  1. I've been pondering the idea of selling my tools. It"s getting harder to get into the shop, with the aches and pains in these aging bones. My head tells me to sell, but my heart says no. I've kept active all my life, but, at 86+, it seems that no matter what, the body keeps loosing strength. As a youth ,I could press 150 lbs 10 times easily. Now I can't lift 100 lbs off the ground. Actually, a struggle to pick a bag of cement. All the yard work this spring from the fallen tree branches, from the winter storms, sort of found muscles to that I didn't know I had.
  2. So if you were unsure if the 90s were making a come back this should help you in knowing it’s back. https://brobible.com/culture/article/studded-goth-crocs-all-the-rage/ I present to you the gothcrok get those bedazzles and safety pins out. The wife bought tickets to the new kids on the block reunion tour so may as well go full tilt with the 90s.
  3. So I'm watching the PBS thing on brain plasticity and how to stretch your mental glidepath, and I think "how can I do this through woodworking?" And it strikes me: what will motivate every/any true WWer? A new tool of course. One of my instructors advised that you should think of projects as excuses to buy a new tool. Yeah, baby; sing me that song! So, I'm going to extend that to making jigs, too. Tools and jigs. And maybe I even cut some wood, but the object isn't building things!! The purpose is brain development through new challenges. And I betcha the cost of new tools is a lot less than a stay in a hospital!! (esp. the mental ward kind of place; been there, didn't like it) And look at the REALLY bright side: the right kind of tool with a little carelessness, and you don't have to worry about old age. Just gets better and better.
