LJ member Dave Mitchell and his wife stopped by tonight.
Dave, also known as Splinters, lives in the far northwestern corner of Montana in West Glacier. That is at the western gate of Glacier National Park.
He and his wife are traveling to the midwest for a visit with family and they had to come right by my place in Billings, MT. Since I live just spittin’ distance off the freeway and the KOA is just down the street they decided to stop by.
Dave is a real Montana kind of guy, a real mountain of a man! I felt so small standing next to him.
We had a great visit. In the morning, Rita and I plan to have breakfast with Dave and his wife before they take off. It was fun to have him stop by, to show him my shop, and have a good laugh. I swear that LJ’s are the best people.
I just wish we had a couple of days to hang out and swap shop stories.
Peace, Love, & Woodworking
