I bought my first Bubba Stick when I was inspecting Seminary, in Indiana in 1998. At that time it was made by a fellow in Gainsville, TX. It was a wonderful cane and was quite the complementary accessory for a person with arthritis. The main feature that the hame did not hurt my gripping hand made it my signature accessory. During a trip to Oklahoma, from where I had moved after nearly 30 years, I lost my beloved cane due to my absent mindedness and upon returning to seminary immediately purchased another which is a feature in my graduation photos. Subsequent to my move to Iowa, the stick broke and after buffing the hame and adding a solid oak dowel for the shaft, it continued in life. I added little plaques from places I have traveled, and it looked quite the thing. Again due to absent mindedness my wonderful cane is lost. If you find it please contact me, but I have purchased a new one, because, though I use a walker in public, at home and visiting people the walker is unwieldy so the Bubba Stick still is needed.
Thank you for continuing to make the stick, and tell Love's they need to keep up their stocks for people like me who would forget their heads if they weren't screwed on tight.
