opa the net maker

Opa (Grandad) Hanus is our villages most skilled net maker and fixer. He strings the nets between coconut palms and works for hours with intent focus.  He is 77 years old and still has acute eye sight and a spring in his step.  He is however missing most of his teeth due to a life of chewing betel nut, so is rather hard to understand. I once asked him what he thinks about while he is weaving.  He replied, "nothing."  I can just about believe it.
