Subject: [CR]re: BARON and the GANG

I recently exchanged messages with the younger Corpuz and had no issues. From what I remember of the exchange she had been told to sell stuff on Ebay to raise money for College. Those of you who remember back to your High School days might show some empathy. Those of you old timers on the list remember Barons funny posts and his Barn Burner deals from the land of wooden shoes. Baron and consistency have been strangers with long waits and short ones on adjacent deals. Having been to his store when it was in Santa Barbara I can attest to the fact he has only some idea of what he has in inventory with many shelves stacked high. I walked around and picked stuff up and bought some very nice items and as a thanks for visiting he gave me a boxed set of MAFAC brakes. By mail order I usually received extra items (probably as an apology) and remember buying 5 pairs of tires but receiving 10. Baron has always been a great resource of the items we hold dear.He has been quiet on the list for almost a year and I wonder whats up but imagine he and Cecile in a cobweb choked warehouse some where with torches blazing.
