    Hi gang,

    I 've been keeping up with my online family here (as time permits) ....kind've like reading the newspaper, but haven't had much chance to respond.
    Anyway, next Saturday the 28th The Shop Widow and I are officially tying the knot It will be a Hallo-Wedding with costumes and everything, in the woods by the creek at our house, a pig pickin, and then off to Salem Mass. for the Halloween hoopla up there .......I would be just as happy camping for a week but this is her dream trip
    Anyway, I hope to catch up on posts tonite. If I miss you, please don't take it personally ....jeez you guys have been busy while I was away !

    well congrats. I thought when you said "making an honest woman of her", you were kicking your wife out of the house to get a job, or something along those lines.

      Hi Robert

      Congratulations to you and your bride . I hope the day brings you everything that you wish for yourselves and it marks the start of a new, happy time which will last for many many years to come.

              I was just thinking... keep the vampires out of the wedding photographs!

                A Halloween wedding with a honeymoon to Salem being her dream trip???
                Maybe a family reunion up there?
                Is her name Samantha, Endora or Tabitha?
                Might want to look a little deeper into her past.
                Just kidding.
                Good Luck and Best Wishes!

                  Gill, don't you know that you can't take a photo of a vampire? Their image doesn't show up. You've got to check out a couple Count Dracula movies.

                  Way to go Robert. I was wondering what happened to you. I hope, for your sake, that there are no longer any witch hunts in Salem.

                  Are you going to scrollsaw the wedding cake?

                  I'll wait to congratulate you after the shindig is over and you've really tied the knot.

                      C'mon Mike - that's why I offered the advice to keep vampires out of the photographs .

                      I like your photograph, Trout, although it's the starkest warning I've ever seen about the dangers of passive smoking.

                        C'mon man, if she got an outside job who would cook and take care of me and stuff ? That's a job in itself !

                        actually there is no telling who ( or what ) will show up in the photos as all attendees are requested to be in costume . The pictures should be quite interesting Trout's , very kewl man

                        No I didn't scroll the cake but I scrolled the guestbook, a binder for the vows that the minister will hold , and personal portraits for the minister, best man and bridesmaid I said, I been busy !

                        Don't worry, I checked her out already ...used the Monty Python criteria and she's not a witch...yet. Living with me a while longer may fix that though

                        A pig pickin is just redneck slang for an old fashioned pig roast . An entire pig ( 100 lb for this one ) is dressed and split down the middle ...'butterflyed " so to speak and placed on a large hinge-lidded cooker....gas or charcoal ( imagine a 55 gal drum on it's side split so the top raises up ) . He is slowly roasted all day ..about 8 or 9 hours and in the final stages, in the good ol' southern tradition, he is doused with a vinegar based BBQ sauce. Near the end of the process, the die-hards ( like myself ) will begin sampling the parts that are done by " picking " them off while the lid is open and the cook is distracted Since it is an all day affair, there is lots of fellowship, horseshoe pitchin, guitar pickin,a beer or twelve consumed ( none for the cook, that's the law ) etc. Traditionally guests provide the sides ...potato salad, beans , slaw, bread, desserts ....whatever they want to contribute. About 2 o clock we will stop long enough to have a wedding and then continue with the party
                        We have one of these every year for Halloween . It is one of our favorite holidays and I actually proposed during last years affair. It was a complete secret to everyone including her and quite a powerful moment as it was done in the evening by the fire with about 50 people in attendence costumes though

                        Thanx everyone for the good wishes ....we are very excited !

                          I wish you many years of shackled bliss, there is no other life like it.

                          I think every man should marry his goulfriend. If she can put up with you and scrolling too then she is a keeper for sure.

                          Although Salem Mass, is not the place many would go for a honeymoon celebration, it is her wish and you are starting married life off right.

                          As always when someone gets married I have to offer unsolicited advice. It is a code I can't deny so here it is....

                          All the best, Carl

                                Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                                We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.
