  • This Memorial Day

    Today while you're enjoying your picnics please take a brief pause and thank all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy our picnics and parades or whatever it is that you do today. My family was relatively fortunate in that my 3 brothers and I were all unscathed. My grandmother was not as fortunate as she was the first gold star mother of my hometown in WWI.

    at least a brief pause because they all gave us a lifetime and sacrificed their own .

      I would like to remember my brother Samuel S. Walker, USAF, A-10 pilot. Lost his life in defense of his country.

      Also, all the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us to enjoy the freedom we have.

        Saw this on another forum today and wanted to share:

        Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom. Thank them both today.

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

              Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
