Ever hear of Jummywood?

Page 2 of 3  


Say, I tossed you a couple waves this past weekend as I passed through Grass Pants on the way to visit family near Reno. One of these days I'm gonna have to look you up and visit for a while - if, of course, you will grant me an audience.

I didn't see you, but you could have seen my house on the long downhill between Exits 55 and 48 at mile marker 2 of the speedo check. The Limousine Ranch (after "limousin" cattle) is the most visible site in my particular valley.
Yes, I'd be honored. Do stop by some time, Owie. You can help me clean the shop. ;)

Well, blessmysoul. Believe it or not I was just thinking about you a couple weeks ago. Can't remember why but I was, really. I do remember the divorce - a real kick in the pants for all of us when we lost you here on the wreck.
Vegas, huh? Say, isn't that Tom Gauldin fella down there in LV too? Good to hear from you Jim.
(New readers will do themselves a huge favor if they google Gauldin and his stories - especially the hair trimming he gave his wife.)

Hey there Owen! Yup - I think it's me. New life - no wife - recovered from the $$$ damage she ran me through. Things are great out here. Love the climate, the surroundings, and if you wake up at 3 AM and can't sleep - go to a casino! LOL!
Other good reading on the wreck archives is the history of Jummywood! LOL! I believe it's Nahmie who provides all the info to this link. I have really missed you guys. Nahms and Kay were in Houston a few years back and stopped by to visit. Great folks! I think I'm gonna have to go to Phully's site and bump him there. Good to see ya.

Why bother with the link? For those needing a chuckle at this time of year, and for all the newbies who never heard of "Jummywood", here is the complete unabridged story.
A question was posed:

Sit back boys and girls, and let me tell you the story of the Jummywood tree.
Long ago, in a small town in Oz lived a man who we'll call Phully. Now Phully was a talented and gifted wood basher who could pop out an entertainment center, two end tables, a bookcase, and two wine racks before lunch. After noon, when he finished his 9th Fosters, he went back into the shop and there before him stood a poor Aussie waif.
"Pardon me sir, but I'm hungry. Could I have the crumbs from your mullet sandwich - please sir?" Phully was all choked up ~ not because the kid was hungry but because he had just killed off his last grog and was going to miss his 2:00 "coffee break" if he didn't go to market and pick up another 6 cases. "I tells you what you farkin little elf - you stay here and tend to the shop while I go get some more grog - er I mean groceries and I'll be right back."
Along the way Phully spied some old mates at the pub down the street and wandered back to the shop after dark. The poor emaciated waif had taken all the pine boards off the back of the shop and built some of the finest furniture Phully had ever seen. It had a touch of old country flavor to it and in his awe and amazement, he awakened the lad and bought him his own loaf of bread.
"This is the finest 'kin work in the land. Reminds me of the talents of my top bloke in the states, it does - Jummy McNamara in Texas," he exclaimed. From here on out, you will be my indentured servant. Now *no one* is to know that you build this fine furniture for me - I'll always put me leather patch on it I will." But if anyone asks - you never touch the jarrah - only the pine."
"Peen?" the young lad replied. "No - I said pine" in his usual Aussie drawl.
"Pain?" the youth queried again.
"For the love of God son, call it Jummywood!"
So for those of you non-believers who don't believe there is such a thing as a Jummywood tree, let me assure you there is. Just as there is a Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, and E.T. It ain't as expensive as walnut or ipe, but I mean after all - wood don't grow on trees!
So there you have it - the birth of Jummywood.
Now close your eyes, think good thoughts, and go to sleep.
Good night boys and girls.
Jummy
