A Different Kind of Art

My dad is an artist. Not in the sense of the word that most people think. He isn't a painter or a sculptor but he creates. This is one of his creations. He built this buggy himself--from scratch. Not a kit or anything like that. He is very proud of it and rides it in some of the local Christmas parades. He also makes knives. From scratch! He cuts the blades and tempers the steel in a very hot oven. He make the handles from different materials. And he even cuts and stitches his own sheaths. I am very proud of my dad. He is amazing.

What a cool guy. I guess a creative streak runs through your family.
