    What a generous gentleman!

    "I have some spalted hackberry pen blanks too if any one wants a few.."

    The above statement was posted in another thread by Chuck Ellis on the 30th Jan. this year. I thought I could use a few as he stated. It's apparent to me his definition of a few and my definition of a few are miles apart.

    I'm thinking a few 4 or 5. They will fit in a bubble envelope, $5.00 or so to mail.

    His definition of a few is more like 25 spalted hackberry with at least a dozen or more of assorted blanks. The cost of mailing $30.00 nearly. I was overwhelmed with his generosity, both of the blanks and the mailing cost.

    We discussed his generosity over a phone call last evening. Something needs to be done here to even things up. Stay tuned!!

    Thanks so much once again, Chuck! You are a fine gentleman. I'm probably not saying anything that a lot of you don't know now. This post is in no way meant to embarrass you. I just had to say it personally and on this forum.

    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!

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Kudos to both of you for exemplifying what I feel is the basis for this forum's success; its members.

    Way to go, Chuck. And Mack, Larry's right...what comes around goes around, and I'm guessing it was your turn to be up the receiving end of that equation this time.

    Very nice of both of you. This is a very cool place to hang out. Feels like home.
