My Grandfather ("Gramps") was renowned for making handmade scooters.
This photo was taken in the 1960's.
All the kids in the neighborhood wanted one of those scooters.
I wish I still had mine.
I do have a kid's table and chairs that he made, and a small stool.
I used to have this awesome side table, but my mom gave it to the Goodwill in some fit of insanity when I lived in the Bay Area.
I can't believe she didn't know I wanted to keep it.
It was painted a sea green color, and was sort-of Eames-inspired amoeba shapes in tiers.
But those scooters...they were the best ever.
