I’ve never been one to blow trumpets for birthdays and after all Christmas is supposed to celebrate a birthday, though there is a tendency to put that in the back seat of our driving forces.

However, that doesn’t preclude me from appreciating the camaraderie I have acquired here at Lumberjocks and the interaction with fellow members over the past 12 months. I appreciate your friendship and candour and thoroughly enjoyed the banter over some somewhat inane revelations. The skills exhibited are well worth filling away in that part of the brain that alcohol cannot erase.

So to all you Jocks and Jockettes… I’ll have a vino or two for you over the next few weeks and hope to continue or woodworking intimacy for another 12 moths in 2017.

Ducky, I was going to say “you remind me of an absent minded professor” BUT sir you are way more gifted and entertaining than that…
You sense of humour is somewhat of a “black humour” style; something us Aussie’s are known for, able to laugh at ourselves while making jokes about a serious situation…
I’ve enjoyed and appreciated your encouragement, support and talent this past year and say THANK YOU…
I’ve also enjoyed the laughter you along with others have created with the blogs, thank you.
Don’t bother with the “vino” for me as I don’t drink except water, coffee and some soft drinks…
Keep well and safe over this Christmas season and YES celebrate the birthday of the babe of Christmas…

Hey crowie... you’ve just upped my mandatory quota for festive drinking. The tax YOU save, by not drinking vino, has to be made up by us drunks...
I use the term drunks as I’m not an alcoholic... alcoholics go to meetings!

Thx. I don’t drink to celebrate the birthday, but I do remember it…

The kids are the ”Dags” (look that up on your wiki)... But are you calling the missus an oblong Humbug?...

PS. If I wasn’t a duck, I would have been that Little Black Sheep.
