You have a daughter that is a Phd candidate and a son that is following in your foot steps as a rod builder??? It doesn't get much better than that. All I can say is it has to be good genes from their mother.
Ummm - no doubt about it all from their mom. Sean (actually a fairly gifted musician) is just visiting. Back from Ireland until early February. He's pretty good at wrapping rods too. Third child, Keith is finishing up university with a double major (English / American Studies & teaching certificate). Yes, I truely am blessed ... and my daughter (Phd / MD) had a baby just before Thanksgiving --- She's the obvious "go getter"!
