Y'all might remember me mentioning a friend a while back who is a master wood carver. Name, Len Dillon. He is a master's master. Well, at age 80, a few weeks ago he was hit with a massive stroke. Makes me cry to see such a dynamic person who has given so much to others now helpless. He has lost all function in the left arm, can't hear from left ear and can't turn to look left. Mind is still sharp, thankfully and speech is only slightly impaired. While visiting him at the nursing home his wife was also there. During the visit she said I could come by and take all the wood I want. Now, Len has a large shop building and many thousands of board feet of all kinds of wood stored. It's a small fortune worth. But, I was saddened that she said this in front of him. To me, it was a sign she had given up on his ever regaining enough health to enjoy the shop again. But, on the other hand, she realizes that it must all go and having a friend take it would be better than hiring someone or burning. However, I can't do it. Not while Len is still with us and able to enjoy talking about wood carving/working. I'm sure he has hopes of getting back to work. For an idea of what Len can do, check out his web site:
