I have quite enjoyed LJ’s for the most part

So I write my eulogy as I am done. The day is fast approaching where I have said my last word, my last comment, my last tirade about useless nonsense.

And ya, blah blah, I have done this before but my request to Martin will not be withdrawn, my membership will be terminated. …………Its a done deal pending when Martin gets back from his worldly travels collecting his picture perfect pics, of this the beautiful earth to which we live.

I’ve made friends, apparently made enemies as A1Jim and that tremendously handsome fella, the “Romney” frequent flyer (maybe a closet romantic crush) guy blocked me for religious and political reasons and who knows. I could care less

For the friends ,pm me, if you would like to keep in touch. Those who know me, know I will help if time permits so we can swap e-mails, trade stories. With a long rest from the litany of crappy reviews, non sensical comments, who knows, maybe some day I will become a “lurker”

To DKV. You, not sure why but I have thoroughly enjoyed your wit, your provocations and your endless spirit of patience. I admire that you do not loose your cool and hope that you continue. Unlike you, I have lost my cool and this is unacceptable. I need a rest from the rats you battle : )) Take it easy on Grizz as you know as well as I know, we all fight demons, some just hide it better.

Its been a good ride

I will continue posting until Martin pulls the pin : )) and “Boom” gone. I have and must stay focused on the means to an end.

Good luck and may the smell of good wood inspire you to “Carry On”

Kind Regards

Moron aka; for every idiot who speaks b4 they should : ))

Hope you find something to replace it that you like just as much.

MORON ,Thanks for the heads up . Already have most of your works downloaded from from the last time you were thinking of leaving . That cabinet that you made that your little girls used to play in was something that I related to .Mine had mirrored doors and my little girls used to hide and play in it also . I was showing my little girl ( now grown and with a baby ) something or other of your work and she noticed your avatar and asked “Whats that ” ? . I replied ” Thats a diarama of a little wooden man , with his bibs down ,next to a log .” What does that mean ,Dad ? ” Well.dear ,when you are out hunting and you need to go number two , then it is best to find a log . I, as a child , have seen your grandpa do this on more than one occasion while out hunting , and believe me , .......not a treasured memory ” !!! Then we both laughed uproariously … thanks from both of us for providing some humor and sharing your woodworking with us . Best wishes for you.and regards always …....MOMENT .

Tell me where you go. The bantering has been great.

I have enjoyed it.

I had enough of LJ’s for a while, it really got away from what it was when I joined, so I went off (playing chess badly). But I came back, and I’m glad I did. Just don’t let the idiots get to you.
You are a very talented woodworker, sorry you’re leaving. It’s LJ’s loss.

Reviews where a freshly opened box of hamster fodder is a given 5 stars

expert advice from droves of woodworkers who’s greatest achievement is a sanded block of construction lumber or the 73rd thousandth pen

political non sense

religious furor

gangs of groupies armed with endless bandwidth

Finishing expertise right of the label of a can bought at Wal-Mart.

This site was a gift many years ago and almost 5 years later has since been reduced to the above. A small view into a microcosm of the world to which we live where greed and ego seem to have no bounds and all funded by the corporate giants that so many love to bash. A perfect paradox

I’ll miss ya.

I’ve learned more from the cranky ol’ farts in my life. You tend to think first, ask questions after being stumped for a decent amount of time. The replies are always worth it.
