You have an impressive list of hats on that COW list.
You have a conformature... that is cool. now i know I need to come up t San Francisco to see your hats.
Do you know Art Fawcett?
Was trying to find the first mail that referred to Art...wonder if this is the one?
Matt, AndyKev & I are great friends. We had lunch at least once a month while I was in the Bay Area. How long has it been Kev? 10 yrs?
of course Matt asked this question -way- back in 2003....and someone just brought it back from the depths of the archives.
They say ignorance is bliss, but it really just means you failed to learn.
Wow Daizawaguy..didn't notice the date of Matt's post..you really dug up an old one!!
I think my first posts started in Dec '03
Yes. It has been at least 10 years. I think I bought my first "vintage" hat from Art when he had his first shop in Crockett, CA. It was in the old hardware store. He was vacuuming water from the floods .....seeped onto his floor from the wall. Then Art bought an old bank in Rodeo, CA. Complete with a full walk in vault and heavy door.
I helped Art set up his shop in Rodeo, visited his storage shed (at his home) in El Sobrante......hefted some dang heavy machinery up some narrow stairs. We used to do lunch at least twice a month at our favorite Mexican spot a block from his shop. I took Art flying in my Beechcraft and we posted those pictures on the Lounge a long time ago. They are likely deleted.
Then I have seen Art working locally on stone projects....
Dang. A lot goes on in 10 years.
And your call tonight. I missed your call, but my prayers are with you, my dear friend, that the procedure will go well. I will call in a day or so when you are out of the hospital.
Yes..I do need to see you and come up and visit.
I fixed the airplane, and have my flight review scheduled in about two weeks. Then you can pick me up at the Medford Airport. Weather should be great thru October.
I have another week's vacation too.
Hummmmm....should be about 3 hours from Concord, CA.
"Wadda ya hear, wadda ya say?"
9 years, 4 months, 8 days.
Only 234 days!
Apologies Art, was not trying to confuse. I was just trying to dig out a little history from the lounge. Needless to say, our thoughts are with you over this period, and our support. Take care, Sir.
