Well it’s been three happy years since i was joined at the hip with LumberJocks.

I just never knew anything like it.

But, then what you see now it not what was it was in the beginning. I joined – who knows why. We all signup to some web sites at time and then we never remember where it was that we asked the question. But here Martin would send us an e-mail when anyone posted a reply to our question. Talk about something being unique. Keeping us informed, instead of having to go find the site that we posted the question to see if anyone replied.

Here they did reply, and the replies meant something. It was not a derogitery reply like, “How could you ask such a stupid question?” It was a reply with love to try and help you out with your problem.

How unique.

I asked Martin when I signed up and he said that it was on 5/8/2006. So I guess It’s almost the right time. I’m on the road right now and not at my home computer. But, I met with Greg3G at his house today and then we went out for lunch and had a great time. I hope to meet up with Charles Neal tomorrrow at his shop in New Market Virginia. I’ll then head home after a mini Lumberjock tour.

Everyone have some Anniversary Cake on me. Send me a picture of what you ate.

I’d light up the candles… but it being safety week, I’m not sure that would be appropriate :o)

Karson…you are so right about everything…people here care…and I do think you have really helped to set that tone with your energy, sharing and non-stop contributing…there is rarely a blog, forum, project that I go that you have not “been there” and always with a helpful reply, comment or concern…

you are a great person…while you acknowedged Martin and fellow jocks for being responsive…it is you we, I must thank as well…

Thank you…and may the journey continue my friend!

—Yes, thanks for your contributions to LJ’s and to the Mason-Dixon club… and thanks for inviting me to it. It is becoming contagious, and that isn’t all that bad… My only regret? Woodworking can become as expensive as owning a boat… and I have that hobby too… ouch.

Thanks for the comments Guys. And I’m still waiting for the fathers-day-cards from all of you who think there getting some of my wood stash.

Love ya all.

But I did drop a couple of wood gloat boards off at Greg’s home today.
