editor's note

Lately, it seems my thoughts frequently turn to the liberties and freedoms we enjoy in abundance every day. Although it may not seem like our freedoms are abounding lately – with mandates to wear masks, the cancellation of most industry tradeshows, restrictions on gathering together at home, church, concerts, funerals, and our children sitting behind plexiglass shields in school (if they’re lucky enough to be going to school) – we must choose to remember…remember we are still allowed to choose who we love, what we do in our spare time, when we go on vacation, where we live and how we go about our days. My eight-year-old daughter was recently baptized a member of our church. During the program our good bishop pleaded with her to remember the details of this…

NICK PERNOKAS Nick Pernokas was raised in New England. As a boy he cleaned stalls for a hack stable in return for getting to ride the horses.

pro-carv casing concentrate

Bee Natural’s exciting formulation Pro-Carv will speed up and ease the process of working and tooling leather. Pro-Carv eliminates the need to case leather because of its rapid penetration into even the thickest hides. Mix one-part Pro-Carv concentrate with 10-parts water and apply to leather. Your stamping and carving will take less effort to get the desired depth and burnishing. When forming leather, especially when making boots or shoes, dip the leather into the above formulation for quick, easy and precise forming. When you are through carving the leather, Pro-Carv helps by making the leather easier to clean. Pro-Carv will not harm the leather or its fibers. www.beenaturalleathercare.com…

wayne decker passes

The little boy was waiting for his dad after work that day, a pencil and a piece of paper in his hand. As soon as his father sat down at the kitchen table, the boy asked him to draw a horse. The father obliged him and drew a horse. The little boy studied the picture for a minute and then, with a seven-year-old’s honesty, said, “I can draw a better horse than that.” After a few minutes of concentration, he produced a good sketch of a horse, which he proudly showed his dad. Wayne Decker continued pursuing his love for art for many years after his first sketch. He moved on to sketching the windmills on his grandfather’s farm, but eventually real life stepped in and he would move on to…
