It's birthday time again for our grandson, Wyatt; and time to bear with this Grammy as she reminisces.
He has always spent a lot of time at our house mostly with his Papa "making things"!  This kid always has an idea for a project. 
This was one of the first of his ideas.  He was a pre-schooler at the time, and told Papa he wanted to make a 'talking ladder'.  Bob went along with it as Wyatt told him what he wanted.  They dug in the scrap pile, sawed, hammered, and painted. And this is what a 'talking ladder' looks like --
At least a hundred projects followed:

The projects got bigger and so did the kid --
Now he is learning how to make knives under the tutorship of the very patient people at Ren-Ten Kustom Knives.  This is his latest project ----
No automatic alt text available.

But, to be able to work here on the knives, he needed his very own super grinder.  So what is a Papa to do, but buy Wyatt's first grownup-power-tool toy to celebrate his 16th birthday.
He and Papa have a deal -- the grinder stays in our workshop until Wyatt has his own place for it.  (Ulterior Motive: Bob can now sharpen our very dull knives.)  Win-win and they are both very happy with a new toy.

Happy Birthday, grown-up sweet child!

PS:  And Happy Valentine's Day to both of our heart-tuggers:
