Junk Camera
« on: August 12, 2009, 09:18:44 PM »
I got a package today in the mail. First thing I did was look to see if it was my name, (check) then I looked to see where it came from, (uh oh) then I opened it. OK, when Barry (Pitw) asked where i lived, and said he might come through so he could meet me, it was my duty to make sure that if he did, I would be in town so I didn't waste his time driving out of the way for nothing. Apparently he was impressed with a drive through the back roads of eastern Montana, Because the little piece of scrap metal that squeaked, that I gave him was in no way close to the contents of the package. I thought about sending it to FinsNFur to auction off for a split second (before I opened the package), then got greedy, (maybe next time Jim). So I spent a while with camera in hand, burning up a few sets of batteries, trying to give the contents justice.......It will not happen with the equipment I have. I can't even describe it so I will show you the pics and let your imagination try to do it the justice it deserves...........

I have been looking at HuntnCarves works of art for a while now and never quite had the cash to spare.
Thank you Barry. I can't tell you how much I love this call.
sometimes I wonder....is that getting closer..... then it hits me

I had a personal conflict the other day, now I'm not speaking to myself.... I'm getting lonesome

I met the girl of my dreams, I was the man of her dreams too.....she used the term "nightmares" though.

I agree with Jim.  Otherwise that package might have been ticking.   :biggrin:

The bottom line is that it's not about the call.. It's just some wood and plastic.  It's the sentiment that's attached that gives it meaning.  I just can't build that into a call.. Our friend Barry thinks and does alot for all of us.  What more can I say that hasn't already been said?  How about, "Thanks Barry, for making this site alittle nicer for all of us."  Glad you are here, and we're proud to call you a friend!

Dave

PS.  Glad you like Barry's gift  5 shots.

I went down to Glendive and met Art at a service station.  His greeting was to stick out his hand with these wrapped in white cloth.

The 243 shell is for size and Art did not give me that.  The man then used his car to drive me around his country for the next 12 hours or so and got my fishing licence.  He introduced me to hunters from the area and I can honestly say I had a better guide than Pro Outfitter could provide.  He even knows a good spot to eat :innocentwhistle:.  Playing with the different cannon fuses and seeing an AR up close and personal was just icing on the cake.  Man that store bought cannon fuse is way more dependable than my home made stuff, you don't got to run no where near as fast with it.  Taking a day off work to show us the sights was an amazing thing to me and I'm glad he did.
 Art expressed his dislike of going to the call board as he wants them all so I thought I'd see if Dave would help us out and bingo. :yoyo:
  Thanks Dave and Art for treating this piece of Canadian trash like a human :yoyo:

Purdy cool deal Barry!!  :yoyo:

I like the way Dave put things too. No matter how hard you try you just can not build some things in to a call.  So the next best thing is to just make it with your usual pride & patience & let the chips fall where they may!!   :yoyo:

And Art deserves a lot of credit too. Even tho he probably doesn't want to be called out on it he still went out of his way to make Barry & his Family feel Very Welcome.  :yoyo:

Glen

RIP Russ,Blaine,Darrell

Okay already with the praise,  I'm starting to think you might want something :innocentwhistle: .  Actually I'm flattered, BUT
this forum ain't about any one person.  You all and I each contribute in our own way, some can carve, give great info, make a person laugh[or cry], build a call, be there when needed and look forward to the next time we can get on board.  It takes a pretty diverse group of odd balls/great people to do whats been done here.  I unfortunately cannot create anything with my hands but I will admit that those that can will be envied :bowingsmilie:.  Have a great night and enjoy your selves knowing you are cool.

That's a fact Jack :laf: :wink:

Well, I'll take a chance at drawing you ire, but I will say, this whole situation was pretty cool. Everyone seems pretty intrigued to say the least.

I feel so unworthy..... :sad3: I didn't do anything I wouldn't do for most anyone on here. A chance to meet someone from fins' was well worth the 4 hours of work that I missed. :yahoo: :yahoo:
sometimes I wonder....is that getting closer..... then it hits me

I had a personal conflict the other day, now I'm not speaking to myself.... I'm getting lonesome

I met the girl of my dreams, I was the man of her dreams too.....she used the term "nightmares" though.
