    The idea of a different thread for each persons intro is a great one.
    Much easier to reference than going through the entire list.

    My name is Carl Hird-Rutter, I am 47 years young.
    I live in Chilliwack BC Canada.

    Back in 1996 just after we moved into the townhouse one of our new neighbors came to visit.
    Roy Brown is a gentleman in his 70s he asked me if I had any hobbies. I told him I use the computer and listen to the shortwave radio. He said those are not hobbies.
    He smiled and left. 20 minutes later he came over with a scroll saw some wood and some patterns. "Here is a hobby" he said.
    He showed me the basics, left the saw and the wood and the rest is history.

    I seemed to want to jump right into the complicated fretwork right from the beginning. My first project was a rose coaster, then a tiger coaster.
    After the first month I jumped into a cut out of an ark on a piece of scrap wood I got from another neighbor. The wood was 16 x 22 and was painted white, the sawdust was a darker colour. I was delighted to find out it was cherry. I redid the ark a few times. Once on a cupboard door and once on a piece of mahogany 5"x7"

    We have not. A visit to the doctor and he stated that once sick with covid, the antibodies are active in the body.

    My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
