Well Well Well,I am a great believer in telling people when they have done both good and bad .Maybe it’s being a guy who truly tries to love all god’s children and find good in people.But I simply cannot continue with this forum without saying that you people deserve a big pat on the back. I am really touched by the cameraderie here and kindness shown by all here to each other.I am on a few sites but this one shows human nature at it’s best,it really does .I suppose being diagnosed with a form of parkinsons disease has made me a bit more aware of how things can turn out different from our plans.Don’t missunderstand me I make the best of it and am not a moper or the kind of man to wallow in sorrow.I truly love my wife Bronwen of 37 years and my 3 grown up sons,and when I am able and strong enough get out to my workshop as much as possible.I guess what I am trying to say it that it’s beautiful people such as you find on this site that restore ones faith in hmanity.I really am moved by the encouragement and help this group gives out to it’s friends and members.I sure hope I am around and made welcome for a time to come cause I like it here GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.LOVE BROTHERLY OF COURSE TO ALL OF YOU.ALISTAIR excuse my poor typing both now and in the future kindest regards Alistair

Alistair,

I believe it is folks like you that pull us all together. Many of us go about our lives without thinking too much about our health. When we read stories about our fellow jocks who have suffered illnesses or accidents it makes us realize how lucky we are.

But also I gain strength from your courage and positive attitude. I used to say to myself- “there by the grace of God..”, now I say “Will God grace me with their strength and courage”.

Thank you for being a Lumberjock.

“Living for the good of the whole” is a concept that everyone has to adopt sooner or later, easily or harder.

It really is evident on this site.

God bless you!

You’re absolutely right. This is a very good community. I can’t tell you how many boards I have visited many sites on the internet, and typically, you’ll see an abundance of swearing, and hateful talk. I’m absolutely sick of it, and that’s why I like it here so much. Hope it stays this way!

Alastair, My father was born in Inverness and came to the US in the twenties as a young boy. Please excuse me if I express an affection for all things Scottish. I have always been interested how woodworkers in Scotland pursue the hobby. When time, and health, permits perhaps you could post some stories about how/ where you get materials, cost of materials, what type of tools/machinery you have….ect. Actually building a project is one thing, but sharing your experiences is more valuable, in my opinion. Here’s hoping you the best and yes, we do have an awesome group here. Here’s to us, the Lumberjocks, myself and of course ALISTAIR.

Of course, as usual, I got the cart before the horse. I viewed your home page and was duly impressed with the wide array of machinery and photos of projects. You are definately light years beyond the beginner stage! Good on ya Gov and hang in there. Don’t let poor typing skills deprive us of your correspondence. Please.
