grizzman, you aren’t going to break out the red dress again and give him a hug are you?

Nice tribute Grizzman.
You are a kind and thoughtful man.
I’m sure Martin appreciates it.

I agree with Steve on the red dress—Ewwwwwwwww!

Aside from that (which you will never live down, by the way)
Thanks—and thanks to Martin too.

I think your a great guy and consider you one of my top LJs buds, but even though your intentions are good I think that all members and creators of LJs should post when and what they want and not be pressured into posting. If we pressure people to post then we might tell them what to post and how often to post or for posters to were red dresses. I don’t mean to rain on you parade but just my honest opinion.

hehee too funny. I’m sure Martin is sitting back chuckling at this blog

Jim – I’ve tried the guilt pressure with Martin. He hasn’t fallen for it yet :)

you just never know—perhaps a good ol’ friendly LJ “NUDGE” will entice him to make that something that he says is on his list for someday.

So, Martin – is today the some day?? :)

Thanks for nice message, Grizz.

me and woodworking.. well I will just repeat what I replied to your PM yesterday: my main hobby right now is landscape photography and together with my other activities there is no time for woodworking. Maybe when I move to a house one day ;)

going to buy a hammer now.. should be a good first step lol

I see what you mean about excuses. I remember Martin telling me “when I move”.. (he’s moved) and now it is “when I move to a house” ... interesting!! haha

a hammer!! YIPPEE that’s a big step!
Hey .. I just had a thought, Martin—you could build a frame for one of your landscape photos!!

And I thought for sure the hug from Grizzman in a red dress would do the trick. That is enough motivation for nearly anyone to post a project.

Deb, that is a wonderful thought. A hammer and a few nails with some wood of choice and a picture frame is created.
