Old Pipe Wrench or Grasshopper ?

Have I ever told you that my son loves to weld?  He is actually very good at it.  The talent comes in handy with all of the old farm equipment that he collects. ;)  Lately, his welding has taken on an artistic twist.  My Farmerboy is churning out grasshoppers... swarms of them.  These "recycled hoppers" are made from old pipe wrenches that he purchased at a local auction last year.  The John Deere colored one in the center is for Farmergirl's Grandpa's birthday.  My son made one for him last year, but apparently Grandma confiscated it as a decoration for inside the house! :)  

I never know what I'll find crawling around my house, when I get home from work! LOL
