I re-established Sat 8/29 thus far (since June 2013) I have made 72 canes with varying degrees of fun (some frustration) but thoroughly enjoyed them all once completed - for there simply are no two alike. But it brought me greater joy to confirm for the first time I have given away 57 of them.

It truly is "better to give than receive."

IF all goes as planned, today, Mon 9/7, I'll "gift" another cane - this, ironically will be MY Cane #58 - Hickory, which I finished in Feb 2015, and will be the 58th cane I've given away.

I LOVE giving away things.

Especially these canes.

I hope that I never need a cane, but I hope to follow your example and make more walking sticks for family and old Marine brothers with failing health. One of my teammates in Vietnam has M.S., and he's now at the top of my list. Hoping to acquire the perfect stick, and medallions will be ordered this week.

Mission accomplished! :cool:

History: I bought a miter saw at Sears in Feb, with 2 year added warranty, and fairly recently discovered a "problem" - I could not change the blades by simply following the owner's manual instructions, for the saw had a defect. So after attempting to resolve the issue via Craftsman chat x 6 and telephone calls x3, I went back to the store, found the man who sold me the original and he really went to bat for me.

Result: I now have a NEW miter saw and it appears that blade change problem has been corrected and so show my appreciation I gave Cane #58 to "Jim"

He was very pleased.

Again I say, try gifting - giving stuff away - it brings great joy, I promise.
