  • Sawdust King: Tim, please don't read (Just kidding, couldn't resist)

    Great Shot!

    The Reverend Francis Norton woke up Sunday morning and
    realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early
    spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

    So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick
    and convinced him to say Mass for him that day. As soon as
    the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out
    of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he
    knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his

    Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was
    Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

    At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord
    while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're
    not going to let him get away with this, are you?"

    The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not." Just then
    Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the
    pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the
    hole. It WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE! St. Peter was
    astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let
    him do that?"

    The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?"

    Thanks Marcel, Here's one also......

    Kenny moved toTexas and bought a donkey from a farmer for 100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day he drove up and said "Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the donkey died.
    Kenny replied," Well, then, just give me my money back."
    The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already.
    Kenny said, "OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey."
    The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"
    Kenny, "I'm going to raffle him."
    The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead donkey."
    Kenny said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just don't tell anybody he is dead."
    A month later, the farmer met up with Kenny and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"
    "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $998.00."
    The farmer said," Didn't anyone complain?"
    "Just the guy who won. So I gave him back his two dollars."

          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
