What day is it?

Have you ever woke in the morning and rushed to the shop to check the calendar because you just know that you’re forgetting to do something? I’d like to blame it on that, but the truth is, I procrastinated. Yes, I put it off until the last minute. So grab the scrap bucket and brass wire, and bounce it off of the lathe a couple of times, combine it with a nice dinner and I think I can save this thing…..

The small bud is Boxelder and the larger bud is cedar with red and yellow dies and finished with a wax. The vase is eastern cedar with a coat of BLO and poly. The middle was drilled for a test tube so that it could hold water for a real flower…..

What do ya think, does it look last minute???

Marty,
Only those knowledgable in the turning arts would know it was a rush job…..
Doesn’t look rushed to me!!!

Just in case this didn’t work…..
Did you build a doghouse???

Won’t work Marty; she’s wise to all my tricks. You get credit for trying though!

Hey judging by the number of guys standing in front of the greeting cards at 6:00 tonight, I think Marty gets way lots of credit.

Andy, If we go out and buy chocolates today at half price, and put them up ‘til next year, would we still be livin’ life on the edge???

Thanks Natalie, I could have carved out a card if I hadn’t of stopped for a nap…..

Thanks Blackie…..

Yank, You’re still young, your wife expects you to be prompt. Guys like Andy and I are… well, more seasoned. Our wives quit expecting years ago. They’re happy that we can still find the dinner table…..
