My Mom forwarded me an article that Mr. Hillenkamp was looking for an intern to help with projects for 2 months in his shop in Santa Fe. Of course the excitement of learning from a master how to create on the blacksmith side of the world was intriquing. So, of course I sent off my note of how "I'm his girl" for this once in a lifetime experience. Now I know I'm not the 20 years old with a lifetime ahead of them that could slam that 10lb hammer all day, (they also don't have 3 frayed ligaments in their rotater cuff that I do), but I can definately keep up, especially when you have an expert showing you all the tricks of the trade.. and remember I've raised 6 kids and can run circles around some young kid.
I'm waiting for the confirmation that I'm on my way to Santa Fe for a thrill of a lifetime.. CALL ME HELMUT ~ I'm waiting. :) Wish Me Luck
