Why don't YOU get the 3-D printer and fiddle about with it in front of him,
and maybe ask for tech support, and see if he gets sucked in. Alternatively,
maybe you'll like it yourself. :)


Micki: (-: It's a very good idea and I considered it. It might work. But the thing 
is, I've fallen in love with the ukulele this year, and am busy with that. I bought 
him a build-it-yourself ukulele about four years ago, and it never got built. So, 
considering my track record in this sort of crafty-based thing, I may have to re-
evaluate my gift-giving abilities. 

The thing is, he likes building houses; he doesn't like doing the fiddly finishing 
work. We really can't afford another half-finished house . . . . I think he ran out 
of barns and outbuildings a couple of years ago, which may be contributing to his 
unhappy restlessness. 

(-: Maybe in a couple of years. The thought crosses my mind that I could build a 
ukulele if I learn how to do it!
