Well I really did have to return a few items back to Johnsons Workbench were I got all the goodies the other day. For one thing I bought a bag that said 20 ft of veneer, what it did’nt say they where in 5”x9” pieces all multi colored. I asked the guy, what in the heck is a person going to do with 25 or 30 pieces of 5×9 inch pieces of veneer. He said well you can do a lot of things with them. Like eh, eh, well you could think of a lot of things. I said right. Anyway they did’nt have the right size bandsaw blade for my craftsman bandsaw and the walnut veneer I bought turned out to be mahagony. But I did get their advertisers name and number for Zuki. And got to look at all the goodies and new saws and lathes and etc. all the other goodies I don’t get to see often. It was fun. Well I have many boxes and burl clocks to make for xmas so to all a goodnight. Happy Holidays All. And remember to keep Christ in Christmas. I love you guys. (said like Cartman) mike

The question on everyone’s mind is, “Did you walk out with less than you walked in with?”

Merry Christmas Mike.

If you noticed rust spots on any of the tools they’re probably from me drooling over them! We live in NW Fl, inlaws in mid-michigan (Shepherd) and , since discovering Johnson’s, I rarely miss stopping there on our way to and from family visits.
Merry Christmas from LA (lower Alabama, that is)!

Same to you Doug, Dennis, Deb, Mr, Stewart, on aand on Dick Cain and beautiful Barb, Mark D. Karson, wish you would adopt me, I’m not to old, onlly 57, heck I got a few good years on me, just think of how useful I could be. I would’nt gripe when you told me to take out the saw dust. Course you’d have to adopt the wife and kids too, its a family plan. I don’t eat much, but the kids and grandkids, well you know, like trying to feed a pack of wolves. Anyway love to all and merry xmas to all, Thos, Russel keep an eye on these kids sos they don’t loose a body part. I’ll give you an update on Oz when I hear something, he had surgery on the 18th. God Bless em. cu ,mike
