I am grateful for George and the loving
care he has given me as I face all of my
medical issues. I am glad he has his
leather work. It is his comfort zone
and gives him something to do besides
worry about me.. He loves it. .
His talent is amazing and more awesome
with each piece he does. He loves trying
different things. This year his passion has
been making clocks and different styles
of purses. They are amazing. People,
including me, have come to think of him
as a miracle worker.
For Christmas this year, Rhonda asked
him to make little stirrup bag purses for
her six little granddaughters. Their
mothers would ask them to chose their
favorite Disney Princess. They would
also have their name on the purse which
would make them unique and personal for
each girl. In addition, we decided he would
make one for our other fun and sassy little
great granddaughter, Ryann, who lives in
California. She loves seeing her cousins at
our family Reunions and when they visit at each
others home. It would be the perfect Christmas
gift from us.
The mothers would ask their daughters who their
favorite Disney Princess was. Ryann, Presley,
Mallory and Gracie chose a Princess. It was fun
that they each chose a different one. Rhonda
wanted a horse and flowers for Nixin, Harlee,
and Montana. They love horses and want to be
cowgirls like their G-Mama. Tooled and
painted, with different colors of suede inserts,
these little purses were adorable.
Since he had made purses for the girls, I asked
him to make wallets for our great grandsons,
Brexton and Ethan.
For Brexton's birthday in late October, he had
asked George to make him a clock featuring
Marvel Comic's villain, Deadpool.
He had recently made me a Mickey Mouse and
Friends clock, I loved it so much I thought it
would be a perfect Christmas present for Marie.
She is my sister, Theresa's daughter and besides
being my niece, she is a dear friend.
Jenna loved these clocks so much, she asked
George to make clocks for her mother and
sister. She wanted Humming Birds for her
mother and an African theme for her sister,
depicting Missy and her husbands 2 - 1/2
years living in Africa.
When he finished the Christmas gifts, for his
own pleasure, he made a a 12" by 20"
picture of Santa Clause driving a stagecoach
with four teams of horses. It is called "A
Cowboy's Christmas".and has a "Merry
Christmas From Arizona" Greeting. He
framed it and attached tiny twinkling lights
around the frame. It was such a happy
addition to our decorations.
His masterpiece was another 12" by 20"
picture of the last supper. It is one of the
most amazing pieces he has done. It is
See what I mean when I say we all think
he is a "Miracle Worker"? in October,
November and December, he made six
purses two wallets, five clocks, and two
You would think he would want to rest
for awhile, but in January and February
he made two more clocks, one of "Bambi"
and one of "The Lady And The Tramp"
Bambi was for Jared, Tracey's, son, his
wife Christy and their new baby
"Lady And The Tramp" was for Rhonda.
The movie came out when she was a
little girl and it has always been her
favorite Disney movie. It was a thank
you for all she does for us, especially
since there is now so much I can't do.
We sent the movie on DVD with each
