CommentsCaravaned with Bill. Originally was going to take the bike, but both Kyrie and Ian clamored for being able to go, and after warning them about 6 hours in the car, 4 hours at the show Friday and 6 hours at the show Saturday and 6 hours in the car back home, they still wanted to go so I caved. And I'm glad I did. The number of people who came up and said how good they were was astounding. And Graham Barnes had lots of fun with them at his table. Was definitely a worthwhile experience. From Dan Ling: I told you about that at the show that day ........ Kyrie bought something purple off my table after she said that you gave her the $20. Ian was standing there also and that's when he said that. ---- I thought it was hilarious and still do !!! ------ I told my wife last night when I was telling her about the dot/dot on ICON that hopefully you got it. I was on the computer when it was posted but just got to the For Sale folder too late. Le Mar 15, 2013 , Daniel Ling a crit : I told you about that at the show that day ........

Yeah, they are a little protective of their money, though Ian does seem to like spending it. Rolly Polly insulators -- from the time they were wee little ones, that's what radio strains have been. Always seemed to be the one they wanted to play with from my collection! Le Mar 15, 2013 1:30 PM, Daniel Ling a crit : > > What were strains called ? Rolly pollys or something ? --- I might put some of those in the box for the youngin' too. --- I still laugh thinking about the Martinsburg regional a couple years ago......
