« Part 1: MERRY CHRISTMAS Part 2 of SEASONS GREETINGS series no next part

WELL if it hadn’t been for my burnings a lot of my family would not of gotten any Christmas from me. It made me feel good to give them and they all Loved what they got. Some of them asked if I was for sure I wanted to give certain ones to them. well it would of made a little money, but what the hey, I can always burn another one of that type. I missed two of them, but that will be made real easy corrected. so This Christmas came off was a real good holiday. I always wanted it to be the more I can give the better, OK sometimes I wish for a little more of receiving but it pans out to my good. For the last three weeks I haven’t been able to get out to my shop. If it gets below 30 than I can’t get lout there. and I have COME DOWN WITH THIS BUG THAT IT GOING AROUND TWICE, SO WHEN IT WARMS UP A LITTLE I’ll BE ABLE TO GO OUT AND GET BACK TO WORK. sorry about the capitol letters my fingers are bigger than the keys and I tend to hit the cap button to often.

Those are very good burnings! I used to do that kind of woodworking because my dad wouldn’t let me use any power tools as I was too young. I still have my equipment and I should use it to embellish my projects.

Get rid of your bug and don’t feel alone as I am still taking antibiotics to chase the ones I have in a much warmer climate. I lived in Menomonie while going to school, know your cold, and do not miss temperatures less than 40°F.

It feels so good to give to other people something that was created by your hands. I hope you feel better soon, I have been sick with the flu since last Tuesday, but plan on getting back to the shop today.

Jim if it wasn’t for my burnings, my kids would have gotten about 1 present a piece. I was lucky enough to sell a few and make enough money to get them most of what they wanted. Keep up the good work buddy and happy holidays toyou and yours.
