  • Hi I'm Craig

    I live in the land of the Hodag or Rhinelander, Wi. I'm a new 62 yrs. old. I served in the Navy as a lab tech assist and Field marine with the 3rd marine.
    I'm a retired 30 yr veteran of law enforcement. I'm a beekeeper, fishing Kayaker and grouse hunter. I have a fantastic bird dog that I escort through the woods and admire her enthusiasm. My handicapped son David is my fishing competitor. David got his own kayak this year. I do not like being able to walk on water and I let snowmen go free. I have been making in line spinners, scrollsaw wearables and listen to bluegrass and dreaming of sunshine and open water. Oh I forgot to mention that I collect cookbooks. I very seldom fix the same thing twice for dinner. I'm a Swede that loves Asian food. I bike or walk or take the car if the first two choices are not available. Im also a contributor to Custodial Workers resource for safety and sharing performance information to tie workers together.

          I didn't mention that my young pup rides in the back compartment of my kayak when Im fishing. She keeps moving from one side to the other to watch a loon or watch someone on shore so I have to adjust my balance. I even catch her biting at my fishing line when it hits her.
          But the greatest thank you I get from her is when she stands on the hull to lay her head on my shoulder or to give me a kiss.

            Hi Craig, welcome.

            I like bluegrass also, but if I can't take it out of a microwave I starve.

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
