The Sharp Knife and the Sacred Pipe

Late Spring Twenty Twelve

It Italy, home now of the World Journey Sacred Pipe...this was gratis, that is, free. I had to spend several thousand dollars coming and going from Pantelleria to Milan in external costs, like transportation, flying; food. I am very pleased with the doctor who did this work.

(I am a Vietnam Veteran: HHQ, 1st Inf Div, 1/18th, "Swamp Rats" LRP).
