An old fart in his ,Well, Let's just say I'm over 55...56...57...OK, So I'm really over 60. I still have my hair, even if it is mostly gray. The only problem with my hearing is that I just can't seem to hear my wife.
I went to the eye dr. for a check-up. Told him that I wanted to have John Deere glasses. To make a long story short, I really loved those $500. glasses. I set them on the truck rear bumper so I could tie down the tractor on the trailer. Then when I was all set, I drove off. Enough said. I did find them, flat and no glass, bent all out of shape, but, they are still my John Deere Glasses.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Welcome. Enjoy yourself here. I know i do. By the way I like gray hair. My kids call me old fart ( not far under 60 myself) but refuse to act old though.

Imagine that! A year has almost gone by since you became a Lumber Jock. Congratulations on your anniversary! I look forward to your posts.

I missed the corner shelf when you posted it a couple of weeks ago. There are so many wonderful projects to look at here. I did notice that in you John Deere collectibles that your John Deere glasses were missing. Hope you find them!
