“Dear PoP,

I came across this walking stick outside of our McLean Gardens apartment, just at an entrance to a little nook of Rock Creek Park. These two carvings were on either side–I wondered if you had any idea of the story behind it, or if your readers might. (The carved text reads “Uncle Dan’s #24 / Use It Then Leave It”)”

Wow, that’s awesome. Anyone know the story behind this?
