Isaac brushing his teeth and Daddy's leaves





I know the color on this picture is terrible, but I just had to show you Isaac brushing his teeth. If you go to Flickr, there are several of him and his granddaddy.

The other two pictures are of some of my dad's last woordcarvings. He loved to carve these little leaves and give them to the women at the nursing home. These are earrings, about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" long. The pictures don't do them justice, of course. He painted every little vein, they just dont' show up.

This is the kind of thing I used to do before I became addicted to tatting! I wasn't as good as he was, but I enjoyed it!

As usual Isaac is adorable. I thought your dad's leaves were real leaves, amazing and beautiful. You will have to bring some for me to see first hand. Madeline

I love leaves and I would've turned cartwheels to have a pair of those earrings!

Your grandson is a cutie too!

Hi Gina,
Maybe I'll take my woodcarving back up. It would be worth it to see you turn a couple of cartwheels! They are very pretty, thanks. Daddy was proud of his work. I'll have to agree with you on the cute grandson too!
