Bonnie Childers, aka the Buddinman? Yes I know him well, he has send me a few things. I probably still has his address and ph.no. The last time I talked to him was about his all time favorite grafting knife.

Laaz, just got of the phone talking to the Buddinman, he is doing good, getting old 88 years and not doing too much, still in good spirits. I ask him if he remember Laaz, said vaguely but remember Millet, i guess he remember grafting for him.

Welcome back Joe! It looks like we're getting most of the old gang back together again :D  Also it's good to see you back at it too Laaz. Where's Hoosierquilt, Patty and BabyBlue? Benny had some interesting posts. Citrus Growers Forum lives on!!

G, I talked to Patty. She said she is taking care of two grandchildren and doesn't have a lot of time. Hopefully she drops in from time to time.

Spoke with Bonnie. Slowing down some. I did tell him where everyone is and that he would be welcome here. His citrus savy is remarkable..he is 88 years into it. Hope he visits us
