    Gloat maybe?

    So I get a call from an old and dear friend this afternoon who has the annoying problem of being stinking rich. I made him a pen several years ago. Today he went into his Accountant's office to grab some $$ and signed his stuff with his pen. I have to be in Chico (Northern Ca) next week with 5 samples. He want between 95 & 115 pens for his staff. Holy crap, good thing I have a little time on my hands. You never know about these things, but it sure would be a nice change. Prayers and crossed fingers would be great!

    You may have to sub-contract out all that work. Nice score. Hope it works out.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I uh, never actually heard you were back home from the second visit to the hospital. I take it you are feeling better?
    100 pens, that is a few hours work. Allen would be done by breakfast though!
    Go get 'em if you feel up to it.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
