I have been intrested in wooden birds that fly for some time now, and now we have robots that fly.
This is a must see video.
Woodcarvers of Northwest Arkansas are going to tour Lynn's shop/gallery November 3. Meeting at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Grove at 10:00 AM and Car pooling to Lynn's. If you would like to go email me. We need to give Lynn a heads up on the number comming. As you can see from the post below it will be a real interesting visit. Also you will see many of his carvings that are no longer on his web page.
On another note, our show is comming up in two weeks at the Benton County Fairgrounds. Date is Oct. 15 & 16 from 9 to 4.
From time to time I will share some of my favorite web sites. Lynn Doughty's site is one of those I beleive you will enjoy and appreciate the instruction he offers. He does not publish books on any of his techniques but gladly shares them through hundreds of photos, blog instruction and over 200 videos.
His current series is Muy Caliente and is very informative. He also has a extensive gallery near Grove, OK that he proudly allows visitors. Just call ahead. Below are 2 to give you an idea of his expertise.
His gallery is so close we should consider a car pool and going over as a club sometime.
I hope you enjuoy these.
I grew up on a farm near the town of Frederick Oklahoma and the Frederick Leader was the local paper. In a History Blog (http://www.tillmancountychronicles.blogspot.com/ ), they have reprinted some poems by the editor and owner of the paper from 1910-1941, John Newland. This one rings true today as it did in 1954.
THE DOLLAR ON PARADE
The dollar that at home you spend
Will cheer the ardor of a friend,
Who rushes out to pay a bill
And decorates a neighbor’s till.
The neighbor hands it to a clerk,
With others, for his weekly work,
The clerk forks it over to his wife
Who spends it for the needs of life.
The grocer sticks it in his bag
And makes deposit of his swag,
The banker lets a farmer make
A note, and then the dollar take
As part of funds to make a crop,
To plow and plant and weed and chop;
The farmer pays it to a hand
Who spends his cash to“beat the band.”
And thus the dollar does its part
To keep the life blood in the heart
Of business bounding in your town,
And soon it’s made the trip around
And back it comes to you again
All smiling like a long lost friend.
For home spent dollars are first aid
In keeping business on parade.
John Lynn Newland
Now it looks like our government needs to take note!
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skys on laughter-silvered wings:
Sunward I have climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew-
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
Pilot Officer Gellespie Magee

This is my thought for the day.
