Hermann Quake, who was born in Germany, has long time ties to the Waynedale community. Hermann had already completed a toolmaker's apprenticeship before leaving Germany.

Remember how the hot August days make their steamy way through the hills, punctuated by the cry of the early fall insects that seem to sing all the day long?
