Goings-on in Grandpa's shed

This is Grandpa ...
VJ's pop ... little man's grandad (and partner-in-crime!).
Work on the next boot house is coming along very slowly ... !
View the other one here
He always has lots of 'honey do's' from Grandma that take up his time
("honey do this", "honey do that").
But he does love to tinker in his shed, 
whenever he can,
quietly pottering ...
listening to music, 
whistling while he works,
surrounded by little friends ...
and curios.
Sometimes getting sidetracked ...
... and starting a 'pot house' instead!

Little man will cherish his Grandpa always - what a lovely relationship they have. I should imagine little man will also want a "man shed" too one day.

How wonderful. Every grandpa should have a shed where he can tinker with whatever takes his fancy. Your dad is so amazingly creative, what a wonderful grandad he must be!

What an inspiration - if only every boy could have a Grandpa like that!
I wonder if that is a WW2 German POW dog I can see among the treasures?
