Papa's Model T...

...the paperback version.  Now available on Amazon here: Papa's Model T

A friend from work suggested I send free copies to grade schools and ask the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teachers to give it a read...if they like it, choose a student or two they know enjoys reading and see what they think.  All I'd request in return is some honest feedback.  That sounds like a great idea and I'm working on it now.

And speaking of Mr. T, I took him out for a spin today... much driving him around.  Usually the only hand signals you get from other drivers is the one finger salute if you make a mistake or are driving too slow to suit them or whatever...but with Mr. T, people smile and wave and give the thumbs up sign.  Too funny.

A couple of years ago I bought a kit for a manual gramophone from ThinkGeek...never tried putting it together because the instructions were in Japanese!  But the pictures were actually pretty clear, so I asked one of the hardware techs from work if he wanted to take a running jump at it, and he did:

The crazy thing about this kit is the "needle" is just a piece of bamboo sharpened to a point...and it actually works...sort of...more or less...

Recently came to terms with Bob Adams of Ronson Repair for this lighter:
Love the art deco styling of these touch tip lighters from the 1930's.

Later, mcm fans...
