Thanks, Stickgrappler!

We've exchanged emails in the past (i've posted on another forum as "the stewed owl") and sent you some photocopies of articles on JHR and Bando, and always enjoyed all the archives on your website.

Grateful to hear from you again, as well.

This will sound lame... but I saw "Mick C." and my kneejerk reaction was, "I wonder how 'TheStewedOwl' is doing... dayum lost contact with him... I wonder if "Mick C." is him"? Nah, what are the odds?!?!?!"

Are you still on the UG? I sometimes check there but I've less time at work to surf around all the forums I used to visit regularly, mainly lurk here and hang at Ausgepicht's forum. If you have time, check Spladdle out.

And many moons ago when you sent me that BB JHR article, little did we know thatBB would make their 1st issue through their December 2004 issues available free via Google Books LOL

Very truly yours,

~sg

Grateful for hooking up with old friends whom I've lost contact with!
