    Re: How did you do Coal or Tools?

    Hey Ron,
    I got a hand made quilt from my mother also. I didn't get any carving tools for Christmas because I chose to get other things this year. Well I did get a new Mouse sander, but I use it for more than just carving.

    Happy New Year everyone,
    groozier
    To God be the Glory, Amen.

      No tools, but a lot of cloths....my wife and kids must be trying to tell me something.....and a new watch (to tell me when to stop carving and go to bed). Talking

      Happy New Year to all, behave yourselves and no dancing on the tables, or you might have to carve yourself a cane for a bit.

        No coal! No socks, No underware! but no tools either. But then again I told everyone that I had everything that I ever wanted. Got $ for a flat bed scanner. Had more fun giving than ever before. Had carved all female members of the family Santa pins. All a big hit. Made several "new" members to the family Noahs Arks with 24 sets of animals. I'd call that a great time. Tom H

            My wife got me the Makita electric chainsaw I wanted so I can carve in the shop. That saw is great!

                With great anticipation, I bounded up out of bed at 4 ayem, brought the turkey in from the back porch where it stayed all nicely chilled, rammed that sucker into the oven and got her cooking.

                Continuing on with my boy-scout like activities, I made a big pot of coffee, tip-toed into the living room to switch on the tree lights, almost tripping on and getting lost under the mound of goodies.

                Impatiently, I waited, with baited breath for my grandson to holler for the first time of the day. I made sure all cameras were loaded, had fresh batteries, fresh tape, fresh film. I fed my herd of cats. I plugged the aquarium lights in and fed the pirahnas.

                I drank the first pot of coffee, what the heck is with everybody? All a bunch of sleepyheads!
                Another pot of coffee was now gurgling and chuckling away. I peeked into my grandson's bedroom. My daughter was awake. She just rolled her eyes at me and plopped her head back down. Grandson still snoring.

                Went outside, turned on the outside lights. 7:am, and still nobody up. Sheesh!


                After a longer than anticipated wait, people finally start dragging themselves out of bed. Joyfully did my heart leap as presents were handed out, my grandson making a fine Santa's helper with many a 'hohoho murry cusmus' (he's only 2)


                So what did I get?



                Socks.

                  I got coal and I was good for 2 weeks. No carving tools this year, but I do have some that I been wanting. I did get a couple of new golf clubs. But for some reason it decided to snow 12" here a record for this city, so no golf for a couple of weeks.

                    Mel, I tried that Golf Hunting once. Never did find one. But if did get some of their eggs for sure. Didn't like them much nother. I like a 4 minute boild egg but these here golf eggs were really hard after about 4 minutes of boiling. Then I had to use a hammer to break themthere golf eggs and man di they stank once opened up. And the color of them Golf Yoks, Geexz. The they be rubbery tasting and I kepted on chewing and chewing and chewing, Had to spit the dang thing out. Nah, I don't like them Golf eggs much no how!

                    Happy New Year ta y'll

                            I got a Gonzalez skew, and a book I've been trying to get for a couple of years--Ornamental Woodcarving in the Norwegian Tradition.

                            Santa was very good to me!
