A funny spinning wheel story
I have an old spinning wheel that's just for decoration - it falls apart if you look at it funny. The wheel is about 1 foot off the ground. Last Saturday, we had friends over, one of whom has a 2-year-old son. Josiah went up to the spinning wheel, *gently* took the wheel in his hands, and went "Vrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmm!" Then I treadled a bit for him, and he thought that was the coolest thing ever.
