Tool Gloat

Hello friends and neighbors.
I am sorry I haven’t been around much but if you know me summer is very busy for me.
The one great big thing I have done is meet up with 11 lumberjocks for a crawfish boil.

Ten Lumberjocks
I was the eleventh jock taking the picture. We gathered for a tribute to Roger Clark aka Rex who had just recently past on to the big wood shop in the sky.
Well if you get a whole bunch of wood workers gathered together there will be tools and wood traded, given and bartered for.
I made out like a bandit. But had went to the event on my bike.
Luckily William hauled it to his house and I went and picked it up the next day.

I want to thank all my jock buddies, each and every one of them for there friendship.
The time I had was great.

We can not for get Rex as well.
Here is a little vid on the event.

Before we get to the main event I want to introduce you to my new grand daughter Hadleigh Quinn Armstrong.

Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
