I did the painting, but the person that worked the hardest is my 84 yr old papa Leonard Neff. He had a bright idea that he wanted to grow gourds along with his other farming crops so that he and I could make peoples days by giving people these gourds. He grows them, cleans them, and all these months worth of work I get to finish them by adding some paint. This is such a special project to share with him. I know he will get a Big Tickle just to see our names on your web page. He counted his gourds he grew this year is 402. --Gigi Mayernick, Girard IL
