Acy, Tookie and Doug

On May 15, Jeff had another ambitious day, riding 40 miles with 5,700 ft. of climbing.  Stopping to catch his breath in Elkhorn, KY, he was offered a cold bottle of water and invited to Acy's Tinkering Shop by three gentlemen sitting out front.  Acy is the owner and tinkerer.  He is 55 years old and has lived in Elkhorn all his life.  He was working on everything from lawn mowers to pickup trucks when Jeff happened by.  Tookie's name stuck when he was just two or three years old.  One day when his Mama put him on the counter, he pointed to a cookie jar and said "Tookie."   He is in "sales," peddling his wares at flea markets and thrift stores.  Doug said the Lord brought him to Elkhorn and he feels blessed to live there.  He has worked in coal all his life.
