I have an old book sitting here in front of me:

Copyright, 1910, 1912, 1915, 1917, 1919, 1922, 1925, 1930
Pretty neat. The cover page is signed by my grandfather:
WmB.George304 Philidelphia Amarillo Tex Phone 2240
He started and ran a casting shop in Amarillo with the kids working too, until he went to San Antonio and Lackland, from which he retired.
He was an unparalled mechanic and loved old cars. His latest were a 1940 Cadillac and a 1960 BMW.
That's George, as in King George. Don't if anyone else does, but I kinda' miss that old man. Rave over, return to your regularly schedulded programs.
