Our daughter was in the play “Much Ado About Nothing” at her high school this Fall. As it is her senior year, I thought it would be nice if we did something big to help out the show. Turns out the director said they needed a bridge. So I donated Matthew’s time and expertise to the cause. We sort of have a running inside joke that I always underestimate the time and effort required for a project, and that was the case here as well. Matthew had never built a bridge before so once again he had a design and engineering challenge. Fortunately, or maybe unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, Matthew and the guys at the shop were “in between” paying projects and had some free time for the bridge construction. Matthew developed the design based on a photo of a bridge the director gave him. The results were well received! She even said that now she will be thinking of plays for the school to perform that involve a bridge.
