HOMOSASSA, Fla. (FOX 13) - A Vietnam veteran is confined to a wheelchair and has a number of health issues that forced him to stop using his legs. But he still has his hands and they provide a much-needed escape.
"I had a couple of strokes... little strokes they call 'em," Chuck Baker explained to FOX 13. "I take all kinds of pills every day."
Baker doesn't mince words about his reliance of a wheelchair and has excruciating migraine headaches. He said he tried doing thing to keep his mond off the pain, but sometimes it didn't work.
So, he has gone back to his roots: art. When he was younger, Baker used to draw characters of people or sketch landscapes. Now, he makes little pieces of art out of matches or popsicle sticks.
"Keeps me busy, makes me feel good," he explained. "Like I said it's better than doing nothing. Gives me peace of mind, gives me something to do."
Baker would love to sell them, hasn't really found a market to do that commercially.
