What a wonderful photo of your grandfather.
And great to see he's still doing his craft.

Ooh OOh I almost forgot to play.... What a great photo though, you have to tell me what he's doing because I can't figure it out.. To me it looks like the finger ends of workman/leather gloves were cut off.

Since you asked. :) Grandpa is grinding a stone. He's teaching me how to cut, grind, and polish stones and this is one of my first lessons. Aren't his hands awesome?!? There are so many stories in those hands.

Hey Melissa. Wordless Wednesday is something I found last week and it's SO fun! :) It's just posting a photo with no words. Just photo(s). It's hard for me to not use words. LOL

Wow. What a picture! It certainly captures a lot! You are a lucky girl who can experience such a craft first hand from an expert!

I love that image. I can imagine a poem going along with it.
