    Saw a cane....err...a saw cane

    The other night my wife and I stopped at a local restaurant for dinner. As we were leaving an elderly gentleman with a cane was approaching and I stopped to hold the door for him. As he got closer I noticed his cane was in the shape of a hand saw. He stopped for a brief moment to thank me and handed me his card, which had a picture of the cane on it. Thought it was not only a clever conversation piece, but a great looking cane, did a nice job on his card as well.

    Veni, vidi, vici?

    The pun probably works better in english
    I cane, I saw, I walked

    The card is pretty cool, I do wonder how comforable the cane is..

    Neat. I make canes just for the 'h' of it. Don't need one. YET! I think I'll make one of those.
