    an odd thing showed up the other day....

    the other day my dad gave me a call, and said that there was a heavy box that showed up in the mail with your name on it. i picked it up on my way to work friday, and it was heavy. when i got home, i saw that it came from a remote place in michigan, and it was from larry. upon opening it, i found it was a decent (much larger than expected) sized chunk of chocolate! larry, you are indeed a good egg!

    thanks larry!!

    Don't eat that all at once - you might get a tummyache.

    You know, it sure would put a big smile on Larry's face if someone made a bandsaw box out of one of these blanks instead, wouldn't it?

    Definitely MY kind of chocolate, too!

    Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    Mark is right on the ball. Why didn't I think of that?

    Course, I didn't get chocolate. (What flavor is Flamed Box Elder?)

    Aloha, Tony
