Remember the good time the first gas bash with my son up in Seattle at Jeff Petersons place. The General Petroleum Museum. My son loved the dog.

I am sure Roger Winchell has found a "Roman" "Duplex" "Erie 50" by now and has his eye on a couple "Others". Hey Rog," IF you hear of any great deals happening down here, let me know before you tell JOHN. May God bless and watch over you. Your friend, Dan.

Jim,

Thanks for posting this reminder...

DB (Dick Bennett) made me feel welcome on this forum, plus I learned a lot from his posts. I think I was part of his grasshopper posse though he did not call me that, instead called me 'a gurl' and a 'decorator' (big insult from him lol) which was true! I love the look of the stuff.

Old Iron (Wendell Groff) was a sweetheart. We had a lot of PM discussions, and I found him very generous in his knowledge and thoughtful in his opinions. Also loved his 'yard art.'

Miss them both...
