I'm a semi retired patent agent, but its not about that; I've been married to a beautiful woman since she was 18 and I was 21 in 1968.
My dream in life since 1953 when my dad died was to own our property again on Deadman Creek (we say "crick") and in Oct. of 2000 we were able to buy 30 acres of the place back. Now we have a cabin on the old place and go there whenever we can. And I'm doing what I can to eventually build a porch on the front, hence "Jimbo's Front Porch".
One thing I'm doing to raise funds for the building project is turning and hand carving wood crochet hooks from branch wood I collect from the ranch. Proceeds from sales go into the building fund such as it is.
Ok.. nuf about me.. I spect more will come out as this grows.
NOW TELL ME, WHAT USE COULD YOU POSSIBLY HAVE FOR AN OVER SIZE BUTTON WITH A CROCHET HOOK STICKING OUT THE SIDE? COULD IT BE DESIGNED FOR COMFORT? NAH, I'VE HELD IT AND IT'S DEFINITELY NOT COMFORTABLE TO HOLD. IS IT A THING OF BEAUTY? COMEON, ITS A BUTTON WITH A CROCHET HOOK STICKING OUT THE SIDE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. ALTHOUGH THE REDHEART WOOD IS VERY PRETTY ALL BY ITSELF. BUT NO, IT'S NOT MADE AS AN OBJECT OF BEAUTY. OK SO YOU SAY IF IT'S NOT MADE FOR COMFORT OR BEAUTY, IT MUST BE ONE AMAZINGLY EFFECTIVE CROCHET HOOK; IS IT MADE FOR SPEED AND ACCURACY? NOPE, HECK I DON'T EVEN KNOW THE HOOK SIZE AND THE GLUE HOLDING THE HOOK IN ISN'T DRY ENOUGH TO TRY CROCHETING.
SO WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS STRANGELY ATTRACTIVE BUTTON WITH A HOOK STICKING OUT IT'S SIDE?
IT'S A NEW TAKE ON AN OLD TOOL. EVER HEAR OF A BUTTON HOOK?
OH, AND DO YOU REALIZE THAT TODAY IS
APRIL FOOLS DAY????!!!!
Have yourself a merry little April Fools Day everyone!!!
