If You Have Ever Ridden on an Airplane, Driven at Night, or Put on Your Brakes…

Or cleaned your home, or eaten a Thomas English Muffin anywhere north of Atlanta and east of the Mississippi, learned to play a brass instrument, twirled a baton, taken an Alka Seltzer or owned a recreational vehicle or pop-up camper, you have supported a local business in Elkhart County, Indiana.  And we thank you for that support!

Sharon, thank you so very much!  I love it too! I have a character sketch of an agent in a suit (which I don't ever wear) with a cape on...and sunglasses.
