Well Thurmond, looks like you've got company. I'm 43 and got 16 of 'em right! So
guess that's a rut-roh for me too.....now if they'd only bring back Cherry Mash....

I am still looking for a 96 index gear for my Lee OK machine.  I think that
any of the Lee index plates can be modified on my lathe to fit.

Thanks.

Larry Davis

Hello All-

Just got back in from touring Florida for the past week, and I wanted to
send out my thanks to everyonefor their great suggestions for extracting
my stuck dop. I finally wound up sending it to a specialist who's taking
care of it and I should be back in business inside of a week or so. What
a great bunch of folks!

Thanks-

TODAY'S FUNNY ~

Subject: joke for the newsletter

From: "Ernie Hawes" <ehawes7@comcast.net>

Thurmond, here's a joke that looks like it was made for the newsletter.

A woman's husband dies. He had $20,000 to his name.

After everything is done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her
closest friend that there is no money left.  The friend says, "How can
that be? You told me he had $20,000 a few days before he died. How could
you be broke?"

The widow says, "Well, the funeral cost me $6,500. And of course, I had
to make the obligatory donation for the church and the organist and all.
That was $500 and I spent another $500 for the wake, food and drinks,
you know. The rest went for the memorial stone."

The friend says, "$12,500 for the memorial stone? My goodness, how big was
it?"

The widow says, "Three carats."
