Some years ago a couple of the professors from the U and I took an 
evening body shop class
at a local high school.  First session was in a classroom, this old guy 
sat up front and rambled
on about the shop rules, safety, blah blah blah.  Very dry, boring, we 
were all wondering what
we got ourselves into.

One of the profs with me brought in a fender from his Model A truck.  
After the lecture, which
seemed to go on forever, the gentleman was open to questions.  When Gary 
handed him that
fender, it was quite a transformation - just running his fingers over 
the metal he spouted off
things that he could tell about the piece and what work was needed where 
that were way
beyond our talents.  And he looked much happier doing that than the 
boring old lecture.

It was a good class.
