I got back this evening from a going away party for a friend, to whom I presented a piece of earned leather.
It was a long night, a drive to and from Lexington, a ceremony there. I have to be up again bright and early.
So this will be very short.
I am pleased to note that I had tears in people’s eyes during the ceremony. I always say that if I can’t make someone cry during a leather presentation, I didn’t do it right.
Giving a piece of earned leather makes someone a part of my leather family.
I have given eight pieces of leather in my life. I will give another piece at GLLA this year, and I expect to give two more pieces at the munch in November.
My family grows.
