  • 43 years ago

    Hi gang.
    I'd like to brag a bit about my good wife.
    I met her when I was in the Air Force serving in Japan on the island of Okinawa. She was working in a restaurant I frequented and I would visit with her there. After a few months I asked her out. On that first date I proposed marriage and she accepted.
    We have three children, each one more wonderful than the other two.
    She is the best friend I have.
    I don't want to get carried away here so I will just say it has been an adventure for 43 years and the saga continues.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

    OH, I forgot to add that I am thinking of buying her that new router I have been wanting.

      Congratulations and best wishes for many more years of wedded bliss and adventure. Sounds like it might get a bit more adventurous if you give her the router.

        Happy for both of you Stephen. My wife and I are re-newing our vow's on the 16th of this month....plus my wife is turning 60 as well. The wife has been so busy getting everything just right around here....we are doing this big party here at our place. Invited about 125 people, but I doubt there will be that many show up. We have a band and tons of food...BYOB and you will be ready. I just wish one of our 5 grown kids could make it...

          Soooo, you are a little slow to get started, but once you set a course, it's full speed ahead, huh?

          Congratulations! For the good decision 43 years ago and for sticking with it.

                          Thanks heaps for the fun replies.
                          I think hanging on during the lean years has made the retirement sooo much better. With our pensions, ss and part time work we are doing really better than we did when working. Can't figure it out, unless we did crappy when working.

                                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                                The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.

                                Thank you all for the info. Sounds like itโ€™s talent or practice issue not my saws. Wife already gave permission to buy a new one. I will wait tho
