    Thoughts on the Lathe

    To much seriousness lately.

    Just the other day LOML was saying how I've been spending a lot of time skewing around on the lathe.
    There was also something about how all those tools really gouged a hole in the pocket book especially with the economy and everyone scraping by.
    I appreciated the sentiment but assured her that it wood all turn out fair in the end and I sure couldn't part with any of them.
    Anyway its late here, I need to turn off the banjo music hang up my quill and slide off to bed.

    Like the Crane said - Boom Chuckalucka!

    Don't get near my wife, she might kill you. She was the registrar at a college. There was a prof. who was a constant punster. So constantly did he pun that Myrna was turned off from puns. Then the poor lady married me, a punster.

    The prof was really sharp. When he had to retire at age 65 he went to law school. He was still the sharpest lawyer around when he was in his 90s. Since I moved an hour and a half of So. Calif. traffic away I don't know how long he continued. I did hear of him off and on for a few years.

    I'll just tool off now. Enjoy,

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
