Great to read more about how you got to where you are Leo. It's been fun reading your posts and I enjoy seeing your work when you post. Even though you sometimes feel disconnected by geography, you are definitely connected here.

Congrats and I am so glad you take the time to contribute.

Best wishes to you and yours. Keep those tools sharp and the lathe spinning.

Thanx y'al,

The Bird was just a snack for one of the Cats, you can't let a beauty like that get eaten before a picture has been taken, can you ? Cheesy

I find it hard to write about me, but I hope it read ok.

Sorry about some of my jokes/comments in the past, but I find SOME of them funny, so I am happy, in my own little.World.

I must also thank, again, all of you that have and still do, help me with methods, ideas etc. on Woodturning, it's great to know you are out there to assist. smiley=beer.gif

I think Leo is not telling the truth about the Bird.  I think he is fibbing.  smiley=beer.gif smiley=beer.gif

Your not supposed to do that to friends.  smiley=shake head.gif

I would be willing to bet that it is the other way around and the cat is a snack for the owl.

I got my paperwork done to start getting a falcon permit but could never find a sponsor to apprentice to.

With the hours involved how can you find any time to work in the shop? The guy I was going to apprentice to was spending 8 to 10 hours a day with his bird, before he died.  I miss him.

Cliff,

Sorry for the delay in responding.

The Owl was part of a show that was on at a Hotel near me, this was the small one.
