    My Latest Wood Gloat

    A friend gave me some slabs of Redbud (in the pickup) and I got some Elm and Hackberry (in the trailer) from some standing dead trees that my third grade teacher needed taken down. It was a good day wood-wise.

    Gee, you look so much older than a third grader. (Bigger too)

    Nice haul!

    Jon,

    You'd be surprised how many third graders in East Texas are already shaving.

    It saves having to red-shirt them once they reach junior high.

    Great gloat Cody. Here and all this time I thought you were at least a fourth grader. Bummer.

    Man, that's a load of wood. Make my back hurt just thinking about it. It's a good hurt, though.

    That redbud will look great turned. Storing it might be a problem. I have some in the garage and the buggies are having a field day. Hard to discourage.

    Dear Cody,

    As a former English professor at a well known Texas university (one of whose members won the Heisman while I was there), I'd like to thank you for making this joke before I had the chance...

    BTW, that's a pretty nice haul. I should get back to turning someday...

    Thnaks,

    Bill

    You scored good! Espically the redbud, my brother has some deer antlers mounted on some and it's beautiful wood.

    Cody,

    Wow. What a great haul. How soon should we look for some bowls/HFs out of this load?

    Cody,
    Some of that wood has splits I can't see them but I feel their there. So to keep you safe send all of it to me cause I wouldn't want you to get hurt I'm just thinking of your safety.
