  • Cajun Night Before Christmas

    'Twas the night before Christmas, an' all t'ru de house,
    Dey don't a t'ing pass, not even a mouse.
    De chirren been nezzle good snug on de flo',
    An' Mama pass de pepper t'ru de crack on de do'.
    Den Mama in de fireplace done roas' us de ham,
    Stir up de gumbo, an' make de baked yam.
    Den out on de bayou dey got such a clatter... Make soun' like old Boudreaux done fall off his ladder.
    I run like a rabbit to got to de do'... Trip over de dawg an' fall on de flo'!
    As I look out de do' in de light o' de moon, I t'ink, "Manh, you crazy, or got ole too soon."
    Cuz dere on de bayou when I stretch ma' neck stiff... Dere's eight alligator a-pullin' de skiff...
    An' a little fat drover wit' a lone polein' stick... I know r'at away got to be ole St. Nick.
    Mo' fas'er an' fas'er de 'gator dey came. He whistle an' holler an' call dem by name:
    "Ha, Gaston!
    Ha, Tiboy!
    Ha, Pierre an' Alcee!
    Gee, Ninette!
    Gee, Suzette!
    Celeste an' Renee!"
    To de top o' de porch dem ole 'gator clime! Wit' de skiff full o' toy an' St. Nicklus behin'.
    Den on top de porch roof it soun' like de hail When all dem big 'gator done sot down dey tail!
    Den down de chimney he fell wit' a bam... An' St. Nicklus fall an' sit on de yam!
    "SACRE!" he axclaim "Ma pant got a hole. I done sot mase'f on dem red hot coal!"
    He got on his foots an' jump like a cat... Out to de flo' where he lan' wit' a SPLAT!
    He was dress in musk-rat from his head to his foot An' his clothes is all dirty wit' ashes an' soot.
    A sack full o' playt'ing he t'row on his back. He look like a burglar, an' dass fo' a fack!
    His eyes how dey shine...his dimple, how merry! Maybe he been drink de wine from blackberry!
    His cheek was like rose...his nose like a cherry... On secon' tought maybe he lap up de sherry!
    Wit' snow-white chin whisker an' quiverin' belly, He shook when he laugh like de stromberry jelly!
    But a wink in his eye...an' a shook o' his head... Make my confidance dat I soon got to be scared.
    He don' do no talkin'...gone straight to his work... Put playt'ing in sock an' den turn wit' a jerk!
    He put bot' his han' dere on top o' his head, He cas' an eye on de chimney an' den he done said: "Wit' all o' dat fire an' dem burnin' hot flame... Me I ain' goin' back by de way dat I came."
    So he run out de do' an' he clime to de roof... He ain' no fool, him for to make one more goof.
    He jump in his skiff an' crack his big whip. De 'gator move down an' don' make one slip.
    An' I hear him shout loud as a splashin' he go: "Marry C'rismas to all...till I saw you some mo'!"

          Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          by Rolf
          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
