The truth of that hit home this week when I read an article in our local paper about a fellow who has repaired for me a chainsaw, lawnmower, and ATV, and also sharpened chainsaw and lawnmower blades from time to time. He seemed to be a sharp fellow and I heard tidbits about him from time to time but never the whole story . . .
That's the beginning of a story written a little over a year ago about Dr Robert Flute. I thought about him the other day when the local paper wrote of the fellow who has recently purchased the business that his wife thought she could run, but apparently found it beyond her capacity.
Click this link to go to the story, and I encourage you to click the link to allow you to read the newspaper article by Steve Dzubay, editor of our paper, about midway through the story. Dr. Flute was an amazing man, and I wish I could say I knew him better. But I can't.
