Review

Old Washburn is a happy farmer on Grandfather Mountain. He's got a cow, a pig, some chickens, a cabin, and a whittling knife. One by one he loses everything except his whittling kinfe, but with his incurable optimism, he keeps on whittling and being happy. Eventually he regains everything he had and has a wonderful time doing it.
