Welcome Aboard!

Welcome Aboard!

I am a 78 year old, Naval Academy graduate, husband, father of four children and retired Navy helicopter pilot.  As of June 8, 2020 my wife and I have been married 52 years.  I created this business 27 years ago and have served well over 1,000 customers. I am really delighted with how well my work has been received over the years.  Now I offer very few products but they fulfill my original intent of providing gifts that will be handed down from one generation to the next.

I have decided to devote the remainder of my productive life to help Saint Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital raise funds for their on-going research.  My wife and I know the sorrow of losing a child.  I can’t change the past; but I can and am taking steps to help a sick child.

If you would like to join me in helping Saint Jude’s please consider this:  All proceeds from all sales  on this site, will go to Saint Jude’s.  I have also made it possible to make a direct gift to Saint Judes on this website via the new link below.
