Father and son Ash and Thomas Hooley are regular Saturday morners who have taken to turning like, the proverbial ducks to water  – or woodpeckers to a tree?.   Thomas has an Auntie Kate who lives in Yakima, Washington State and recently had an operation. Sally, his mother, decided to fly out this Friday and surprise her – Thomas, being a turner and she a favourite Aunt , he just had to send her a present of a lidded box he had turned but not finished.  Ok, long story short…As Thomas couldn’t get down to finish it, Sally brought it in on Thursday and Dave *White Knight” Fligg and his  “squire” Steve Vause trimmed the base, and sanded and polished it…It now resides on the other side of the  big pond….

  The moral of this story….
