Happy Thanksgiving to All !! And despite the recent monetary woes, there is still plenty to be thankful for...in fact. at 68 I'm thrilled every day my feet hit the floor; but this Thursday is a day set aside to be thinking of family and friends, so make it a happy day.
Thanks Brian. Thanksgiving Day came a bit early for me this year. Tuesday was our annual shop Fair/Open House at school and a bunch of last Junes grad showed up. Every one of them working iin the trade and continuing to learn. One fellow did a small comversational program on the TRAK mill. Beep, beep in rapid succession and he had it running. Last year it was beep............beep and son on. Great to see him so confident. Another showed me a cell phone picture of a drill bit he is working on, 7000 lbs and tons of complex CNC milling on it.
Another former student is in his second year at University of Connecticut school of engineering, on full scholarship to boot. He continues to work at Whitcraft Tool a local top level shop. They love hime there and his future is unlimited.
Really made my day and makes up for the chuckle heads that come through the shop.

Thank you, Brian. We feel the same way. Everyone is together, the pumpkin pie just came out of the oven and the turkey just went in. No rain, no wind, and the ancient furnace is still putting out heat. Loose shoes, etc...let the economy go to hell, I'll take this any day.
