Day # 186 - The Saw Sharpener Comes to Pinecraft

Today when I biked to the park I saw a sign at the park entrance that a "Saw Sharpener" is at the park. Sure enough they came in a big travel trailer with a trailer attached behind, which is the Saw Shop. At first I didn't pay attention to them as I spotted my sister and niece but after a while I looked back and turned around and started shooting photos. None of them was aware of me or my bike for the longest time, so I took the liberty to shoot to my heart's content. 

These two men watched and asked questions while the sharpener sharpened a pocket knife and here is demonstrating that the blade of that knife is as sharp as a razor blade. 
I don't know who this couple is except they are German Baptist that can't talk German and live in Ohio, just across from the Indiana state line. 


  1. Yes, he is of German Baptist faith. His name is Melvin Cook. Thanks to a friend who grew up in that church.

  2. Katie, Melvin is my first cousin. He and his wife Ella, are German Baptist Brethren, which is the church I grew up in. :)

  3. Katie, I was wondering if I could get a copy of this picture, if you would email it to me. My cousin, Melvin, passed away last night. He is my mother's oldest nephew.
