License Plates

One thing that I really enjoy is collecting license plates to display in two places. One is the current garage where the Corvette lives along with metal advertising signs related to motor vehicles and related businesses. When the new garage for the 1941 Ford is completed I’ll move those that are Ford related. The other site to display license plates is the Bike House where Cat’s Harley trike and my custom Chopper live. I display motorcycle license plates there with metal advertising signs related to motorcycles and related businesses. It is great fun – some of the license plates go back to near 1900.
I’d like to offer to trade one of my Bird’s Eye Maple loom kits for a motorcycle license plate from where you live! I don’t need or have room to display an unlimited number, but if you have one and are willing to mail it to me, email me and we’ll work out the details.
We have not been able to ride for awhile having been sick for so long, and now so cold. We have electrically heated gloves for very cold weather, and Cat is about to have a heated vest as well. She’s a bit more sensitive while she refers to me as “The Polar Cat”. Fits as a former student of hers in San Antonio started calling me “Mr. Cat”. Still, some of those do not know my actual name……
Great joy and happiness to everyone!


Take a bite of this and chew on it:

The Left Wing and Right Wing are on the same bird. The bird cannot fly unless both wings work together……………………………….

I fear for the future of America unless our wings can learn to fly together again.  I am so ashamed that one of our wings is so very badly broken.  We gotta fix this or the bird will not fly again.


New Sample Example!

Here is another sample of a customer’s weaving. Such a very pretty example of individual effort. Thanks to Anne of Flax and Twine!
On a personal note I’m still recovering from a very severe case of the flu. Sickest I’ve been in my 71 years. Would not recommend it as a course to lose 20# in just a few days……. Hoping to register the 1941 Ford truck tomorrow. I’ve still not been well enough to drive it YET!
Cheers, Jim

I have not seen my high school play football since the fall of 1963 but have followed them since. Just now I listened to the Artesia, New Mexico Bulldogs win their Thirtieth State football Championship by 48-14! What a joy it must be for those fine young men. I have had people ask me “just what are they feeding those boys down there?” It is not just football but many sports – boys and girls – where championships are won. Artesia is known as The City of Champions in New Mexico.
