I feel it is my civic duty to alert all woodcarvers to a very hazardous condition that may exist if you carve at a senior center, as I do. If you click on the photo you will easily see that my lap has wood chips stuck to it. This happens whenever I sit and carve. The presence of the wood chips is usually not hazardous, but what happened next at the senior center was. When I stand up the chips usually fall off or I brush them off. This time neither occurred. I walked out of the area to get a cup of coffee. Now at this point you must understand that the ratio of women to men at a senior center must be about 150 women to one man. And I'll bet that all of the women still have the "mother" instinct. Or whatever it is that would cause them to brush the wood chips off someone.
