  • 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."

    I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

    John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

    Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

    I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

    This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

    I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

    Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

    How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
