One think about having friends like Frank is that you don't have to worry about what they might be saying behind your back....  They'll be saying right to your face.

When I called Charlie yesterday morning, he was amazed that you people had bid his birdhouse clear up to $35.  Wait until he sees where it is on Friday when he gets back from his fishing trip.  :o :o 8)

He'll probably start listing them himself. :D

Way ta go folks!

I see the top bidder on the splitting wedge bid again to add a cushion. Dont do us any good though unless someone else bids as well.  Looking at bid history is fun and can tell you quite a bit about the auction.  I still have not seen anything from the fellow that emailed me for more information. I checked his ebay auctions and he is also a collector.

Cowboy Bob (creekcows) bid it up to $35......and that was before the acorn was thrown in for luck!  That man sure does love a good auction!   :)

You used to stay at Hudecks.  Word I have is that it is closed.  Rumor says they were enhancing their income with drugs. RUMOR ONLY!!!  Best call to check before you head up that way.

Got some word on a cool upcoming auction!  We are going to have a special made 48" LogRite cant hook in a week or two. Only two others like it exist in the forum green color. I have one that was sent around last Christmas to be signed, and Sprucebunny has one. Kevin will let me know when it gets back from powder coat!

I'm so DanG pleased with the Birdhouse Ornament auction, I'm gonna throw TWO of my little turned acorns in with it.  Not just one but TWO! 8) ;D

I sure do appreciate everyone that has placed a bid.

I would sure like to have one of your birhouses, Charlie, but I had better not bid.  I still want to be able to communicate with David..  Besides, I have 3 lathes and I can make my own. :'(

$61 will include the two little......well, not really little......turned acorns! 8)   Just to sweeten the pot, for any winning bid over $61, I'll also throw in two of my turned chain pulls (a value of $16). 

Here is an example picture of one of my "Acorn" design chainpulls.  The type of wood will be my choice.

As a matter of fact, Ernie, I have one of them and am about to install the unit in my whining room. :D

Dharlie, you are not playing fair.  :'(  You are trying to bribe me in bidding against David. :'(
