A ToolGirl for Generation Z

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. - Anais Nin

Caileen_teaching_first_classI'm so proud of Caileen Harvey that I could be her overbearing aunt.  At the tender age of 12, Caileen is already teaching woodworking to a gaggle of her peers.   This is an act of bravery because, as we all know, peers are the stubborn demographic that hates getting information or advice from other peers.  Maybe Generation Z is different.  But I'm guessing it's just that Caileen is a great teacher.

Caileen looks like a good candidate for a free copy of your book "How Hard Can it Be?". Well what do you think Aunt Mag? Maybe if you let her borrow one of your cordless drills she may help out with the tree planting. On second thought, give her a new drill with the book. Maybe it will keep her mind off boys for a little while.
