So everyone here knows I've been laid up for a while. I was in a rut not being able to get around much. So before I was cut up, Vaughn and I made arrangements for another turning day. My wife, Stacey was dead set against it...but my warranty ran out a long time ago so she can't trade me in My son and I tossed my lathe and tools in the truck and I headed south. The drive of 3 hours with the seatback on the incisions was the worst part.
As with the last time and I suspect the next, we chat a lot…turn a little…chat some more…turn something a bit more…chat about something else…pack up and hit it. No pic’s yet because my Moonscape isn’t done yet. But in the immortal Vaughn style…I came home with some cool chunks for later use. He also had a handful of pen blanks from Michael James for me. They'll come in handy if I learn how to make pens!
Really…the trip renewed me and the 85 degree day helped sweat out some of the crap that no doubt is still floating around system. I felt so happy I went by the hospital today and had a great chat with all my friends. Stacey finally had to push me out, she knew I was tired.
Thank you my friend… hope we have another one in us!
