Thanks great news papa.

I know how it is. My brother and I switched off for 2 years caring for mom before we had to get her to a nursing home.

Yes, That is good news. I’ve missed your posts, so I figured something was up. You are an honorable son to take care of Mom like that.

thanks everyone.. hey Dan whats up with you? got any good jigs coming out soon?,,,
Thanks Joe, that will be my winter project this year. Hoping to get that and a foot powered band saw done over the cold months.. Right now I am updating my shaving horse.. saw some really good ideas in a book by Landis that shows some of the really old horses.. I like things old.. if they have been working good for a couple hundred years, they should work good for me.. Its just good to be back working with the wood,, I really missed it.. Don’t let my wife know.. she thinks it was her… lol….Papa
