    I just finished with my third phone call with Glenn today. I just had to say that in spite of the razzing I give him on Family Woodworking all of the time; he is a great guy and a true friend as well as being my son. He is a joy to be with.

    I will admit, in public, that I am probably a posterior pain to him with all of my computer and woodworking questions. He just pleasantly gives me the answer---Even if it is the third time I have asked him the same question.

    Just to confirm that this is a post about wood, I will say, “Life would be boring without him.”

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

    Nothing better than a proud dad.

    I'm sure he's pretty proud of the "old man" as well

    Indeed, you did yourself proud with Glenn.

    He puts up with you because dads are special. But you already know that.

    seems to me from what little I know from this website, that glenn had a good teacher.

    Jim, you are an inspiration to many of us here, myself included ofcourse, you are a positive person, you never have a bad thing to say about anyone, you encourage people to advance their woodworking(skills, knowledge, practice, etc), and you are just one interesting person.

    glenn(and his brother) are lucky. I have no doubt what a good man glenn is, you helped mold him.(jews call this nachas, your son gives you nachas.)
