Well as promised I took Mike Galloway (mikega), over to Southern Kitchen Restaurant, it’s been here since the late 1940’s, they still have the old juke boxes on the wall. Anyway, I hooked him up on a good old Southern breakfast.
Mike said that he said his normal breakfast consists of a pastry and a Diet Pepsi, mine is usually coffee, not today. Lets see ..he had a bowl of grits , an egg, toast, biscuits and gravy, home fries, and a Pepsi, now I’ve got to tell ya..he ate all the grits… I did a little better than Mike, but we’re not going there. Ed joined us as well, and he out did both Mike and me. Ed had country ham, eggs ,toast, homefries, biscuits and gravy, and a second order of home fries andorange juice and Iced Tea. I got pictures of Mike doing the grits. He must have liked them as he ate them all, and said they were good,( lots of butter,salt and pepper). When it was all said and done, and we waddled back over to the shop everyone moaning and groaning, no thought of lunch or dinner. We started scuffing the seal coat on his vanity and we all look like bloated frogs…and are moving like snails. What was i thinking? I decided to post to the pictures, because he has already threatened me. Yesterday when I was dovetailing my drawers, I got my “hind parts afore” I cut the pins in the side pieces, and the tails in the fronts and backs…totally opposite from what they should be…that wasn’t funny..i have no more yellow pine to remake the drawers, so I have to use them, I could get by with them on this project, but I’ve got me an idea. I’ll show it to you later. What was funny was that when I showed Mike my mistake he laughed and said. “So what’s it worth for me not to
post this all over the Internet?” ( laughing of course) I said nothing, I’m gonna do it, hey I’m not perfect by a long shot, and this isn’t the first time I’ve done it, nor i doubt the last, normally I just start over, but in this case I don’t have enough wood, ( well actually i do)..I could cut the sides down to make fronts , and remake the sides….but like I said I ‘ve an idea. Won’t be perfect, but it will camouflage my oops enough…here is a hint..Kehoe spline jig…, so here we are sitting, eating breakfast, me taking pictures, Mike shoveling his face, so i look at at him and ask…”so whats it worth for me not to put these all over the Internet?” ….he about spit food all over the place laughing…but he never answered…so here we are!
