tired teacher

John Lucas
>I just spent the whole day with a friend teaching him to make ornaments. He is having prostate removeal surgery in a week or so and wanted to hand make some gifts for his family just incase he doesn't make it. He is a brand new turner. We actually got 3 made and they look pretty good. I am totally worn out. It is much harder teaching than actually doing the work. I believe I could have turned 8 or 10 in the same time it took to get these 3 done and I would be less tired. Anyway he's moderately young and healthy so baring complications or unforseen spread of the cancer he will probably be OK although layed up for quite a while.
