Best to appreciate what you've got, and not want things you're not likely to get.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Went down the hill today for doctor stuff and decided to visit the Rockler store . Walked around for awhile and realized there wasn't a thing there I wanted. I have all the tools and accessories I ever hoped to have. So I didn't buy anything. First time that's ever happened.

Tom,

You said you haven't been been feeling well lately. Might be worse than you think!!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I fully understand that feeling. I do this every time we walk through the tool section of Home Depot.
I may not have the newest or the brightest of the tools but I have them all.
Once in a while I need a special bit or something for a project I am working on and when this happens I run in and buy one.
Deem yourself fortunate.
Sandra used to try to steer me away from the tool sections but now she patiently walks along with me and once in a while she will say " don't you need one of these."?
When that happens, you know, you have arrived.

Yeh, I know the feeling. I walk through KMS Tools or Lee Valley, can't see anything that arouses me, and I get depressed...

I think at this point I almost have one of everything woodworking. I find it's not that I want more, it's that I want to trade up to bigger and better.

DRT, I hope it isn't contagious! When you go to HF, make sure you have a pocket full of coupons.
