W as headed, but boy I enjoyed t he ride, and proud of what I accomplished, and many others along the way

It has been great running into you and many others. On this absolutely wonderful site

Hi Richard,

Nothing humbling at all compared to your own efforts Richard! They are just as impressive if not more so in many ways...We're just getting "long in the tooth" so have more stories to tell than some...!!!

I couldn't agree more about your education too...FAR!!! superior in most ways for sure compared to what our learning institution are producing today. As with most things "modern" they may be faster (sometime?) and the certainly can make "some" wealthy but there is seldom anything "superior" about them at all...

Blessings,
j

Hello everyone tonite

Hi jay, we will probably never meet, but through this medium , and the great country we live in lets us pursue without fear avenues of working adventure, that taken at the tide leads us to levels that would be hard to attain in many other countries.

You know many moons ago I experienced a true life happening that made me realize what we are fortunate to have here,

I was out doing a demonstration to a large group of foreign visitors, and I was telling them how we were trying to preserve our heritage, and this one tall lad came over to me and he went on to say tha the group was from Russia

It was after our relations were starting normalize somewhat, he went on to say t hat their country had lost much of their skills due to a relaxation of restoration of their heritage structures, and this new generation was trying to catch up by visiting and observing other countries efforts

It made me proud to think that anything I had to say might have a positive effect on someone in their group

One thing I noticed was the wide variation of nationalities in the group, it was astonishing to say t he least

Well that,s it for tonite

Hello,everyone tonite

Well getting close to finishing out this year, and what a year it has been for sure, hope everyone is hunkering down and staying well, I for one is trying to do just that, but it is hard, have to get out once in a while to do some trading

You will notice I said ""trading"", just a familiar saying from my younger years, mother and dad would always say this never "out to buy groceries". They actually traded home grown things for necessities.

Trying to get ready for the cold weather, right ahead.

The shop will be getting a lot of use, catching up on tool housekeeping, getting them out of storage and for a while the atmosphere in the shop will be 1860, for those dropping by

For sure we will be putting up next years wood supply, which means disturbing the deer and other animals such as coyotes, foxes wild turkeys

I counted 12 deer the other day by the corn crib, having a nervous meal,and in. The background was a whole flock, of wild turkeys waiting for their turn

This. Will be the norm until spring, when Mother Nature will begin being generous

I remember when I was living several months in Texas I saw a lot of wild turkeys there, they were really noisy sometimes. Now I am in a Pattaya estate and I have lots of issues with bugs and insects, hate them

Hello everyone tonite

Thanks Oligo for joining the conversation and your experiences, just wondering if you have much interest in traditional timber framing, I see you came by this site which attracts those interested in historic woodworking

Thanks again for stopping by
