    I'm in trouble now !!

    Ok here is the story. I was at work today but with the extreme heat and a advisory for people with respritory conditions to take it easy I was forced to come home after a pretty intense respritory attack. Nothing to worry about just ran out of the meds on the weekend and had to see the doc todayget more. I like my Doc he knows thta I have just got back to work so he hands me a couple of packs of sample puffer meds ( aprox 300 bucks worth) God bless him.

    Anyways when leaving the docs office I saw neatly stacked on the side of the road a pile of blocks all cut like they were originally for turning blanks. I did a U turn and grabbed them. They are feather light and one looks punky but the rest look like they have been sitting in a dry room for years. When the wife saw them she got all excited too. So I know i am in trouble as she is starting to think like a turner.

    I'm so proud of my wife whenever she lets me know about turning wood she sees around the neighborhood. I have her trained well.

    Ha! Who am I kidding? She just lets me THINK I have her trained.

    So Murphy doesn't always win. He tried to mess with your job and your meds but the shop-gods bestowed a roadside gift upon thee. Cool score.

    If I listened to my wife, I would have wood stacked everywhere...she'll see a tree that's been trimmed and the wood laying in a yard...she thinks there's probably some good turning wood in there... we were in Woodcraft yesterday looking for a particular pen blank... she was more excited about all the wood than I was... if I had taken all the wood she wanted to pick out would have cost me about $1000 to have gotten out the door... SS check won't cover quite that much wood. .. you gotta love her though!

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
