My grandson (2 1/2 yrs old) took a turn oiling both of the Model Ts this morning. He’s a great big helper and a Model T fanatic. After giving him a quick lesson, he managed to do all of them, including the back ones, all by himself. He even knew when to stop filling them up.
Thats awesome! Looks to be a Steve Jelf fan by the cloths.
Excellent work young man! Keen attention to detail. I bet he will enjoy his next ride a little more knowing he helped keep it going.
My exact word when I seen the photo Tim "priceless", should be framed and hung a special place !!!
Put those pictures with the title, so when he inherits, he will understand why...
My 3 year old granddaughter helping "PaPa T" building his tire table.
Well! I'm glad for you that he is learning to do it right.
Many years ago, one of my sons told his mother,"I put water in the pickup." She said, "Thank you".
Next time I started it up It wouldn't run without choking it all the time. Then I found out that he had put the water in the gas tank! I had to drain the tank the fuel line and filter, the carburetor and change the oil!
Now about 50 years later I get a laugh, but then I was very angry!
Norman thats a good one. My boy at about 3 was with me working on my rental house. He played around my 88 pickup while I worked. Got ready to leave and put him in the car seat and shut the door. It sounded funny so I opened the door and found nothing out of place. Got in driver side and drove home. Upon shutting truck off I tried to open my door but it would not open. I tried his door and no luck. I pushed pulled pried and finally got my door open but could not get his to open. Now this truck had manual locks. I started checking out latches and found he had slid quarters from the cup holder with change into both latching mechanisms. The quarters just fit into latch and when I shut the doors they fell over behind the latch. I had a heck of a time getting passenger door open and then I had to get the change out. Its a good story we laugh about now that he has kids but I was not so happy at the time. Maybe I should start teaching the grand daughters how to use coins.
He looks good, now you have to teach him how to get dirty.
He looks to be dressed in a new outfit. If you let him get dirty, you'll have to face his mother.
Here we go again. Something reminds the old man of something else, in this case getting dirty. Mom told me that when I was a little toddler I hated to get dirty. She said one day a couple of years later I came in from play and she remarked what a filthy mess I was. I told her, "Well, you can't have any fun without getting a little dirty." Words to live by.
Mom "Go wash your hands."
Kid "For long sleeves or short sleeves?"
I see no bar oil on the floor? I hope the bibs are USA made Roundhouse.Cute kids and i really like the red ford! Bud.
He’s been a little uneasy about getting dirty hands, but has tended to get over his concerns if we show him how dirty our hands are.
Yesterday, was a new day. He got enough oil drips and black oily crud on his hands and a few errant drops on his knee to learn the value of shop rags. He’s hooked!
Today he helped bang on the sheet metal while we tried to shape the pieces on the Touring.
He even loaded up his Home Depot tool belt and took a turn using his saw. Thankfully, his saw blade was dull.
