~Timeless Advice~ A Pep Talk from Mr. Sawdust  

My Father, Wallace Kunkel, was quite a character. This excerpt is from his monthly newsletter, Bench Talk, which was for woodworkers back in the 70's and 80's.

"THERE IS AN INNATE VIBRANCE IN THIS COUNTRY that will prevail through all our times of weak leadership, economic confusion, gutless politicians.  Recession or depression, there is a pioneer strength in this country that is very much alive.  Whatever comes is momentary -- even though the “moment” is a year or two -- and those, especially those who can work in a craftsman-like manner with their hands, will not only endure -- but will be the first to surface in the good times -- like a crocus in the spring."
