Last year Gabi and Adi had just finished school and were preparing for their compulsory military service. This year they celebrated their 19th birthday as soldiers in the Israel Defence Forces (IDF). Even though there was a possibility that they would not be home on their birthday, their Mum still wanted a customised card for each of them, just like they receive each year.
Mum asked me to show Gabi in his olive green army uniform. He enjoys playing snooker so, after a lesson from Mister Handmade in Israel about the differences between snooker, pool and billiards, I showed him standing by a snooker table, cue in hand.
