Thankful: Apprenticeship

Dave is one handy man, I gotta say.  He can fix just about anything.  From what I hear, he learned several tricks of the trade living next door to his grandpa.  He was Grandpa D's shadow, following him around and working on little projects.  I am forever thankful Grandpa D taught Dave so many handy skills.

Today, I am also thankful for a grandpa who is doing the same thing for Winston.  Letting him follow him around -- like a little apprentice -- teaching him  things, entrusting him with tools, and just being patient with a very curious little boy (all confined within the space of a small bathroom renovation).

Thanks, Papa.  I'm sure W's future wife will thank you someday, too.
