    Default Paul Girouard!!!

    Returns from a two year banning!

    Nice to have you back. Perhaps you can offset some of that left coast whackery coming from David G.

    I certainly hope so. That madman is outta control!!

    And I certainly hope that The Squid has spent his time away reading up on history, politics, economics, etc. and honing his understanding of logic and his skills in honest rhetoric. That'd be WAY cool.

    But maybe all he did was make interesting sawdust where he excels... and he's willing to share fotos...

    Indeed. But I got the clear impression he didn't want to talk about that. Maybe in general... or maybe he was just pizzed at ME that day (it's been known to happen).

    My wife’s doing OK , about the same. With some different issues that seem we all get as we age. One thing easily becomes two.

    As far as me I’ll stay out of the political threads , as I know going in ANY opinion I have will be deemed invalid / wrong / pig headed , or well as JOP said Reds are stupid.

    How you all get by The Scot with the stuff you type is beyond me. Your welcome to Sobell have been a eye opener. The House of Saud has nothing on how WBF is moderated.

    I wonder how bobbys is? Or many of the others you tolerant liberals have had banned with your button pushing?

    I’ll post some work photo’s as time allows it’s been a productive two years.


    One other thing about being banned with the new picture posting policy you can’t view photo’s unless like Jim Ledger, the poster still uses photo bucket or a serve to store their photo, you can’t see photos when you can’t log in.


    We final entered our builder association home show , first time in. Best in show , plus 8 other ribbons , so 9 out of 13 when to our house.

    That's an impressive haul Paul, but your craftsmanship is never in doubt, and it is good to see you back.

    Wow, two years. I bet you’ve mellowed into an easy going guy. Doubters gotta doubt. Right now I’m getting a kick seeing my son-in-law turn a pile of cypress 6”x 6” into a carport with mortise and tenon joints.

    Not from us chickens but I do remember a guy who used to give you a hard time. He doesn't post here anymore. I think the consensus was you were better than not half bad.


    Welcome back. Nice colors!

    I was maybe thinking of someone else but I only remember one incident of somebody giving you gaff. Undeserved I might add. Something to do with table saw technique maybe? Modest you may be but that's not unusual with the best craftsmen. It is good to have you back.

    Paul!!! Good to see you back.
    In the US this perverted idea of ďblood and soilĒ over ďconstitutional principlesĒ is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Funny the manners and ​noblesse oblige that come from the comfort of wealth. Well... at least for some.
