"One boy, one brain. Two boys, half a brain. Three boys, no brain at all."

Yup! A cute one! A smart one! And a boarder line fool.

If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

I worked with a guy until he retired last year named Lyle.  He was a spitfire, always ribbing every one but he had some good lines.   He really liked to give the younger techs a hard time. Keep in mind he was only five foot tall.  After some of his ribbing someone would always jokingly say something like

Tech "Don't make me come over there Lyle"
Lyle "Whats stopping ya?....I'll tell ya.  Fear and common sense"

Or probably some of my favorites were after he would try to explain a process repeatedly to someone who just wasn't getting it

"I wish I could communicate it to you better, but I left my crayons at home."
and
"Let me see if I can get you to understand this with a diagram youll understand.  Hey quick someone bring me some macaroni and some glue!"

I cant figure out which one I like better: working with wood or making the tools to work with wood.
