    Shop Motto

    You've probably seen it before, but wifey saw it in a catalog and surprised me with it today. HAD to post it.

    I came out of the womb like Moses down from the mount, with a Thesarus in one arm and a manuscript in the other.
    Mom was happy they weren’t stone tablets.

    I'll bet you don't have a dog that will stick it's tail in the dog holes if you had them.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Those are classic ;-) I have a sign that says

    This Machine has no Brain
    Use Your OWN"

    "Cut Onc", "Cut Onc" The physical appearance of the sign along with the statement is hilarious.

    Don't have this in my shop (yet) but a sign my Grandmother had in her house as long as I can remember: "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get" Seems fitting for a shop. Jim.
