When you look at this pre-1970 photo of @me,

you can see that I'm offspring of a maker family



The late 60's were not really golden years (first house with warm water, bath, shower, flushing toilet in 1984), so a happy childhood depended on the maker spirit of the family.


All clothes except shoes made by mom. Wool recovered from discarded pull-overs

Toy made by dad. From throwaway wheelbarrow and bicycle parts, plus some scrap wood.


Thanks Mom and Dad.
