Cora and I just returned from a trip to our local Woodworking Store. They hosted an open house as they have recently expanded their operations and we thought we would check out their bigger facilities. The store 'experts' are both men and women and have been really helpful in getting my shop set up and providing all kinds of tips on how to use the tools, finishes etc.
We decided that we would investigate using some different kinds of wood for our next projects and Cora was especially taken by the beauty of two pieces: Bocote (the one she is holding in the picture) and Cocobolo and we decided to purchase them.
Now, its not unusual to see women in this store and there are many women who are experts at working with wood who frequent this store. However, as you can imagine, Cora is a woman who attracts attention, especially dressed in her tight jeans. The man at the check out counter didn't have a chance.
As he was ringing up our purchases, including the two pieces of wood, he asked us what we were going to make with them. Cora came back with, "Why they are going to be made into Impact Therapy Tools". You could see the blush rise on the man's face immediately. Then she quipped, "... you should see the purpleheart one we made for my daughter!".
Life with Cora is always an adventure!
No wonder I keep falling deeper in Love with her!
