« Part 1: The final chapter... Part 2 of Goodbye, farewell and amen... series Part 3: More about Thailand »

Since posting the first part of this blog, my wife and I have decided to retire completely ….

And are looking at moving to live in Thailand… so selling the house cars tools and all chattels.

If there are any jocks in Chiang Mai or surrounds, please give me a yell..

So ends another chapter… and a new adventure awaits.

All the best, keep playing safe in the workshop…

I wish you luck Larry, but just because you don’t do anymore woodworking doesn’t mean you can’t still be a part of LJ’s. you have been a fixture around here for a long time, so don’t be a stranger.

Congrats on the retirement, Larry, and wishing you and the Mrs. the best of luck in your new adventures.

I have a friend who was stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam war. He showed us pictures of the country. It sure is a beautiful place. Enjoy!!

Wow Larry that’s a big decision! Your projects have always given me inspiration, more specifically how you integrated new school equipment with old school techniques. I wish you well in your new adventure and hope it brings you and your wife new joys.

There’s a set of lyrics from a Chris LeDoux song that I sometimes use as a “toast” or cheers>

“Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high,
keep your eyes fixed, where the trail meets the sky,
Live like you ain’t afraid to die,
and don’t be scared, just enjoy your ride”
