« Part 12: Brisbane Timber and Working with Wood Show. Part 13 of Going to local shows. series Part 14: Nice Rack.... »

When I go to a wood show to demonstrate the Torque Workcentre, I usually wear heavy duty workwear and boots..

This is partly a safety issue and also, as a professional, I like to look like I actually know what I am doing..

As a part of this new found professionalism, I now have “Lazy Larry Woodworks” embroidered on the shirt just above the left pocket..

Mainly ….this is so I can be returned to my stand if I get lost..

I have meant to do this ever since I bought the gear… well now when you see me at a show you will know just who Lazy Larry is…and where he should be..

And if I am not, please return me to the Torque Workcentre stand…

This is what happened when I did not have my company name embroidered on my shirt…

I got lost and then found…took a while to get back to my stand..

I don’t know where you should be, but from what I can see in your last picture; you found a very nice place to be “lost”. Also, you better hope your isn’t the one who finds you! :)

Larry: If you get lost by me, I’m not paying postage to ship you home.

But, I hope your friends are with you.

There’s something distorting the text on their shirts, making it much harder to read. Give me a few minutes to decipher this…

I’m not sure, but it seems to me that the embroidery on the shirt may not be a good idea.
