Deadman Meet 2012

Post by Ron Percell »

Got back from Larry White "Deadman" Meet and had a great time.

Took some time on the last day to do a video walk through for those who couldn't make it out to the San Francisco Bay area for one of the best Gilder's Meets going.
here's the link:http://letterheadsignsupply.com/letterh ... rhead-2012

Thank you Larry!

Thanks for posting the video... one thing the panning and my rapid eye movement trying to take in all that it could almost threw me into a epileptic fit. :shock:
Sure I paint thing for my amusement and then offer them for sale. A brushslinger could whither en die from lack of creativity in this plastic town my horse threw a shoe in. :shock:

The darn horse wouldn't stand still. Sounds like you need to make the journey west.

Ron don't blame it on the Hoss.... they only pick up on our Q's. So you must of been jittery. Would love to make the trip out West... but who's gonna watch my herd will I'm gone.

Well....now that was a good video of the whole town of Machine!! Have a couple of questions tho Ron..... Did a certain scallywag Cornishman show up smoking cigars and toting a shotgun? And who won the game of cards between William Blake (not the poet) and Sally?.....did one or the other shoot the winner? Tell 'em all Percy says hi and thanks for the tour. Gotta visit this town before I'm done.......

Great video Ron. Larry's glass work and carpentry are both equally impressive...a very talented dude.

How many fellows attended the meet?
Is there any chance that someone could post a group photo?
Did anyone take picutres of the projects that were worked on?

It is soooooo sad that more ladies don't partake in this gorgeus art.....

Keep those videos coming...always wanting more!!!!
Thanks for sharing all the eye candy.

I'll second that!
I believe there is no shame in failure. Rather, the shame lies in the loss of all the things that might have been, but for the fear of failure.

Thanks Dan.
Looks like another fun get together, quite the goatee you are sporting. :)
Hope you all had a great time, every year I view the group picture with a bit of a nostalgic feeling. Maybe some day I'll make it back.
