Re: veterans

Veterans got a shout out from the pulpit this morning! The lectionary Gospel reading was the widow's mite, so it was an easy connection to make. The willingness to give everything you have...

Re: Mastercraft

One other thing I have to say.....

Most serious pipe smokers will have a pipe or 2 that came through the hands of Mastercraft and probably never realized it.
