Mick - are these the same couple of die cases I’ve been asking you about for the last few years … ?

N.G. Yes, but there has been the little matter of structural modifications to My *Glory hole* via some Fire Damage, so everything has been *On Hold* for a bit.!!

The literature/ephemera etc, is just in.! and is being perused right now… Mick.

Ha! Excellent. Well, glad your glory hole is in full working order now. Can you let me know what your large comp diecases are when you get a sec?
