Harry is one of my primary mentors, and the prime reason I take the time and energy to write my own blog, and the many hours I spend to share the writing of others.

Below are some excerpts from Harry’s blog on subject of Crafting during October 2015:

October 5, 2015

It’s easy. take a hunk of wood and put in on your lathe, several minutes later you have a Christmas ornament. Don’t let anyone know how easy it is.

 I always wear a full face sheild and never wear loose clothing that could get caught. If your lathe vibrates it is telling you that your piece of wood is unbalanced and unsafe. Keep your tools sharp because a dull tool is also unsafe. Most of all have confidence in yourself and enjoy what you are oing.

I am so busy with my wood turning and working on our 2015 FMN Cookbook I don’t have time to think about my Alzheimer’s. Our cookbook is up to 235 pages and still growing. I think keeping busy keeps me from thinking of the buggy boos and things that go bump in the night.

Between the Memory Cafes I attend, webinars I am involved in and the mentor groups I speak at, plus all the advocating I do with anyone that will listen to me, it is no wonder that I have no time to worry about my dementia.

My Thoughts On Dementia is not being upgraded like it should be not because I ran out of thoughts but I find it is more beneficial to sit on my bench and do some reading. I know it will catch up to me because so many people tell me to slow down but

if I slow down,
I will remember that I have Alzheimer’s
and start to cry.

Santa has been busy in the shop even though it is not Halloween or even close to Thanksgiving. Doesn’t matter because he is having the time of his life. He has a deadline of turning 100 ornaments before the tree goes up. Birdhouses and icicles on the schedule
