He was most gracious to both of us.

We both picked up some great little items at his store.

I purchased a few machines from him and I think he was quite shocked when I wanted to buy a brand new Riccar. He is a fantastic man, and Iím proud to have made a friend in him.

He is a great guy.

I first met him at The VCCC convention here.
Joe got some tools, a "tilted Connie", and, finally completed an Electrolux set.
I got some tools, lenses, wands, and some Convertible jackets.

I called him earlier in the day

to see if it was OK to drop in.  I find it's usually better to warn people when I'm coming..

 I brought him some cookies.  He had them at my house, and I brought him some I had made the day prior.


I got some floor tools as well as a blue handle grip in addition to my other purchases.

   Joe and I will return  in a few weeks, I'm sure.

I wondered if Chuck still had his vacuum store. Miss him, he was a great member of the VCCC.

Chuck has a sweet-looking model 150!

Sounds like an awesome MM, John. I enjoy reading about your collection & hobby adventures.

very kind.
I used to host lots of mini meets. The ones I'd do now are much different.
