A Project w/Dad


End of season landscaping. The wife and I are helping Mom get some yard stuff done before winter. We put in this edged area for plantings, and a place for the old lighthouse.

I love working in my simple shop in our garage. Wood, mostly. It's what I learned from my Dad, who learned it from his Dad. Had a chance to restore one of Dad's projects lately, this old lighthouse.

I am in tears too...I just went and grabbed Scott out of the garage where he was working and tinkering to come and read this post...His comment was..."John's dad reminds me of my dad..."...Then we both wiped away a few tears and smiled. A beautiful story touching many in a nostalgic way tonight! :)

I like the post script for where you were sitting...........This was great to read and the sketch is perfect---I've never seen one of these that has lights---must look comforting to your mother... ejmordasky

What a wonderful journal entry! And it's such a cute idea to put the lighthouse in the garden

Really nice journal pages. May the lighthouse bring smiles from across the veils.
