    Hah; get her over here to tell us about it!!

    Grannies can surprise you. Mine was visiting from Missouri many years ago, and wandered up when I was picking through a stack of boatbuilding wood. She made some remark, so I told her what it was. Her response was, "Is it air-dried or Kiln-dried?" Surprised, I asked, "How do you know about that?" Turns out that as a young gal she had been a secretary for a little lumber camp in Arkansas during WW1.

    Hey! My grandmother was a welder . . . tank parts in WWII.

    A weldor if.......

    You are a weldor if you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about that last pass you made....and it wasn't at a member of the opposite gender ( I have to use that word because if I say s*x this danged thing edits it to ***!)

    You are a weldor if you bring test welds, REALLY great looking cover on tests or cut and bent coupons to your wife as presents....and,for some reason, she doesn't seem to appreciate them at all. WTF???????????????

    You are a welder when you make a smart a$$ comment and when your wife slaps you in the back of the head,the slag breaks off and she discovers you do still have hair!
