Want to cut up my Dogwood log and carve up some Bears...but...snow...and...coldcoldcold...this
old man ain't gonna work in the goldanged snow n' cold...here in the south we just wait till it melts and it should all be
gone by Monday...but that just means sittin' round n' watchin' it melt instead of workin'...I guess I could go work in the
sunroom but then there ain't no sun in the sunroom...but...I guess I could turn on the space heater in the sunroom to warm
up the sunroom...but...sittin' round procrastinating is lookin' a whole lot better right here n' now...
Well now...the Florida Woodcarvers Roundup is now eight days away and I still got stuff to do for that...we will
be pulling out early Monday morning with hot coffee in our hands...590 miles...bout 10 hours on the road including stops...4
nights, 5 days then back home again...the things I do to buy groceries...mmm...

It's snowing...only because the weather people said "there may be a slight chance of snow but highly
unlikely"...so here it comes...kinda like white rain...don't think it will be enough to make everything close...that's
what we do here in the Deep South...close up and wait till it melts...
Cut a couple dozen sticks
yesterday...just in time it appears...now I gotta pick another day to trim up the sticks and bundle them up for the Florida
trip...so all is quiet in preparations for the trip...the checklist is growing smaller and the time is growing shorter...12
days...yep...12 days to roundup time...kinda makes you feel like a freakin' cow...roundup...mmm...whoever invented these gatherings
musta been a rancher...why not Calling All Carvers or The Rendezvous or The Gathering or A Gaggle Of Whittlers or The Carving
Bunch or something...I think the first one was held in Texas so that's why it's a roundup...now that I said that someone will
dispute it and someone else will correct it...
And for all you folks who don't like sharpening
tools there's a fella down at the Florida Woodcarvers Roundup who will be setup to sharpen your tools...I'd tell you his name
but he ain't paid yet...yee-haw...
