Street Tales: Our rejected gifts

Street Tales: A blemish

Street Tales: A blemish

As a child growing up, like all others in my peer group, I would be very conscious of my appearance. The way I dressed, (within budgetary restraints of course), the way I looked after myself and so on. As kids normally are, they can be your best of friends or your worst of enemies.

Street Tales: The Bird Feeder

Street Tales: The Bird Feeder

Shortly after I built the book box, I was on a roll in my workshop, so I built a bird feeder. One of my great pleasures early in the morning, is to sit at my computer or read the morning paper and with the blinds open I can proceed with whatever I happen to be working on at the time, all the while watching my feathered friends as they have their breakfast.
Clown party – a really bad idea

Clown party – a really bad idea

Some things immediately strike you as a bad idea. And sometimes it is such an obviously terrible idea that it strikes you upside the head. Take the “Clown Party” for instance. Worst idea ever!
