Izzy… You so crazy!

I love it.

This could come in handy during the Croquet World Cup Championship Series. (CWCCS)

Nothing ruins the day like a cracked ball, but this could keep the festivities rolling.

Izzy,

It has become apparent to me that since you retired, your wife told you what we all heard: “stay out of my hair”. Well, I’m glad to see you are using your “alone” time well, and keeping your brain sharp. I enjoy your adventures in woodworking, quite the genius of thinking out of the box. Keep it up, I’ll be looking for more inventive adventures with Izzy the Jigmaster.

The grass is so much greener outside the box, don’t you think?

Izzy. Put down the mouse, step away from the keyboard, pick up the phone and enroll at M.I.T.
The world really needs more of your thinking. And fast.

I’ve seen most of your posts and I am impressed by your Avant-garde, un-ethical approach to everything.
Well done sir.
