    Something I Cut Out For My Nephew

    My Nephew sent me a picture of him in his drag car taking off from the starting line during last years dragging. I think I posted it here a while back. I decided to have a pattern made from it so I could make a picture from it on the scroll saw. This is the finished product. He was very surprised and pleased to receive it.

    Also, my Grandson wanted to come back with us when we went to visit him and his sister last week. We have been having a good time. I put him to work in the shop. He does pretty good, but like most 15 year old boys, gets impatience and expects perfection on the first try. But it is really fun having him here.

    You mean you eventually get over that? Good to hear there's hope yet

    If you are going to make something nice, make it with a statement, use quality an do it right the first time

    That car looks real nice. Nice gift!


    When I was a boy, I learned a lot from my Grandfather, more than just how to do things.

    I learned, morality, self-sufficency, and how to get along better with adults, to name a few.


    The getting along better with adults really came in handy when visiting relitives too,

    and asking for special things like a slice of fresh baked cherry or ruhbarb pie! Yum.


    Now that was back when women knew how to cook, and still would. Fresh pie from scratch. Man-O-man.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    Cool work there Paul and its great to see your grandson wants to spend time with you and in the shop. I still suffer from impatience.
