  • Happy Parents' Day Puzzle

    So I woke up early this morning to a surprise.....both the kids decided to declare today "Parents' Day" and spent the week secretively creating hand made gifts. I heard my son shuffling around the house a bit after 6 AM, so I figured he was up to something. When I went to check, he ordered me back to bed, else I'd ruin the surprise. A few hours later, the table was all set for breakfast, there were streamers and balloons up (the balloons were limp, since the kids tried to "tie" them shut with tape, since both were unable to knot them, LOL), "Happy Parents Day" signs, and other goodies. It was a great surprise, and really made my day. My son even washed my car a few minutes ago!!

    Anyway, here is one of my gifts. The kids painted cardboard puzzle pieces, and put something they like about me on each of them. Talk about a tear jerker! I haven't had much time to post on the forum the past few months, so I thought I'd share this with everyone.

            That's the part of parenting that our parents don't tell us about - when it's fun - it is really really fun. Sometimes life just don't get any better than that!

            Happy Parent's Day!

              Thanks, guys......the kids are great, and I'm really proud of them. "Parents' Day" was fantastic.

              Now......I'm wondering if there is a hidden agenda......I've been hearing mutterings of how there should be a "Kids Day."

                  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.

                  What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. 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...
