Above is a link to the Auction listing for the 2nd auction, to be held Sat. Nov. 17th. Lots of great equipment, hope to see some of you there!

Mods: I wasn't sure where this should be placed so move it if you feel this should be placed elsewhere.

Gary:

Since George was one of our original members and revered by everyone who ever met him, I have no problem leaving this here until the auction is done. We can move it then. I am hoping much of his possessions will end up within the Cub Community where I know they will be treasured. I just wish I was close enough to stand a shot at getting something of George's. His carb jig would be a prime example as mine were based on his original.

I see Elvira is still standing guard in the shop! I don't think she has moved far from where she was when I was there. :D
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Yeah, I gotta talk to Marilyn about Elvira. I know of a real fitting recipient for her.

I never completely understood the Elvira connection, but I do know that George really liked her a lot. She has been a permanent fixture in his shop as long as I knew him.

It is always sad to see tools that took a lifetime to accumulate go on the block, but hopefully they will go to a good home (and bring good $$).
