I have been slacking on blogging, this month seems to be not my month, everything happens in threes, gone pass three. I am not complaining, oh, maybe I am. Things aren't to bad, just little aggravating things. Did get away for a couple of days, which was nice, nice to return too.
Pictured above is from the Bascom museum in Highland, NC, they also had on display, old motorcycles. The second photo - leaves on the Hiwassee River.
Next month we have a show, Jer has turned some really nice pieces.

Jer's two favorite things to do, beside spending time with family and friends, happens to be cars and woodturning. He combined his two favorites-This is a photo of two of the trophies he made for the car club, I think it was for Peoples Choice Award, not sure. I was organizing, I know, again, and found this photo. I know there was more that he made, but this is what I found.

Today, it's tropical depression "Bonnie". We were told there was a 20 percent chance of developing then, a 40, then 70. Right now we have a very small breeze, a little rain, now and then. Good sleeping weather.

Back in the 70's his grandfather, would go shrimping with us, (when he'd visit from up north) we would hoist a ladder off the cat walk down under the Rickenbacker bridge in Miami. Jerry's granddad would stay up on the cat walk and fish, and make new friends. One night, one of his buddies had some whiskey, I guess granddad had a little too much and was hanging by a harness over the cat walk, we rescued him. Have no idea where he got that harness. When we would leave everyone on the catwalk would tell him, goodbye. We would come back to Jerry's parent house and clean the shrimp, it was a good time.

We look for fossils on the beach and rivers, mainly sharks teeth and shells. I have so many that I put them everywhere and any place.

May 20, 2010 - Sorry I haven't posted lately, hard to type. I went to the hand doctor yesterday about my little finger, (I had a fall last month and my little finger made a right turn, ) I have to keep my two fingers bandaged for a month, go back in a month. While I was at the doctors I showed him the palms of my hand, he said that I had Dupuytren's Disease. Check out - http://DealingWithDD.com There are injection that can help. It tends to run in families. It is more common in individuals whose ancestors are from northern Europe. Now I know what is wrong with my brothers hands.

We set up Friday, Feb. 12th. Friday night it rained and winds, I thought I was in a hurricane, they were so bad. I really thought our tent and stuff would end up in Canada.
Saturday- the tents were all there, like nothing happened. Judges came by, didn't say much and left. Nice day but chilly. Sunday-The awards committee with the bugles and a big blue flag that read "WINNER", what a pleasant surprise, 1st in Wood!!!!!!!! Icing on the cake. No more to say but-------- WOW and a double WOW!
All orders for Artigra show were sent out today.
Jerry has to get busy for the Melbourne, Florida show in April.

Sorry, sometimes I am a little backwards. This should have been #1. (Oct. 25th post) The log before it's turned, acually I am way backwords this is the other log that Jerry picked up, oh well you get the picture.
You really want to get backwards, Jer's first love happens to be cars. This VW truck was taken at a car event we went to last weekend. Liked his smile. The other photo is a Porsche engine part before the car.

Is this #10? Oh well, not very good with order. Jer took this turning down so the knots were showing. He went out to his studio last night, didn't do anything, I don't think. Said the piece was still to wet, whatever that means.

#7 Whole new shape, take it down so the knots are fillet like a fish.
#8 Drill a hole in the top, and then go in with a very, very sharp tool (that could fly across the room or worse yet, suck your whole body inside) maybe this should be #7 what do I know.
#9 Jer is not finished with this piece so I will continue, maybe Jer will tell you his thoughts and techniques as he sees it.
I will say, "It's lookin Gooooood" that's something I do know.
