thanks grandpa Buddy!

Grandpa Buddy is the go-to guy for college projects!

SPSU first year student project: Pumpkin Launch Extravaganza - to be launched at the Hallowed Grounds of the Soaring Squash, Thursday October 24, 2013.

The college team designed the launcher, made a list of materials and came to the family junkyard collection of all things construction related to gather supplies, learn from Buddy, use the workshop tools, build the project, and try out the finished product.

A quick weekend trip home for us to help the team from SPSU try to make a pumpkin launcher. Lots of work going on, 2 days worth, but late Sunday afternoon we had a flying pumpkin! Woohoo!

Lots more pictures and a couple of videos HERE!

Things are certainly never dull around your house. At this rate, grandpa will never get to retire. But I imagine he likes it that way.
