Well ya all know of the "Wake up and get back at it" swap we been having on our forum lately.
Well Friday i finished my swap project and took a drive to Mack Camerons place to deliver it. Turned out Darren was looking out for me when he answered my call to have another Canadian as a swap buddy. Nothing against you guys in the USA just wanted to visit someone local.
Anyhow Mack and i got through chewing the fat and chatting and i got to see his gorgous pens again. There i was drooling over the whole bunch slobering like a dog (yeah nice dog ya got there Mack lots of character).
He was surprized to find out I was his swap buddy but i knew the old saying "the shoemaker never has shoes" which was the origin of my decision for the swap item i made.
Well time came to leave and i wish all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, shook old Macks hand and got into the car. Then i am just about to close the door and old Mack says to me Eh got something for ya.
What does he pop in my hand .....well one of his fine writing instruments. Now this aint the first one of Macks Pens i come to have. No he gave me one after i sent him a piece of Osage Orange to turn. He made two and gave one to me.
But when he put one of these in my hands, well i would be lying if i did not admit to having a lump in my throat and a tear in my eyes.
I think many of you know how much i love my newly adopted homeland and the flag says it all. I dont think there is a gift i will recieve this Christmas to top this one. I had wanted one of these Pens. Have been thinking of when the budget would allow the purchase of one. But when Mack gave me one well i was over the moon.
Mack I cant express how delighted i am. The pen means a great deal to me as does our friendship. Thanks a ton. Sorry it took me a few days to get this up here.
Just for clarrification for those not familiar with this pen kit, the maple leaf in this kit is laser cut out of the round and in the raw its not dyed red. I dont know what magic Mack applies but boy if you see the kit and then hold the finished item there is real skill involved here.
Mack i hope and wish you sell many many more.
