  • No One Slept with Mommy

    Ever notice how a 4-year-old's voice is louder than 200
    adult voices?

    Several years ago, I returned home from a trip just when a
    storm hit, with crashing thunder and severe lightning. As I
    came into my bedroom about 2 a.m., I found my two children in
    bed with my wife, Lyne, apparently scared by the loud storm. I resigned
    myself to sleeping in the guest bedroom that night.

    The next day, I talked to the children, and explained that
    it was OK to sleep with Mom when the storm was bad, but when
    I was expected home, please don't sleep with Mom that night.

    They said O.K.

    After my next trip several weeks later, Lyne and the
    children picked me up in the terminal at the appointed time.
    Since the plane was late, everyone had come into the terminal
    to wait for my plane's arrival, along with hundreds of other
    folks waiting for their arriving passengers.

    As I entered the waiting area, my son saw me, and came
    running shouting, "Hi, Dad! I've got some good news!"

    As I waved back, I said loudly, "What is the good news?"

    "The good news is that nobody slept with Mommy while you
    were away this time!" Alex shouted.

    The airport became very quiet, as everyone in the waiting
    area looked at Alex, then turned to me, and then searched the
    rest of the area to see if they could figure out exactly who
    his Mom was.

      The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

      When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
      Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

      Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
      by mccrookston
      First time posting.
      I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
      I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
      Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
      Any ideas on what might be causing...

      That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

      I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
