I wonder if it's a recoverable condition? 25 years and counting. Even with a useless right shoulder, I love to push a well tuned antique hand plane through a piece of wood, then carefully placing it back on the shelf; pain for hours ensues from my complaining right shoulder yet I cannot stop! I better go see a head shrink!

Can someone define strange?

If you're on this forum, here are the major points of normal:
1. Checking for sale list on WN at least twice a day
2. Checking "first Monday" sale items on "Old Tools" list EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK
3. Checking Josh Clark's website for new listings everyday
4. Getting night sweats the night before Patrick Leach posts his monthly for sale
5. Checking Martin's listings, reading EVERY auction listing
6. Stealthfully sneaking into the Patina gatherings, so as to not be noticed by others stealthfully sneaking in
7. Checking all Fine Tool Sale auction listings and not missing their tool sales

When are you in trouble? When you wake one fine morning, not remembering day or days before, and wondering why you're in this van down by the river.
