Great Gift

My daughter wanted to give her 84 year old grandfather a memorable gift for Christmas. She knew of these walking sticks from a recent trip to Ireland. Delivery was in the nick of time, 24th of December, so we put a red ribbon on it and placed by the tree. Dad (Granddad) certainly was pleased and I saw him trying it out in the house.

Great looking piece of work, compliments to the good folk involved in our purchase!
