    Can't remember if I have that one. Will need to look at the collection tomorrow
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Geez Larry, I must come again there, I'm forgetting all what I learnt about your particular way of expressing. (No offence intended) I can't make a sense of what you mean, do you mean round pieces of wood? if not what do mean by "round to its"?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I'm confused as well.

    Toni, a round-to-it comes from the idiom 'getting around-to-it' meaning finally getting something done that was long planned. It is also used as an expression of procrastination, as in 'when I get around to it.' Thus a round wooden medallion called a round-to-it was created as a humorous poke.

    Aren't American idioms a hoot?

    There is a procrastinators organization. I heard about it in my late teens and planned to join. I figure it's too late now, by the time I get a roundtuit and they reply I'll be gone!

    While some people consider me a pro crastinator I think that is an exaggeration. I will acknowledge that I am probably the ranking amateur crastinator though!

    I came across mine the other day. Thanks Larry.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
