    The Great Pumpkin has arrived!



    Just to let the sender know, if this is where it came from, it has arrived. Post marked Courtenay BC, no return addy.

    There will be a charge coming to you if you own up to sending it. That charge will be for my time taken up with opening the package. Penturning time doesn't come cheaply, I'll have you know!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    It was me, Mack. I thought you needed a break from turning and should try a little carving..... ..... Trick or Treat ...... Glad everything arrived in good order. Nothing like a well-packaged package.

    Hi Cynthia; You're not kidding! That was a well packaged package. And I really do appreciate you thinking of me on the other side of our great country.

    B.C. is part of our country, is it not?It seems so far away.

    Well Mack, you are only roughly 2180 miles from where your package came from. Thats not far. You could do that driving in a couple of days.
    cheers

    Hi Rob; Mapquest shows the distance to be 2891 mi., that's 4625 kms. That's a whole years driving for me, unless this pumpkin can fly!
