Default Here's James!

My wife and I had the wonderful experience of sharing a few hours with James and his lovely wife Maree this afternoon! Many of you will know James from this forum as jw2170. James and Maree are from Australia and are here touring the states and visiting some sites they have always wanted to see. For my part I am disapointed that I did not have more time spend with them. I thoroughly enjoyed my time and wish it had been longer. I am including a few photos, one of James and Maree, and another of James and I.

You make a lovely couple Jack. Seriously, It looks like he enjoyed your hospitality. I would like to meet him personally too.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Lovely photographs Jack. James and Marie sure are enjoying themselves, I spoke to James yesterday from Glenmore Nancy's home and had difficulty hearing because of the happy loud chatter in the room.

Hello Harry, so good to hear from you, and thank you! I was pressed for time with James, which I REALLY regret. A once in a lifetime oppurtunity to meet with him and I had to go back to work. I so enjoyed my time, it was very comfortable and not at all awkward, I could've spent the entire day with them and talked about just about anything. James and Maree were both very engaging. I certainly hope that should they ever choose to visit the states again that they would stop by. I had originally requested the day off, then was told that a "small" job had been scheduled for the morning, could I please do that, I reluctantly agreed, but should have flatly declined. My loss. The small job took 6 hours and I had to go back as soon as James left to complete it.

Thanks for lunch and the the photos, Jack.

We also enjoyed your hospitality and wished we had more "shed/shop" time.......

HI James,
A bit presumptuous on my part, but you looked soooo healthy in your vacation photos, that I just had to make a few possible avatar images available that you may want to use.
If you can't decide, maybe your friends can help.

James I too wish we had more shop time. I would have liked to work some small project with you, and even invited you to try any of the tools that struck your fancy. Ah if only the day had gone differently. Next trip? I will take the week off!
