Enjoy!
It looks like we've had a good number of viewers of the photos already and that feels good to see so much interest from so many in the group.

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, or if you know it's possible, but anyone with a free Flickr account can make comments on the pictures also, and you're all welcome to do so. I add in a few simple comments, but I think it would fun to see the members add some captions to the pictures as well. So if you feel up to it, have at it.

We could extend the fun and learning beyond the meeting!

Default Fall Meeting 10-29-2011

Well I missed out by being sickly! Missed out on a juried art show in near my home town also. Just got home.

I viewed the pics and looked like all were having fun while they learned something. Maybe Wild Bill (a.k.a. the Wood Butcher) did a piece on tool sharpening(?). I learned a lot from the last such meeting and would like to thank Bill again for that help! It has helped me greatly.

One good side to the story is I didn't get run over by the Caddy going north on I65!

Our attendance was off a little and I believe it was due to folks working on their Halloween costumes at the last minute. We want to provide an entertaining format but we also think folks like to learn a little something to take home and try, that is what keeps the craft interesting and challenging. We also want to provide a place for the membership to have a voice as to what the chapter does and assure that we are not just going through the motions but actually providing what is wanted and needed. Attendance is a must if you want to voice your opinion and desires for future gatherings so come and meet people who are at every level of pen making and will gain from your expertise and you will learn from them. Shakespeare once said, "Every man is my superior in that I can learn something from him". (well it may not have been Shakespeare, I always refer to him if I'm not sure of a source)

It looks like Ralph Waldo Emerson said something very similar:
http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Ralph_Waldo_Emerson
(about five up from the bottom of the quotes section)
  • Every man I meet is in some way my superior; and in that I can learn of him.
    • As quoted in Think, Vol. 4-5 (1938), p. 32

Bill, I fully agree with your comments about what will keep us strong as a chapter and keep people coming. With that said, and in the form of my comments and input as to my desire and opinion about where we go from here: Great job, I enjoy and learn every meeting. I always look forward to attending. Making friends, learning, sharing. Keep the bus rolling.

Oh, and Earnie, you every heard of Bella Fleck? He took Banjo to the Jazz world.
