Lew, If I ever see a pig fly I believe that I’ll just throw in the towel. Nice work, it’s cute.

Very nice departing gift and one I am sure he will always have a smile for whenever he looks at it and tells the “story” that goes along with it.

First pig to fly, November 4th, 1909. We celebrate it every year at work.

That being said, great parting gift.
