Um, There's a Spitfire in the Living Room...

My old organ teach (took lessons from 1968-1978) was a pretty English lass who married a Yank and came over here, but as she used to work in a Spitfire factory and was proud of her English heritage, she had an awesome painting of a Spitfire in her living room. This guys got that beat by a long shot!...

Re: My best Cane

Nice one Lenn -- I like it!

I found a similar one years ago while deer hunting -- went back on Sunday to get it. It's neat and has "character", like yours does, but it's just a tad undersized to make a good cane.
