About this blog

Gifts for friends and relatives. More difficult this year than past years. Can't think of any one thing that would make a nice gift for everyone.

Turned Kitchen Scoops

So I'm down to making gifts for the nurses at my doctor's office. I rarely visit the office for a "Sick Call" but I do take care of their computers. It's always an inconvenience for the nurses when I have to interrupt their routines, so I try and make up for it by making each of them a little something every year.    My sister gave me this idea a couple of years ago when she gifted me a turned scoop and I've been meaning to make some ever since.

Optical Illusion Cutting Board For Mr. Ostrasky

I started senior high school in 1961. Somehow, fate steered me into the vocational program of building construction. My teacher was Mr. Lester Ostrasky. Most of us have had that one teacher that we never forget. The one that had the greatest influence on our lives- Mr. Ostrasky is that teacher. Starting in my sophomore year, I gave him a Christmas present and have done so every year since. After the Navy and a few years at the Letterkenny Army Depot, I started my teaching career at the new Vocat
