Thanks Ladymoose, you are very kind to say that indeed and I really thank you very much for the fav and for stopping by…all the best to you and Merry Christmas x
Excellent shot Janine, wonderful detail my friend xx
My mate stepped into the room where I was working the other day and asked me if I would go do some wood turning on the lathe. “Of course,” I replied, receiving anticipatory joy at the thought of my mate’s pleasure when I would be finished creating the item for which he had a need. “What do you need? Maybe a new dibber or possibly a rolling pin or a vase? I have Persimmon, Hickory, Mesquite, a little bit of Walnut and a tad of Oak. What would you like?” “Oh, I don’t care,” my mate replied. “I need about six bags of shavings for the flower beds.”
Hahahahahahahahahahaha…I laughed so hard my stomach burst hahahahahah :)
