You're not George - I may be younger but I treasure my father's tools,  
particularly those he got from his own father.

I do not think mine will bear any value for my own kids. Nor do they  
matter to me. But my elders did to their own, hence the feeling I guess.

Wood, poor iron, leather, and more importantly SWEAT, what can they be  
compared with nowadays? :-)

One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible  
to the eye. Antoine de Saint Exup?ry in Le Petit Prince.
