So I get a call on Thursday morning that my grandaughter wants a wishing well for her birthday (on Saturday).
She said, “We tried to talk her out of it for the last week, but she really wants a wishing well. Oh by the way, her party is on Saturday Morning. Why would a 5 yr old girl want a wishing well? Its not for a grandpa to ask questions, just get busy in the shop, and more than a 2 day notice would be nice.
Results: A wishing well. Grandaughter says “Thanks Pa, now I don’t have to look at others peoples wishing well, I got my own”. When she looks into the well, I wonder what she is thinking or wishing about. The wonderful thing about working with wood is seeing the smile on a grandaughters face.
