Toward the end, Jim sent me some tools I never wanted.
This was my friend. I loved him.
We both knew what the tools meant. It was very very bittersweet.
I shed a big tear and tucked the tools away.
This year is the 10 year anniversary from when he made them.
It occurs to me that I may or may not live forever.
I know Jim considered this tattered old Porch home, same as me.
I know he would be proud they were distributed here.
I am offering 3 handmade, signed, Millrat tools,
(2 chisels and a delicate beautiful scratch awl)
absolutely free in a drawing.
3 winners, one tool each.
(And don't worry I still have some.)
Just send me your name and I will write it on a piece of paper and draw
the winners from a hat.
I will draw a week from today.
(You'll just have to trust me for this part but there no way I am going
to cheat, even if I love you. haahaahah)
He deserves to have his legacy kept alive as long as we can.
Cheers, ya Millrat!!
If you don't know who Jim Thompson was, do some web digging and find
out. He loved tools and woodworking.
