whoa!!!!!! someone help me up off the floor....I think I'm having a "big one" :lol:

So glad to see you again. Just yesterday I thought about your safety when I saw on national news the helicopter crash up the street from you.

Every time I see an exotic piece of wood I think of you. Thrift stores are good sources for uke wood as you know.

The thrift stores locally have almost bare shelves...they must be exporting out of state to your area :mrgreen: Have no fear, they will be perking up soon with the arrival of spring. whooooo!!!! :D

Shiny brass stoves are too nice to keep in boxes, need to have some display shelves for them like what RR has. As I hear it, he'll have more shelves available this spring so sell him your new found gem :o

Keep us informed on your weekly thrift store finds. Please!!!! :mrgreen:

RG, What's the Uke count up to now? All this time passed, you must have hundreds made.

I paid more than you think I paid for it(bit the bullet),more than I've EVER paid before..double or triple!..but..had to have it..It's not used.I sold some stuff the day before so had the cash in my pocket..for a little while :roll: ..
I hadn't seen a decent stove in years..figured I better buy one.

I know that feeling well :D

It will be interesting to see how you display it on your mantel. Would be nice to send us a photo once it's up there. :D

I don't have a mantel...I have a wood stove..remember?
It'll be displayed from the file cabinet..only to a select "stovie" few..along with all my other "Precious" pieces(picture Gollum). :twisted:
