Default My Good Deed for the Month

There was a memorial fund raiser last Saturday nite for our local National Guard Company that was deployed a while back to Iraq. 22 of them were killed. It was a a beer tasting/silent auction shindig so I donated 6 of the Eagle over flag plaques. Two of the finished husband/wife hero ones and 4 unfinished pieces.

So the wife and I spent the evening pouring beer and wondering if we were going to buy back our own stuff (they were going to sell one way or another). They all went and I finished up the 4 unfinished ones to the winning bidders' wishes. There were vets there from all branches. I didn't know there were that many different brands of beer around.







And my favorite -- lady wanted one for her 93 year old dad.

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

You are a Prince, John! No better gesture than to honor vets - especially the wounded/fallen. Thank you.

Good work John.

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.
