Got up early this Christmas day. Got the cob webs out and went out early to shovel my sidewalk plus three neighbours’ sidewalks. I’m going to go to heaven for this little act!
While my wife was enjoying her Christmas presents (I give her a stack of good old English mysteries, i.e. P. D. James, Ian Rankin, etc) I crawled into my carving shed and got another boot carved and finished. This boot came from the slab on the right, 2 posts previous. It was quite fragile but the plum wood is now in another form forever.
