I'm glad people are talking about heirlooms, and flattered they are talking about me. Thanks, Jesse and Melanie and Mr True North BBQ!
In the case of the last article in the St Catharines Standard, the picture is what makes me so happy...(and of course what the wonderful Start me up Niagara is doing!) The tiller was my dad's pride and joy, and my sister had it for years after dad died. When my sister's family downsized, the tiller came to me, but I already had 4! Enough for any woman, I guess.
So I'm happy it is being used and by such great people.
Check out these links! And thanks. When I'm old(er) and gray(er), your words will keep me smiling.
