  • My past 24 hours

    Man, what a lousy past 24 hours! We had a tornado pass thru our town and the neighboring town where my Mom lives yesterday afternoon, alot of damage, no power untill an hour ago, and now it gets personal, my mom and 92 year old Aunt were caught in the twister driving back from a Dr. visit! The driver side glass was blown out and yes my mom and Aunt were cut by flying glass and debris along with the car being pushed as my mom described it into a ditch. I took the day off from work to help in clean up of the town, I really am always impressed with the local communities pitching in to help at times like this.
    A good side note here, I got to buy a new toy, a portable generator so I could keep my Mom's house in electricity till they got the town's power back.

    Now a rotten side note, when I went to go and pick my Mom's car up from the tow service lot, somebody had stolen the radio and battery out of it!

    The good,the bad, and ugly!

    I'm tired and going to bed.............

    Wow, that is a tough 24 hours. I sure hope your mother and aunt weren't too cut up. It's nice to know the majority of the public are good people but there is always 1 bad apple on every tree.

        Thank goodness everyone pulled through okay. It's sickening that some individuals will exploit these situations but it still sounds as if there are plenty of decent community-spirited people around.

          Bill,
          I'm sorry to hear about that. At least all survived. It's amazing the levels some folks will sink to in disasters.

              Hey Bill,
              So sorry to hear about your Mom and Aunt,I am glad they are ok.
              It says a lot about your character for taking time off the job to help with the cleanup.
              Take care,

                Glad to hear that they are OK.
                Even better to hear that everyone is chipping in work to help those less fortunate,

                Best thing......people who do rotten deeds make thier own heaven, and it won't be the one that the good people go to.

                Take care Bill. all the good folk are behind you

                  The tornados and constant wind is the main reason I moved back home to Oregon away from Kansas. Now I have very little wind and no tornados and it only rains once a years (for nine months)

                      Thanks ya'll! Mom's doing fine as is my Aunt. The town is up and running.

                      Several homes and business buildings unfortunately aren't as lucky.

                      But no death's or severe injuries. I'm still kinda running on empty, had to work today, real busy there, considering I work at a Home Improvement Center!

                      Ya'll take care and God bless.

                        Just found this post and "WOW" is all I can say.

                        VERY GLAD to hear your loved ones are okay. Man, I'll take earthquakes and upset grizzly mom's over tornado's ANY day.

                        Got your "note" the other day also - THANKS!

                          Tornadoes? Earthquakes? Upset grizzly moms?


                          And I thought I had a bad day cause one of my dogs got sprayed by a skunk this morning.


                          You guys have a radical way of putting things in perspective for me!

                          Thanks (I guess)

                              Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                              Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                              My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                              I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                              Was it a good idea.....?...

                              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
