Thank you Matthew. I just could not find that thread. By the way, I got my new Turning Wheels today and am saving your article for a bed time story. I agree with Bob Palma. You do have writting talent. Keep up the good work! Huck

When Matthew doesn't have a REAL job, he has to be my helper. This week I had him on a rooftop building a chimney in 100 degree sunshine. If that doesn't make him do some serious thinking, then I don't know what to do with him. NT

That is a good point. Having had some of those tough jobs, I appreciated the softer ones even more. Over the years, I found that those that complained the most about being an engineer or a teacher were those that never worked (as a full time, make a living job) a real physical job.

Construction work in all kinds of weather helped me decide to go back to college after 3 years. Teaching was by far the most stressful job I ever had. The grass is always greener until you get there.

Agree! I asked my wife (car chick of 49 years duration) if she had looked at the August issue of Turning Wheels. She said, "Yes, and that Matthew is a cool guy!" Then we reminisced about the time when we were passing through Hazelhurst, GA. I spotted the signs and the Studebakers and made a U-turn. Matthew was probably about twelve then. He gave me a very complete and informative tour of the Studebakers on the property. I was very impressed by Matthew then and still am. He has talent.
