Playing With His New Welding Machine He Is

I’m glad to hear that my step-father is enjoying the millermatic welder that my brother and sister and I pooled our resources together to give to him for his birthday yesterday. My mother called to say that he had spent most of the day out in his shop playing (if you can call welding playing) with it, only to come it once for lunch before heading back out for more. It isn’t easy finding something that floats my step-father’s boat on gift giving occasion so this idea was a stroke of genius that my kid brother deserves a pat on the back for thinking of. Beats the heck out of the socks, slippers and ties that the old man is used to getting from us throughout the years.
