    Tools+kids=tragedy very sad story

    I just learned that the 22 month old son of one of my former students somehow shot himself in the chest with a brad nailer--it hit his heart. He is in critical condition and not doing well. It's been years since I've seen his mom, and I don't even know his name. I'm sure that prayers and good thoughts will be appreciated.

    thoughts and prayers coming your way.
    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Ron, so sad. Those little guys see us handle those tools and then with no instruction, pick them up and watch out. Prayers being said for the little guy and family.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Wow, hoping for a good turn out.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    The terrible two's. At that age they are into everything. Sure hope the little guy has a full recovery.
    It wasn't a party unless it involved fire, an ATV, a chain saw and whiskey.
