Wonderful statement about Joey

A wonderful statement about Joey! Thanks Dean.

Do you know Julie Hudy, mom to Joey Hudy of "Look What Joey's Making"?  He exhibits his famous marshmallow shooter at Maker Faires.  We met Joey and Julie at the Detroit MF (we are spreading the word all over Michigan about MF, because I have many relatives all over Michigan).  We had a great talk about Joey's exploits.  He is quite the electronics fanatic.  Joey is also quite charismatic, and has started an interesting email friendship with my 15 year old nephew Nathanael who lives in Michigan.  Nathanael has Asperger's Syndrome, and everybody assumed that he would never be very mechanical.  But to heck with that, we introduced Nathanael to Joey in Detroit, and Joey inspired Nathanael to start building marshmallow shooters and various other projects.  I think Maker Faire, and Joey's influence, might have actually turned Nathanael onto what we hope will be a love of Making....
