Something Nice . . . that made me all warm and fuzzy this morning . ..
A couple of weeks ago I had a call from a bloke from the City of Melville
(a Local Council in Perth ) about one of my Jarrah park benches he had
spotted on my website - could it be done a certain way to accommodate a
small memorial plaque on the back ?. . and so on.
That he would be in touch again re job order and delivery and such - me
having just bashed out 7 of them for our little shire to pop around in the
various parks and gardens in our little town. .
Anyway - this morning I receive a phone call from a lady who starts off by
identifying herself and saying "you dont know me, but I am the lady for whom
you are making the lovely memorial park bench for my husband . .."
And goes on to tell me some of the gentleman's story - that he was a master
builder and craftsman, with a passion for timber and people . . and that
they had an affinity for the
area in which I now live . .. and the connection with the Swan River - by
which they used to live together - and that the park bench will be placed in
a certain vantage point in a park where this couple used to spend a bit of
time together overlooking the river . .. . ..
And how pleased the family was to have found my site ( under my Swanriver
Furniture banner) and the connection to Nannup etc. .. .
At the end of my conversation with this lovely old lady - I had a flamin
tear in my eye and goose bumps all over . . .. and felt decidedly warm and
fuzzy . . .
So I thought I would pass on this nice story to yiz . . . . knowing that as
craftsmen and general wood butchers yourselves - you would appreciate this
gesture to the memory of a passed master craftsman . . ... .. .
(Cripes - another bit of something in my eye again . . .. .)
