Each year I receive a gift from Makers Mark (which, by the way, is not a small family run business). The gifts used to be promotional goods– wrapping paper, ribbon and so forth. Lately, though, they’ve been items of clothing for our ancient concrete friends.
“Thank you, kind sirs at Makers Mark. God bless us everyone!”
