I truly enjoy all your posts and this last one is a dandy. Stay close to family and friends and God Bless.
Thank You Smoke!!I love your stories, and especially those about craftsmen. Tell us another!
My dad was a second generation South Dakota carpenter during the Depression era with grandpa and my uncle. They got tired of the grasshoppers eating the barn, so they moved to the west coast to build Army camps before WWII. Kind of ironically, they both became science teachers after the war, building houses during the summers. Grandpa kept building houses and barns, then kid toys as he got older.
I started out working on Hueys and CH46’s as a civilian A&P mechanic in the states. I guess working with your hands is a genetic thing. I prize the tools I have from my dad and grandpa. Some of them get used every day on my projects.
Thank You Tall !!Thanks for sharing. It's cool to see where you have come from, especially since you have so much great contribution to the site!
You keep posting whatever you want brother. I don't always comment on all posts these days but I often check out most new posts as I come across them.
Bear I just read this. We have a lot in common from volunteering for the draft, Vietnam, agent orange, heart stuff and starting our own businesses. You have my respect not just from your tutorials I've followed for many years but for our similarities on life's path.
