Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 09

Greetings I really hate that I missed the annual auction. That’s one of my favorite program/events. I’ve been down in the back for several weeks now’ but I’m just about back to normal. I celebrated by going out to the shop and sticking my finger into a spinning table saw blade. Thanks to the SawStop,

Greetings I started early on this month’s Splinters and I’m still behind. I’ve been having trouble with my back the last couple weeks and it’s finally gone out.

Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 06

Greetings Well, it doesn’t seem to matter if the 3rd Tuesday falls early or late, I always seem to get caught by surprise. I’d like to give a shout out to Gary Runyan. The programming this year has been excellent! I’m looking forward to the program on duck calls. I’m having a hard time keeping

Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 05

Greetings Friday the 13th is my birthday. I’ll be seventy years old. I can tell you getting old is not for sissies. But, as far as I know, there’s no good alternative to getting old. So, I’m praying for good legs, that my back will hold up, my mind will stay clear, and I’ll have

Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 04

Greetings I had brunch today (April 11) with Paul Jalbert, Vince Zacardi, and Jack Kincella. We had a little going away gathering for Jack. Several others were supposed to attend but were providentially hindered. This has already been said by several in several different ways, but I’ll add mine. Jack has been a blessing to

Greetings I apologize for the newsletter being late this month. It’s hard to believe the third Tuesday is here so soon. Maybe it has something to do with the time change. I don’t ever recall springing forward a whole week though. It’s the 2nd Monday as I start composing this, but tomorrow is 3rd Tuesday.

Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 01

Greetings I have high hopes that 2022 is going to be an improvement over 2021. Not that last year wasn’t an improvement over 2020. There does seem to be some change for the better. I saw a quote the other day to the effect “when I said ‘things couldn’t get much worse’, I didn’t mean

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 12

Greetings I have ambivalent feelings about December. The close of one year and the beginning of another. We’re looking back and remembering both good and bad of the past year, all the while knowing we can’t tarry there long. There’s a new year just around the corner that holds both unknown trials and joys. Whether
