    NO thank you, for taking the time to read and understand the mad ramblings of an aging shiny metal geek like me!!! If any of my words helped in any way, then the Fl sun has not totally warped my brain and I can say thank you to YOU!!!

    The newer folks in any hobby is what keeps the oldtimers young at heart, some of us may be a tad pin jaded, but if you stand next to a new person whom is getting that"oh boy oh boy boooy, " rush of a grail trade or a much loved and sought after pin, you get a rememberence of why you started this hobby, and once again the old are young again!!!

    Thank you for being OUR PONce de Leon!!!!

    Great points that need to be at the top for all traders to look at periodically. Not only helps the newbie, but will remind the old timer how to communicate more effectively without sounding or becoming so burned out.

    I've never been to a pin swap event, and now that i no longer live in California it will probably be rather difficult to do so, but on the off-chance it does, would it be best to bring a more experienced pin trader with me to help guide me during an event?
