Hi Jennera,

I was surprised that you hadn't taken the offer earlier so that is good that you're in.

I think is time that Rebecca become a member and post things herself, there is nothing wrong with you doing that for her but I believe, some of us have been waiting in being able to interact directly with Rebecca so, tell her that, please...!

She is going to be happy with all the blanks you have been gathering, for her Christmas present, let's see if she can recognise the ones from me...!

Thank you for the ice cream "donation" most appreciated.

Have a safe and enjoyable Festive Season...!

Cheers
George

Thank you for doing this and Merry Christmas!


Jennifer

I know that everybody is busy with activities related to the approaching Christmas and that is a good thing, however, I ask you guys and gals to take a few minutes of your time and contemplate in being part of this "Christmas offer" I'm offering to all IAP members.

I don't expect to have 1,000 members to be in this but, I'm expecting a lot more than the 21 I have now. Some folks may be wondering if I have sufficient blanks for a couple of dozens of members and I can tell you that my whole pen blank finished stock is in excess of 10,000 a slow progress from the 12 years I start making them, the wood stock yet to be processed will yield 100,000 pen blanks or more, this is, if the wood borer doesn't spoil more than usual and if I will be alive long enough to process them all, I honestly doubt.

So that you know, from the original number of pen blanks processed from the green or semi-dry logs that are put to dry in my normal "drying towers" (approx. 100 blanks each) one would be surprised with the number that endup being unusable, I have had recently a few towers marked from 2012 to 2014 and that 2 of the not a single blank could be saved in average 50% or less endup being in usable state, the rest is just discarded as kindly for some people that get large bags of it from us, Merissa normaly get's the "tips" from those bags, a little cash that is always welcome.

So, what is this all about it and why and I writing this long post (as always )...?

Well, I was and still expect a lot more members to accept my Chrismas surprise of 10 raw pen blanks in exchange for the AU$16.00 for the shipping.

As I demonstrated, I'm not going to run out of blanks in a hurry so, go ahead and get your name in...!

Cheers
George

Generous offer on your part George.
For those who are hesitating, here's the current exchange rate between $USD & $AUD.
Right now, it's only $12 USD.
XE: Convert AUD/USD. Australia Dollar to United States Dollar

Thank's for that Herb, some people may haven't realised that and it certainly makes difference paying with a stronger dollar.

And now that I've got you here, why haven't you yet put your name in...?

Cheers
George
