope its all going well for you.
All the Best
Patt
Woodwork for Women

I thought I might post the pics for you all to see.

One of the things Patt teaches at her School of Woodworking for Women…how to take a Pallet and turn it into a Coffee Table… really cool.. in my humble opinion..

From this pic … it was not only women who wanted to see what Patt was up to…

Here is a shot of Patt and her Best Friend… Victoria…

I am disappointed that I did not get to go to Melbourne… if only to meet up with Victoria… from all reports a great person and a lot of fun..

FWIW… I bought a copy of Patt’s Book and I can heartily recommend it … not just for women but for anyone who is interested in taking up the hobby of woodworking..

PS apparently Patt was not the only one who missed me… several exhibitors came over to the Torque Stand and asked where I was… Nice to be missed…

You’re on the way to fame and glory Larry!! :-)) Nice to be missed, but nicer to be there, eh?

An aquaintance of mine said he always wanted to disappear and have everyone wonder what happened to him. I ask,”What if nobody wondered? And, if you didn’t have contact, how would you know they were wondering or even noticed you where gone?” The response was silence.

Good one Larry. I have only one woman missing me and that is usually when there is work to be done! Your friend may know how to make a coffee table out of a pallet, but though I don’t want to brag, I am able to make a pallet out of a coffee table.

Good one Mike…..lol

That looks like it would of been a cool show to see. I am always looking for new woodwork books to add to my library (OK small book shelf but I think big…lol). Do you have a link as to where someone can snag it Larry?

I had way over 200 pallets last year that I took apart very big job they are nailed with those twisted nails, but I saved enough good lumber to make all of my porch railings and I have lots left over, lots of it was for burning.
