New use for turning shavings

Dick Hines
>We had an ice storm Saturday and my drive way was coated with 1/2 of ice. I have 2 4x4 trucks but my company truck is not. I had to call in today and tell the boss I could not get the truck out of the drive way. Tried Sunday and all I did was slide around. Used all the kitty litter I had no hand,10 lbs. Today I was looking at all the shavings under the lathe. It took me 2 hours but I got the truck out. I will not buy any more kitty litter unless I am changing to oil in my trucks.

I also got 5 pens and two bowls finished and one big elm bowl roughed out. Maybe ice and snow are not so bad after all.
