  • Shhhhh!

    The boss of a big company needed to call one of his
    employees about an urgent problem with one of the main
    He dialed the employees home phone number and was
    greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?".
    Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the
    boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?".
    "Yes.", whispered the small voice.
    "May I talk with him?", the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No.".
    Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?".
    "Yes.", came the answer.
    "May I talk with her?".
    Again the small voice whispered, "No.".
    Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be
    left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a
    message with the person who should be there watching over the
    "Is there any one there besides you?", the boss asked the child.
    "Yes", whispered the child, "A policeman."
    Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employees home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?".
    "No, he is busy.", whispered the child.
    "Busy doing what?", asked the boss.
    "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman.", came the whispered answer.
    Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded
    like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss
    asked, "What is that noise?".
    " A hello-copper.", answered the whispering voice.
    "What is going on there?", asked the boss, now alarmed.
    In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper!".
    Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, "Why are they there?".
    Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a
    muffled giggle, "They are looking for me!".

    Take care,

      I had considered useing a hot glue gun but I like to be able to reuse some of the bigger waste pieces. Also when I use brads and they extend through the bottom piece I am always carefull to take a small hammer and tap the points back up flush with the bottom piece so I do not scratch the table.

      I use a pin nailer in the waste areas. The brad and pin nail guns are a wonderful thing.

      Good idea. I’ll have to try that when I get to the point of stack cutting. 👍
