Well, Happy April Fools Day. Can you believe I started planning this a year ago. I thought I made a lot of mistakes that tipped you all off, but I guess you didn’t catch on. If I would of had more time “Bag Boy” would have been more involved. And he definitely would have been more obnoxious. He did start out by calling everyone “Dude”.

I hope this caught all of you by surprise … Happy April Fools Day !!!

The funny thing (to me) is that just yesterday I was looking at your history thinking to myself, “odie has been posting a lot less lately. wonder what he’s been up to”. I never would have guessed this though. You and unknownwoodworker are both quite humorous though. thanks for the laughs.

Now you’ve got me all confused! Do I look for the “Halo” or the “Bag” at the Sac WW Show?

Happy April Fools Day!.............

Neat trick Odie. Going “undercover” as it were, even hiding the halo. Must be something in the northern Calif air.

Haha, the joke’s on you. It’s April 2 here.
What finish did you use on the bag?
Double the Odie for half the price – who-da thunk it?

Q. How do you tell Odie and the Unknownwoodworker apart?

A. One old bag has more wrinkles than the other.

What did you do for the other 11 months 29 days and 23 hours after you picked out the bag, cut out the eye holes, changed your shirt and took the picture?

I always guessed the unknown woodworker was Norm or some other famous person like Boy George.
Even thought it might be someone evil criminal on the FBI’s most wanted list.
Guess Odie got me …

I just had a thought…who else is Odie? Do you have multiple personalities… Maybe you are all the “dogs”? You are keen on that blog…hmmm….
