    Cool Canadian from Niagara

    I was born in England but was kidnapped at the age of eight by gypsies, who brought me to Canada and traded me to a band of Inuit. I escaped after ten years and made my way by snowshoe, dog sled, kayak and canoe to southern Ontario. I worked at several jobs, but eventually a job counsellor pointed out that my experience softening seal pelts by chewing them suited me admirably for a job in the Federal Civil Service, where I have worked the last 22 years. I have four adult kids, a wife and two lovely dogs, and do most of my woodworking in the driveway in the good weather.

    I recently had a quadruple bypass, but by the time spring comes I think I'll be able to do some actual work. I have a few projects in mind, and my wife is hoping I will actually finish one.

    I hope we will enjoy our time together.

    Welcome to the fold Roger. Driveway woodworking is an honorable past time and practiced by many here, including me. Looking forward to seeing you up and running this spring.
