    it's been a long while since being on here.
    This thread caught my eye.
    I cracked my lower spine in a couple places last September. I was walking on a pretty good sized log, and munched a couple of vertebrae's on the knots on the wrong way down. It's been a really slow painful recovery.
    Up until that point I was feeling pretty good for a 62 year old. I took up easy going kayaking at 60 after quitting smoking at 59.
    I am thankful I can still walk. Haven't tried kayaking since the big fall.
    I used to be able to lift 35, 40 pounds last August, now I can lift 20.
    I can't say it's all good, but am thankful that I can still do life in spurts.
    There's beauty in the weeds outside.

      I understand completely. I couldn't access your site from the link here because of the link prefaced as woodcarving illustrated. When I edited the WCI out of the link then it took me right to the site. You might want to check it. Regardless, very nice carvings you do. Spirits are one of my favorite subjects.

        I hear you Sappy, Even when we have the kids do something for us, they just want to get it done, not good, but done. Not much pride in what they do for us, kind of disappointing . Better get down off my soap box

            Sad but true Sappy and Joe. When every one got a gold star for showing up the need for the need for pried in the quality of the work goes out the window. I see it in my grandkids. It breaks my heart. Not log ago I payed some one to do some painting on the house. When I pointed out some issues with his work I was told it was commercially acceptable. The conversation went down hill from there. And it was corrected. But it is the attitude of to many.

              Quality of work today is not what was done by our generation. It is total frustration for me but I finally had a "handi-man" who does decent work but not up to my standards, and I've learned to accept it because everyone else is even worse. I just accept the new normal and move on. Different younger generation now and I could continue but it would just be piling on. However, I agree with the comments here, and I just adapt to the new world...not mine though.
