While traveling along the I&M Canal, workers had some free time. Often, they used pocket knives to whittle items, like a switch, to make the time move faster. They were "whittling their time away."
Find the canal worker who might have enough time to whittle while he worked.
Have you ever used a pocket knife? What would you whittle?
