A nice story about an abacus

The other day a lady came into the shop with this cute little abacus. She has used the abacus for years at the local swimming pool, where kids can use it to keep track of how many laps they swim. Understandably the wood has weathered somewhat in these circumstances, so she asked me to furbish it up.
