What modesty, I’m referring to a very good friend whose picture was on the front page of this paper’s Oct. 14, 2021 issue. That person is Bob Ayala and he’s demonstrating carving to members of the Bellaire Conservation Club. In printed tex alongside the picture of Bob it says he’s an amateur of this art. When it can be seen by the carvings on the table in front of him. This is not the work of an amateur, but of a seasoned professional.
