    going a bit lathe crazy

    A good friend who I went turkey hunting in SC last weekend is a SC turkey calling champ. He's gotten call maker ...... started by show casing his calls at the NWTF Conversation. He told me we need to do mine and there some of the best he's played. So if i get a spot for 2017 I'll need to have 350 to 400 calls mare up. He sold 200 the in half a day for the other caller and started taking orders. He tells me these will be hot. so... my summer bike trip may be put off to work on the lathe.

    I may be dreaming big but I got the bug like I did with the painting. Just looking for the next exciting adventure.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    350-400 That'll keep you hopping!

    Don't stop the painting though, you're to good at that to stop!

    Awesome! I'm going to be busy on the lathe this summer, but I'm not making 400 of anything.
    Cheers,
