"My grandfather had retired from driving a milk truck by the time I was old enough to know him. I always knew him to be a saw sharpener. He ran a business out of a workshop in his garage. It was not a large business, he just got customers by word of mouth. My sister and I loved to walk around looking at all of the tools and saw sharpening equipment. Grandfather would never let us in his workshop unless he was with us and we were not to touch anything because we could get hurt. Unfortunately, he had learned that the hard way. He had a couple of accidents while sharpening saw blades that left him missing half of two fingers on his left hand and part of one finger on his right hand. He would make a point of hiding his hands either behind his back, in his pockets, or in his lap when pictures were being taken." Nancy Norris <tnheyl@@yahoo.com>
