We made a visit to my Son, & his family while they were living in Minot, ND.

My Granddaughter was in first grade, this was in 1995.

She came home from school one day,

& asked me if she could take me to Show, & Tell.

I had to figure out what to do,

so I stopped by a house in the neighborhood that a guy was restoring,

& I asked him if he had any wood scraps.

He told me to look in his scrap pile, & I found this piece of Walnut.

The following afternoon I spent some time with the first grade class, demonstrating carving.

The kids, & the teacher really enjoyed themselves.

Stephanie was the hero of her class that day.

Great story Dick. You never know, you might just have kicked off a few woodworking careers with that lesson.

Hi Dick and Barb, that had to be your granddaughters day. I did that for my granddaughter only I was the show and tell, it seems that the teacher was an ex Army Colonel, and I was asked to talk about my military career, 2 yrs. drafted. So I lied and sounded as gung ho as I could and told all the kids a big lie about the Vietnam war, but that I was proud that I served and did my duty when called. The kids had lots of questions, the colonel (retired) was impressed and I learned a lesson about doing things I was’nt prepared to do and the world went on.

Thanks Mike!

I enjoyed your story, maybe you should run for office, with a resume like that.
