  • The Italian Funeral Dog

    An Italian man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.

    A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking single file.


    The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached t he Italian man walking the dog and said:

    "I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"

    "My wife's."

    ''What happened to her?"


    "She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her."

    He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"

    The Italian man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her."

    A very poignant and touching moment of Italian brotherhood and silence passed between the two men.

    "Can I borrow the dog?"

    The man replied, "Get in line."

    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.

After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
