    Wood Gloat

    Well I have been out all morning doing clock service calls. It has been keeping me pretty busy with not much turning time. Anyway got home and my wife told me I had a heavy box. I just ordered some NIP a day or so ago but that couldn't get here that quick. Anyway it was a box of redwood, pen blanks and a beautiful pen from Jim Burr. Thank you Jim. It is truly appreciated.

    Why am I not surprised it was Jim Burr? That guy has sent more pen 'n wood surprise packages than anyone else I can think of.

    Yep, Jim is a gentleman and a scholar. The pen is beautiful and will be my everyday good pen. I just turned a bowl for the minister of finance. She picked up a piece and said make me a candy dish for the coffee table. So you know me I always obey orders.
