  • Blonde in the Everglades

    A young blonde was on vacation and driving through the Everglades.
    She wanted to take home a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way, but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.
    After becoming very frustrated with the "no haggle on prices" attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, "Well then, maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator, so I can get a pair of shoes for free!"

    The shopkeeper said with a sly, knowing smile, "Little lady,just go and give it a try!"

    The blonde headed out toward the swamps, determined to catch an
    alligator. Later in the day, as the shopkeeper is driving home, he
    pulls over to the side of the levee where he spots that same young
    woman standing waist deep in the murky water, shotgun in hand.
    Just then, he spots a huge 9-foot gator swimming rapidly toward
    her. With lightning speed, she takes aim, kills the creature and
    hauls it onto the slimy bank of the swamp.
    Lying nearby were 7 more of the dead creatures, all lying on
    their backs. The shopkeeper stood on the bank, watching in silent
    The blonde struggled and flipped the gator onto its
    back. Rolling her eyes heaven-ward and screaming in great
    frustration, she shouts out, "S**T...THIS ONE'S BAREFOOT TOO!"

    Good one Chuck

      I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

      John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

      Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

      I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

      This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

      I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

      Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

      How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
