I have done a lot of different jobs in my short 66 years, The last time I worked a job , I drove bus for 15 yrs. Little over a year ago had a stroke and had to stop working outside the home. Lost most all sight in my right eye and about 30% in the left eye. Just can't understand why they do not want me to drive. LOL. Have a great wife (silly her) , she has stayed by my side for 40 yrs. We have raised 13 kids. We have lost 3 of our boys, have 26 grande kids, and 6 great grande kids. My toy tester.lol
I love making my wooden toys and am trying to sell some to build a real work shop. I now have a space in the basement about 9X17 feet ,not a lot of room to work or store supplies . My wife looks over my work and tells me what is wrong. Some times she helps with the cutting, something about she wants wants me to keep the 9 and 3/4 Fingers I have left..lol. My dad was a toy maker until he passed at 72 yr. and always told us "if you real like doing something you will always find a way no matter what." I try to live my life that way.
