« Part 34: Here We Go Again!! Part 35 of Another day, another nickle series Part 36: Merry Christmas »

Well, it’s that time of year again. I do always try to get on here and wish my old friends the very best for the holiday season. I even finished a project for a Christmas present but let it get away with the customer before I took pictures. It’s funny how you can get out of the habit. When I first signed on on LJ, I would no more than get a project finished until I had it photographed and posted. That was back when there were about 1200 of us and about 40 really active. I just checked projects since yesterday. There were only 12 pages. You guys are slipping.
The project I finished is a sort of shadow box wall cabinet about 1.75 inches deep by 24 wide and 20 high. It has a frame on it that is bigger. The box is to display trophy belt buckles, (15). It’s going to a friend who is a darned good saddle bronc rider. His mother commissioned it. The frame is covered with carved leather and the back panel is basket stamped leather. I constructed it from Poplar and a MDF backer board. I did almost every thing with my hand tools. It must have worked; I have the check.
Well, this takes care of all my Christmas well-wishing. All I have left to do is sing a song Sunday night at the community Christmas program. LET THE FUN BEGIN!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

Tom: Great that you are active in a couple of your favorite activities.

Merry Christmas to you also, and the very Blessed of New Years.

Phillip, if you go to my Facebook page, Tom Angle Cowboy Entertainer, you will find a link to a bunch of videos on YouTube from The Cowboy Poets of Idaho. There are videos of something like 12 or 13 songs. The sound quality is pretty poor . They were videoed at a show in Payette, Idaho. There are also 4 tracks from my album,”Tough Times” on YouTube.
