that’s tough re: the junker you’re having to drive around!! poor you.

The jockey-less jockey is wonderful!!! I think the pieces look great “jockey-less” ...
Extraordinary as always.

1 week, 2 days and counting… til Laura arrives

My daughter and son-in-law just bought a house and move out (of my home) at the end of the month. 1 week, 2 days, ... not that I’m counting. :D

great work ,
as usual jordan .

get a stump ,
and carve yourself a leg of lamb ,
and a ham roast ,
then you can eat something other than pb&j .

nice job on the ’ junker ’ ,
but why not a porshe ,
they should be the same amount of carving !

best to you and laura ,

and welcome home !

If I did not know that these were carved by you I would not believe these are wood. Awesome as always Jordon. Best wishes to you and Laura, hope she is with you soon.

Patron – I suppose that’s why they always tell me to ‘carve the turkey’ at Christmas!
Debbie – you’ll be crying when they leave!
Karson – don’t get me wrong – I drove my rust bucket to buy a load of groceries – but I’m too lazy to cook so a McD would go down great right about now.
Thank you all for feeling so sorry for my sad driving situation – you are the BEST!!!! and always give me a laugh. I’m so glad to be back, I missed ya.
