You Might Be a Woodcarver....
started innocently enough when Ol Don wrote:
Foxworthy has become a very popular comedian because of his "You
might be a Redneck" routine, so I thought it might be
fun to start a thread of "If ... you might be a Woodcarver".
yard is the only one in the neighborhood with stumps instead
of shade trees, you might be a woodcarver."
are carving at 10 PM and your wife whispers sweet nothings in
your ear about it being time to go to bed, and at 3 AM you tell
her for the 23 rd time, I'll be there in a minute , you might
be a woodcarver."
can t see the water in your hot tub because of the floating wood
chips, you might be a woodcarver."
can see your breath but refuse to put another log in the fireplace
because you see something in the wood, you might be a wood carver."
few I thought of for starters- now it's your turn."
(identified at the
bottom of the last page) assembled and the following collection was
posted. As Tom Norman mentioned, "When you can relate to
ten or more you might be a woodcarver indicators, have no doubts-
you are a woodcarver!!
And in conclusion,
this poem from Sparrow:
you can t see the kitchen table
For knives and tools and things:
If you no longer watch TV or read the paper
Or even care what news they bring
your clothes are all in the dirty basket
And not a clean cup can you find.
Dust bunnies as big as real rabbits
In your house, like they are in mine.
all the wood on your furniture
Has funny marks cut here and there;
And that funny object on the mantle..
Is it a flower or a bear?
just might be a beginner at carving
And addicted from the start.
I may never Hit the Big Time
But I am a carver in my heart .
