The Magic Hands Of Grandpa Jack

It's old dusty and looks used
and abused.
No , not me silly.

This violin was made by my grandfather.
My picture taking
doesn't do it justice.


He was quite handy.
He had made several guitars,
banjos, and this violin. 

I thought of repairing it.
It is not playable.
It is not valuable, only to me.

His garage was a wonderland 
of tools that could fix,
repair, and create.

I wish I had those tools
and those skills.
I don't.

However I do have memories
and this handmade violin.

Thanks Grandpa Jack
