These cute old skills (does anyone whittle wood, anymore?) were passed on to you, by your parents? Will YOU pass them on to YOUR kids???

My parents are Baby Boomers, so there's nothing 'quaint' about their hobbies. (Unless you count overhauling an engine and wallpapering the house with Christmas cards as 'quaint'.)

My Grandma taught me how to make a proper cup of tea and make cherry jelly. Although I make tea constantly, I haven't made jelly since I was in the single digits. (But I certainly miss her cherry jelly everyday.)

My parents taught me a lot - starting with the basic work-ethic. I was a bachelor until 35 so I was glad that my mom had taught me how to cook, clean and do laundry. I also do a fair amount of DIY projects. My dad taught me to be thorough and plan ' measure 2x cut once'.

I was taught 'measure twice, cut once' too, and I still manage to fuck things up!
