Well...I have have spent a weekend with Eagle and his best friend Lou (DCBluesman) in DC........
....and I've had lunch with you and Charlie in New England.

Both very fond and memorable occasions

You've also been around a bit if you can remember the old original IAP Forum...
I remember all the locals going nuts while we were off air....thought the world had come to an end!!

I talked to Gary Max a few weeks ago. He's the one that got me started turning pens. A few guys not on here are on Facebook, so that helps.

But I miss Hunter27 (Landon) the most. We had some great late night conversations.

For those who may not know, Hunter27, DCBluesman and Eagle have all passed away.

All under 60 years old

Ed, thanks for the clarification, I was thinking that they all just gave up on pen turning. It's sad, they all were still fairly young.

Penman1 is probably the one I miss most with his great advice and wry humor.
