I’ve spend the weekend baby-sitting with my twin Grand-children (3yr old). Today they went off to nursery school and I had a couple of hours free.
My wife babysat last week while my daughter and her new husband were off on their honeymoon.
So I head out in my car looking for something to do.
I’m not much of a shopper, unless I have a purpose and like Jockmike2 stated last week he was returning stuff that he didn’t need. I just thought I’d be ahead of the game and not even buy (which keeps the returning process to a minimum)
Then I thought of Lew. I had his address in my GPS and I clicked it and it stated that I’d get there in 1 Hr and 2 minutes. So I called him. He was up for a visit.
The GPS lied. I think it considers one mile of city and one mile of country as taking the same time. It didn’t work out that way for me. The traffic in Gettysburg was not bad but it still takes a fair amount of time to weave around all of the souvenir shops.
I arrived at Lew’s about 1:30 hours later and sat down for a cup of coffee and a plate of cookies. Lew’s wife was trying to get rid of cookies. (Lew sent the plate home with me when I left. – really just the cookies not the plate)
We talked for a while and then went to the shop. (This item is required to be accomplished to be considered as an “Official LumberJock” visit.)
Lewis coming to the Mason Dixon Woodworkers meeting to present a workshop on his Special Rolling Pins. So we were discussing the jig that he is going bring. His jig will probably not fit the table saw at the workshop so I was wanting to see that we make a comparable one for his use at the shop.
A great visit. I left him a couple of pieces of wood that I found in my car.
