"From here, nearly everywhere

Adelia and I are Hesston College alumni, and the school has a trademark phrase: Start here, go everywhere.  I've often thought I should hang the same or similar slogan over my shop door.  Because that's exactly what takes place with the puppets and figures built within the four walls of that small building.  They start there, and from there, go more places than I would ever have imagined.  Just recently I started a photo listing of figures sold and where they went.  Even I am amazed as I watch the listing advance.  You can see them in the margin of the page: http://mrdsfigures.blogspot.com/

    In seminary, some of us were dubbed "WTGA". You could say the same of your figures -"willing to go anywhere"! You certainly have a good portion of the world covered with those you send out. May they continue for many years to come!

    Hesston! In about 1968 I was in a 50-performances touring production of "Androcles and the Lion," in the role of Androcles, and we PLAYED Hesston,KS in the theatre at the college. It's a small world.
