Thursday's Transglobal Informal Challenge: Catch a Smile
This is what had us all smiling: Some of you will remember that 2 weeks ago I had a reunion with old friends. That was when these images were taken. See Here
In yesterday's posting I told you about us learning of Philip Simmons while on a tour of Charleston. Click Here for a recap of Mr. Simmons's background.
As the tour bus rolled down the street that Mr. Simmons lived on he, Mr. Simmons, got out of a SUV and walked toward his house. We asked the tour guide to stop the bus. There were smiles all around.
Mr. Simmons is 94 years-old and no longer makes ornamental ironworks. Meet Joseph Prinkle. He is Mr. Simmon's nephew. Mr. Simmons started teaching Joesph to work with ornamental wrought iron when Joe was 13 years-old. Now it is Joesph who makes the Simmons Gates. Joesph in turn is teaching another family member, who is in his teens, to work with the wrought iron.
