Live seems to be sweet to me
and luck shines.

Kind of like that postman, he always smiles at me, he always take a extra look if he have something for me and he always make me realize it’s a little big world.
Yesterday he arrived again with a pack, I was expecting a hat from Germany, but this was not a hat box…

This one is for all the post men and woman out there.

Looked at the label and could see it was from my friend Madts, kind of fun to get a pack for Mads from Madts…
Madts and I share many stories among them are we went to same school and high school here in Copenhagen also lived in same places, yes it really is a small world.
I live in Denmark and Madts Huston US now.

Enough talking – I opened the pack and inside was two wonderful pieces of Mesquite wood.
Amazing how hard this wood is, and what a life.
Wauuu, thank you Madts, now I guess I have to come up with the right project, do have an idea.
I look forward to your next visit in Copenhagen.

Ohh yes and for the luck part, I just got a new apartment in the center of Copenhagen and won a online contest of 100$ to buy tools at our good old friend Martins new site, so yes I feel loved and lucky, what more can we ask for? Ohhyes some wood – ahhh got that also, so yes I smile, a big wonderful smile.

I send thanks and wonderful thoughts to you my friend.

Thank you,

And Mads, make sure that you keep all small leftovers for the grill. Soak them in water, then put them on the coals.

I misread the beginning as ’Kind of like that possum, he always smiles at me,’

Knew I’d misread it when you said he arrived ‘with a pack’.

Nice gift! Looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

-- God bless, Candy
