I was busy working in my workshop when my oldest grandson came down with a firehouse kit my wife had gotten from a garage sale from home depot.
he wanted to put it together with his granfather.
he and his brother did the build and then all three painted it.
Let me tell you I had an awesome 4th of july afternoon.

I was somewhat older when I broke into my dad’s locked tool shed and grabbed tools to build a little bench to hammer on. Then I made some crude boats. Cut the ends off some scrape board w/handsaw into a point, and nailed a block of wood on top for the cabin.LOL! Dad came home and found me w/his tools. Got angry which was his first response. Later said “If I show you how to use tools, and give you your own, will you stay out of my tool shed?” Said “yes.” He cleaned out the front of the basement to reveal a bench with a machinist vice, showed me the proper way to treat and use tools. I said” can I use your power drill?” Told me ” learn how to make mistakes with hand tools first, they will not be so big.” His next power tool was a birthday present from me. He said, ” You must need a saber saw.” LOL! He was right, but I only borrowed it from time to time.

They will remember!
