    Conversation with grandson

    Elliott was here on Wednesday. I was downstairs working and heard little feet coming down the steps as fast as they could move. “Slow down cowboy before you fall.” Dr.Mimi Dr. Mimi I’m bleeding. Do I need stitches? (He just watched take his zipper stitches off) Am I bleeding to death? By this...

    Got mine today and somewhat disappointed. Carole’s bowl is amazing. Don’t know how she comes up with these ideas. The Christmas items were also good but would have liked more. If I do the nativity scene, I will reduce it to about 50%. I have noticed each issue seems to be getting more words. If...

    Bruce is doing amazing. First time tonight he is sleeping without it. He wears it when going anyplace, mostly to keep people from bumping into him. He is doing more movement with his arm, just not carrying anything or lifting. Starts PT 10/12, 3-6 months. Today is brother had double back surgery. They...

  • We have a Delta 121/2” which we’ve had forever and ever. Bruce uses it mostly, but he did change the blades to 3 cutters. It does a much better job. He also has a jig, of course he does, that he sharpens the cutters with. He also made a longer bed for it. Extremely loud. We have a jointer that seldom...

    Bruce took the “zipper”ff today. Yep, the stitches were zipper type. When we were packing up at the market Sunday, the coffee vendor asked if we wanted a taste of his chocolate whiskey coffee. We said no thanks. After driving to Annapolis in the truck today to get Elliott, Bruce said he was going...

    I usually don’t use plywood, but I think it works beautifully with these patterns. On my to do list in January.

    I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

    And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...

    I finally got back in the groove when they let me back in the farmers market. I’ll be there until Sunday before Christmas and starting. 11/7 on Saturday as well.

    Great minds think alike! I have been working on the bottom one! What size is that? Since I’m not doing cardholders this year, we had lots of pieces taped up and I cut some last night out of 1/8” cherry. They came out nice but very fragile. They will be my family ornament this year. I also cut the...

    I’m with Scott. I love reading about history. Very interesting. And your cutting was beautiful.

    They are so pretty. Wasn’t there a pattern or something about making shells in one of the magazines?

    Despite our trip to and from the doctor, he did amazing. Has to wean from wearing the sling by the time he starts PT in 3 weeks. He can also stop his pills except Tylenol as needed. He has 2 pages of pt orders of what the dr wants them to do. To paraphrase the first few lines, the dr says do exactly...

    Opening bottle of wine when we get home from Doctor. He has no sense of direction. Directions from Bruce - right at road before hospital. I take a right - this is wrong. Ok, now where? What’s address. 10725. 10725 what? I don’t know. How did you get here before surgery? Took right at light, took...

    replied to First sale of the season
    I was finally allowed back into our farmers market last Sunday. This market has 70 spots, mostly farmers with about 10-15 regular crafters, except the holiday mart starting in November. The USDA mandates the rules and masks are required. There has been no problem and the place was quite crowded. My...
