    My wife asked me if next year we can have Christmas at our place with her whole family here and my family. I told her yes but SHE had to buy anything she gave her sister!

    She just smiled and gave me a hug.

      Should we arrange for an emergency surface grinder pickup from Wisconsin for the next Christmas?

        Not necessary. Our place is big enough that I can get away from them all. One sure fired way to be left alone is to ask them to help me actually do some work around the farm. They all avoid me after that. My wife knows exactly what I am up to and gives me a wink.

            Wow. She's a beauty. Hey...wait a minute...could this qualify as a gloat? To launch a steady stream of "You Suck"s in your direction?

                Not long after that movie came out I discovered my neighbor used to manufacture kicker style potter's wheels and he had one left that had not sold and which was probably 20 years old. This has an 80lb kick wheel and a very well-made turning station around it. I paid $100 for it and would not trade it for the world. There are now electric turning benches and probably CNC turning benches - I love mine. They're easy to make and somewhere around here I have the drawings to reproduce them. Stanley, God rest his sole, would smile down from on high to know his kickers have a new life.
