a little scrapper

Here is my oldest taking a nap with his pay for his days work.  I proposed to him that if he stripped all the copper wire of my junk bobbins he could then take it to the scrap yard.  I haven't put it on a scale but it feels like about 75 pounds and at $2 a pound its not a bad days work for an 11 year old.


  1. wire weighed 62 pounds and the boy 68... they gave me $2.30 a pound. If he wouldn't have wiggled so much in the contractors bag they never would have found him.
