Kiln heat, aluminum cuts and gasoline fumes

By Willis Webb


“Honest sweat and skinned knuckles never hurt anyone.” “Boy, don’t ever let me hear of you backing up to get a paycheck.” — quotes from L. Ray Webb, circa 1940s-50s Dad was right. A lot. Much more than he ever got credit for from me. On occasion in more than 55 years of writing this sort of missive, I have quoted my dad, L. Ray “Son” Webb. As a matter of fact, the second quote, about a paycheck, has led this column before. Physically hard, tough work is good medicine. It will make you appreciate a job that is not as physically wearing as manual labor. You’ll gain an appreciation, too, for furthering your education and the impetus provided by knowing and caring parents to achieve the goal of a college degree.
