The Rest of the Story...
Where the heck did you get a name like's Hawk's Perch? While building my
house one day I went up to the second floor, which had only end rafters
on it, and saw a hawk perched on the point of a rafter. Hence my house
is Hawk's Perch, and my company is Hawk's Perch Technical Writing.
