Poor John's introduction/background


I worked in the city's water operations for thirty-three years, retiring several years ago. I'm a navy vet from the Vietnam era and the typical jack of all trades, who would enjoy woodworking more if the wife understood the difference between woodworking and construction.

Over the years I have acquired a well stocked shop that allows me to tackle almost any project/construction project, my wife can dream up and hoping someday to lock myself in the shop and build some of the projects I've had in mind. I have lived in Texas most of my life but, I was born in Pennsylvania where my brother still resides and I say "resides" because you haven't lived until you live in Texas.

I'm looking forward to asking for or reading about everyone's ideas, suggestions, experiences, etc.

Poor John

P.S. Poor John is the nickname given to me by the people that work with my wife after she told them of some of her requests/projects.

Welcome, John! Perhaps you need to do like I do - use your hearing loss to your fullest advantage.

Read the "PS" in the original post. Selective hearing loss could work to Poor John's advantage.

The hearing loss excuse doesn't work in this day and age of e-mail, texting, im'ing, social networking, etc. Don't forget old-fashioned post-it's, too!
