well I’m going to tell ya ll about a special friend…been with me from the beginning and i assume to the end…my friend can be loud and can leave a blue cloud and words that seem to be part a of a dream,my friend is intimate most of the time its always stripping and in public thats a crime so i think we should just take off the vail…and see my friend the one who can whail…...ahhhh yes my planner..the head dude in the shop..hes taken ugly wood and made it so when you see it it ya just want to drop…..your thinking how can such beauty be hidden in there…...and its all just happened being exposed to the air….colors of black and tones of green ,change the way it looks….just makes ya want to scream… planner does it all…three blades spinning fast….taking layer and layer…and revealing its past….started as a seed droped from his mother tree…then feed with sun and rain…...more branches it has gained…..the magic inside is what makes it all fun….cus one day my planner will show what all of his friends have done…..the bark starts to go and we get just a glimmer…..the light hits its grain and we begin to shiver…things like birdseye and all the strange shapes…the grain runs in patterns….and they all look so great….seeing inside of this beautiful tree, this is what my planner does for me..i get it gray and brown with nails and dirt..and its all like a body builder when they take off there shirts…..the ooowwws and wows and amazment are all seen…..the planner is what has revealed this dream…..yes hes loud and allways takin it off…..but the beautifull wood is worth all the cost….this is pretty long…and its late at night…..ill see it in the morning and discover my fright…....was i sober when i wrote this all…..yes i was…...and i had a ball, SO A1 JIM HERE IS YOUR POEM AND SERVED WITH A GRIN….WATCH WHAT YA ASK FOR CUS I HAVE LOTS OF TIME….AND AS FAR AS I KNOW…WRITING ISNT A CRIME…....grizzman

this is a great poem

but im wondering what you mean by planner

is it the person in your shop that plans out all your jobs

or is it the machine that planes all your timber to a beautiful dressed shape (its funny how you strip it down to dress it)

Me, too. Especially when he said the head dude in the shop.
Planer makes a lot more sense.

Are you planning to spray paint all your tools Grizzman Red from now on?
Now that’s a plan!

I see someones foot disappearing. Ain’t it sad when you can’t even get away with a feeble Rhyme without someone suspecting something? Of course there was that red dress incident. LOL

Hey Grizz
That was fun and cool I’ll have to ask for something tough next time like things that rime with xylophone or ectoplasm.

Hey Ellen
Don’t even go there :-)) And don’t expect photos ether
