The LOML works at Wheatridge Retirement Center here in town. She wanted to take some of my turnings to display for a week or so for the residents to see and wanted me to explain the how's, what's, etc. So I did. Well the director of the Carnagie Arts Center came down to give some arts classes to the residents. She asked my wife who's woodturnings those were. So my wife told her. My wife called me and told me to come over as someone wanted to talk to me. Anyway she wants me to bring a bunch of my woodturnings down to the Arts Center to be one of the featured artist for the months of November and December. She also wants me to make enough Christmas ornaments and mini birdhouses to decorate a Christmas tree with. She told me to put prices on them if I wanted to sell them and that the Arts Center would get 30%. So I will be taking down around 30 turnings to display plus about 40 ornaments and hopefully will sell some. So today I have been turning bottle stoppers and more mini birdhouses. I got some pepper and salt mills turned. So this is kind of exciting for me.
Retirement: That’s when you return from work one day
and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
