Make sure that you teach him calligraphy too - you were also good at it!

As guardians for our ten year old great grandson, we found out that 
the schools today have abandoned handwriting, leaving it all to PC 
keyboards,  When he was asked to sign a Cub Scout participation 
paper, he couldn't write.  Even his teachers don't think its that 
important.  Geeesh.

Since then we picked up materials and did home-schooling for this 
important function!  Easy instruction and he picked it up instantly.

(next in line is some CW instruction leading to a ham ticket.  hope 
it works) :-)

Pardon me for the OT

Perry
