Couldn't read this post without commenting. My Dad and my Grandpa were plasterers before my dad switched to farming. Grandpa retired, and dad went farming full time. He cleaned up and stored his tools. After a good run of farming, he had to retire for some serious health reasons. Was moving off the farm, and bought a half-finished house (divorce sale). Two of us sons and another good friend hung the plaster board, and my Dad, who was starting to recover, gave us lessons in how to plaster. He was still darn good, and was an excellent teacher. The three of us learned a lot, and although we started by doing the closets, it was a professional job when we were done. He did give away his tools to the three of us when the job was done. Said he was sure he was never going to need them again. All three of us ended up doing some remodeling, plastering some additions, etc, and some of us taught our kids the skills. I still have my set of tools, and plan to pass them down to a worthy grandkid. My favorite tool is a mixing hoe that was originally my Grandpa's. I think those of us that are still "on the right side of the sod", are here for a reason, or several reasons. Likely you'll get a chance to pass on some of your skills, even if you don't know who to pass them on to just yet. Get your strength back, for when the teacher is ready, the student appears. I still got some teaching to do yet, too.
Thanks for a great post. I could go on all night about the great memories your photos brought back!
