Sorry that I missed you. Jerrys is only a short way away from my house.
A little story about them: They are the largest privately owned Ace
hardware store in the US. When Home Despot decided to open a store
here, they announced plans to open 3 stores. Although they didn't say
so, the plan was to open more than they needed to run the competition
out of business. Well, Jerrys beat them to the punch, and opened a
second store, and Home Despot only has their one. Hooray for the little
guy. Maybe we can meet the next time you come to town. I grew up in NW
Missery (thats just north of you), and the only thing that I miss from
there are the lightening bugs.
I did run into Richard Rombold (he is a turner also) at a local show,
and he told me that he offered you the use of his shop. You are welcome
at my place too. Hope to see you some time,
