  • How did you do Coal or Tools?

    I hope everyone had a great Christmas I did. It's always hard for people to shop for me what do you get a blind person a chainsaw.. No I didn't get a chainsaw or any other tools. I was informed that I had all the carving tools in the world now. I did get about 5 or 6 audio books so now I have more to listen to while carving. I did also receive a beautiful hand made quilt from my mom. It is funny she has been sitting there in the same house making it right in front of me. I think the best thing for me is when the little great neises and nephews open their presents. Can't see them but could sure hear them.

    I got a lot of general tools this year;
    an 18-volt rechargable tool set (Circular saw, reciprocating saw, drill, flashlight, and stud finder); Freud Tablesaw blades for my new saw, a nice Kreig miter gauge for my saw, a new shop vac...and a MP3 player!!!

      No coal or tools!

      Ron, I do know what you mean on those children opening their presents. Of course my 5 year old Grandson, open up his big box present and after all the present were opened, what did he play with. The Big Box. Go figure. Next year, no toys, just boxes.
      And the little 4 year old GrandDaughter had to have a fashion show with all the clothes she gotAnd How may Dora dolls can one child have.
      The 9 year old, well, Against my better judement got an Ipod and other things. She loves country. No, not theWillie or Waylan stuff.
      The wife, well she made out like a bandit, Got a Circut, has to do with Scrapbooking, A machine that cuts out whatever the cartridge has on it. Neat little machine.
      Oh, I got some neat stuff. At least it wasn't socks or underwear.
      BTW, I just figure out the little bride's digital camera and I recieved an Olympus 6 megapixal digital camera form the little bride. bless her little pea pick'n heart.A nice one with Image Stabilization.
      I sure need all the stabilization I can get.

                  My kids were all here for Christmas dinner, and that was enough, but they all chipped in and got my husband and I tickets to the Cirque Du Soleil, Corteo show in Atlanta in January.
                  I told them all I didn't want anything, because we're living in a 23 foot airstream for now and there isn't enough room for even a new pair of socks. They listened! I couldn't have been more excited.
                  They also all loved their presents from us and we've been eating good food for 3 days now.
                  Great year's end. Now, maybe I can find time to carve again.
                  Happy New Year all.

                    Well it sounds like everyone had a great holiday. I didn't think any of us deserved coal except maybe Ash for his halloween prank. Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year katy and I are doing the smart thing staying home with a nice bottle of wine and some movies.

                      Ash's halloween joke? Oh my gosh, I forgot about that. Oh No, dimentia is setting in. Help, Help, Help me Ronda. Hmmmm, a song by the Beach Boys!

                      Yes Ron, Had a real nice one for sure and got more than I should have. Ya see, The little bride wrote a letter to Santa Claus telling him how BAD I was this year.

                      BAD Ta da Bone!

                      Sorry Ron , just monkeying around
