Happy birthday dad!

I’ve not ever been very good about giving gifts.  I really want to be better though and finally feel good about one here so have to share it.

One of my grandfathers was a pilot.  A student at our school likes to make scale models of airplanes.  I asked my dad what kinds of planes my grandfather flew and commissioned the student to make a series of them.  Here are the first two.

The C-47

The C-119

They are just what I like to give in a gift:

  • Personally relevant
  • Hand-made and even one-of-a-kind
  • Purchased from a person, not a corporation
