    Wow, that is a nice piece - you'll notice if it's missing...:happy:

    and btw, I may have missed the back story, but what does this...
    mean? I hope it didn't turn into a "dryer" coin! (Sorry for the "modern" coin terminology. :D)

    Good to hear from you again, DR. Your posts and presence have been messed. As for your choice of pocket puck (or is that pucket piece?) - simply awesome! :)

    Love the big fat Ptolemy!

    Say, you've kinda got the Kevin Bacon look goin' on lately.

    Anyone fancy a "six degrees of Deacon Ray" game?* ;)
