John Hands must have been a fun person to be around. I imagine him having guests over for dinner, standing over them at the head of his table before prayer, saying in a stentorian voice, “Please. . . let us John Hands”. I get a chuckle every time, as I imagine he did too! A must have for any pun lover. Forgive the upside down picture of the reverse.
