I didn’t know about this “non-shop talk forum” either. Is there any limitation on subject matters? Or just let it rip?

hey there folks…howdy rivergirl, ellen and david...yes its nice to be able to chat again with the good folks here on lumberjocks…im in the very beginning of the bed so i think i will document the build with pictures and maybe do a three post blog, one with the pictures of the raw material. one of the project midway, and one of the final finished product…of coarse the one in the midway will have pictures of the details..joinery and such…i think it will be fun…so i imagine that with summer here...river girl is outside again going at her wood work, and i hope for you robbin that your business is getting off the ground…have you worked out the details of shipping your doors…its really not hard…its a matter of getting the right packaging materials so you can safely ship it with out it getting damaged..and then picking a shipper who will do a larger package like your doors…but im sure you have gotten to all of that..and i hope you are successful…even though the economy is slower…a lot of wood workers have shut down, leaving opportunity for the ones still trying..so i hope and wish you well…and it looks like david is still dancing…when do you head for home…or is that a way off ??...you folks have a great day…ill poke my head in once in awhile now..its good to have the forum back…..grizz

I will be looking forward to seeing a blog on your building the bed! I am sure it will be wonderful! Just take your time and don’t overdo in the hot weather.

Yep, it is good to see what everyone is up to on this forum. I like that it is not as formal and people don’t feel restricted as to what they can chat about. It will be nice to see how everyone is doing. Glad you checked in! :)

Howdy grizz, nice tread you have going. I see you’re in Alabama, I’ve got a lot of kin down in Wicksburg. I’m waiting to see what your birdhouse is going to look like. I’ve noticed your post on William’s blog. I got here by way of poopiekat’s unwanted buddy thread, Saw my buddy Roger and noticed that he was back. Glad to see Roger posting again. Hope you’re doing well “Rex” And a hello to all the rest of you LJs.

Grizz, it’s to close to supper time for that sandwich picture. I just fired up the grill for fajitas and have to go make the guacamole.

Hi guys. Nice to “see” y’all in this revamped coffee Lounge Martin has created for our “Time outs” and odd ball subjects. Let’s enjoy this forum and make sure we don’t infringe the rules.
I’m hoping to get up to speed on posting – still working on some H issues, but I’ll get there and in the meantime enjoy the posts and joining in where I can. Yes my crazy humor is intact and raring to go – watch out!

To all the LJs who had a good time in the old coffee lounge, I hope you and new members will able to use this forum as a break or a lifeline for when the chips are down.

Have fun and be mindful of the rules.

now i have heard roger aka REX TALK BEFORE AND HE IS 100 % TRUE BLUE BRITISH…THERE is no playing around with the accent..its true blue….now , so the reason i say that , is because hes talking about the chips being down..so i was looking about me feet and didnt see any chips…for those who dont know..fish and chips over in England means fish and tatters…like french fries…but more to there style, there round chips…just like they sound..so roger is really trying to get me hungry and using his code words…very cheeky of you roger..or shall i say rex…i dont like the name rex..your a much better roger…..so get tid of the other..please’’’’’i think you should try for the birdhouse contest roger…i think you can muster that…...check the petro under the bonnet and lets give it a whiz…....what say ya roger…...its better then tossin the laundry lady…..dont ask what that means…not right sure myself…but it might be the kind of word that would get a bloak into trouble…maybe roger can tell us what we can say and what we can not…..time for me bedtrime….....grizz

Grizz.
I am typing this message slowly as I know you do not read very fast.
Sorry to disappoint you, but I do not have an accent, but I do have a dialect, the fact is you have an accent, not me.
As for the “Rex” additional, I got it in a Stumpnubs post where he depicted me in a photo as being King Robert Bruce of Scotland leading the charge in the battle of the CL. Rex is Latin for King, that’s how it happened.
As for my nationality, I consider myself a 50/50, half British and half American, yep a true red, white and blue mongrel of the best countries in the world.
Can’t take you up on the Birdhouse challenge right now, but let’s keep it in mind – and maybe change it to a cat house?
I’m not sure if many other LJs know about your service to the health awareness system. Don’t be shy and ‘fess up. Folks, Grizz is a keystone participant in a study conducted by the CDC where he (at great sacrifice to his own health) constructs and devours huge quantities of obnoxious backwoods foodstuffs so that studies can be made about how much the human digestive system can tolerate, given a steady diet of foul ingredients and mixtures. The Grizz also serves on a test group producing volatile gasses as an alternative to Petroleum, but it seems they are at odds with the “Clean Air Act” people.
Some LJs may remember that Grizz sported a large beard, but decided to “come clean” as it really did not do justice to his Red Dress or Snapper.

Have a wonderful day ALL…....:-)
