The Guy I Never Met

    Always love your stories, even on Thanksgiving Day!
    Wish we could have met and shared coffee, when I was much younger.
    Keep up the great work !

    Hello, I looked everywhere on the net and couldn't find Tidd-Bits, so left a message with B&G asking about it. I'll keep you all informed on my progress, if any in getting a copy. Well written stories are just priceless!

    Yours, Larry

    Hmmm, It would be nice if B&G let a digital copy go up in the library here... I'll let you know their thoughts when I have 'em!

    Yours, Larry

    Another Tidd-Bit, https://patents.google.com/patent/US2395697A/en We now know that Ed was also Edwin and was an inventor in his own right! :)
