Topic tags/keywords: humor happy hour clock

My youngest daughter, Sam and her partner, Jake, bought me a new clock for the workshop…as a special Xmas gift… Thanks…I love it…

I put it up this week and have only just taken some shots of it in its new home…

A bit blurred but when you read the words on the clock you may understand…

Getting clearer and closer….

Certainly makes the time in the workshop very happy….

Greater joy has no man than he who has a loving child. My friend, you are one of the richest men I know.

Tell your daughter “thank you” from me, for her gift has given my friend happiness and this in turn has given me happiness.

Thank you for sharing your gift and your joy with us. As some wise man once said, “A burden shared is half a burden. A joy shared is twice a joy.” I think that might be the idea behind this wonderful place we have, where we can share our burdens of needing skills we don’t yet have and share the joys we take in the things we make with our own hands and minds.

Have a fantastic today and a better tomorrow.

Your buddy in Canada,

Paul

Great gift Larry, I agree with Tiny, “seeing it bring happiness to you , brings happiness to me” now lets just hope your straight lines don’t come out a bit blurry.

The perfect gift Larry. They obviously know you pretty well. Besides just telling the time it will be a great reminder for you of the important things in life when you get old and absent minded like myself.
