SUNDAY January 17

Stick pickin' cancelled until tomorrow...too wet...found a couple of nice spots to cut...should be some good ones mostly poplar and sweet gum... 

 Cut down the dogwood tree...everything above 12' or so was d-zeesed...so got some good stuff for bears and sittin' doggies n' such...

 In a funk...not seeing a dang thing in the trees...no faces, no animals, no nothing...just waiting for the muse to come...if it was warmer I'd be off to the golf course...sometimes I'm just amazed at how you folks can just keep on whittlin' every day or almost every day...and ya'll probally wonder how in the heybedooble I can blitz carve or work without Roughouts...

Florida Woodcarvers Roundup is sneakin' up reeaaallll fast...Feburary 2nd thru the 5th...lots of great instructors...that's only 15 days from right now so ya'll better be sharpening up your tools...remember...sharp tools make sharp carvings...twang n' yee-haw too...

SnowSnowSnow...

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...

SNOW DAY

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...
