Pitchy

So a number of us knew and enjoyed a fellow poster Pitchy/Lenn from another forum.  Does anyone have any news or updates on ol' Pitch?

I've thought about  o'l Lenny myself on occasion,  I used to correspond with him via Email from time to time a few years ago but alas, I don't have his email address any longer.

I always enjoyed Lenn and his creations, especially his tin boats, and have always hoped he got things settled in his life and would show back up someday.
Regards,
Larry

It's been about 2 1/2 maybe 3 years since I visited Lenn. Always wanted to take my two Bowman 234's back up to his track and run with his pair.

I too miss Lenn and his wonderful posts and fantastic creations, but I know him to be a rather private person, no matter what a huge presence he seemed to be when posting.

Would certainly be wonderful to have him in our ranks once again, so I suppose that would be something well worth wishing for here in this venue!

Miss ya Pard !!!

He is definitely an interesting character, you could never get tired of following his posts, he seems to like to take breaks so maybe he will pop up again, certainly hope so.

Well howdy fellers, just checked in for a look Jan told me about the forum a while back but i`ve been suffering from prostate issues and haven`t been messing with steam so figured no sense in registering but since you fine fellows asked about me here i am .
I`ve been busy with some off topic stuff like hay trolleys and haying equipment and making some other cool stuff.
Will join in and see if i can contribute to the board which looks real nice Gil.  :)

Hey thanks again guys, made my day so many of you remember me.  :)

It`s been a rough year with the prostate, last six months it moved into my hip and after sitting i can`t walk without a cane but after i walk a while it gets better.
I don`t believe its cancer i went to the doc last year and he said i had chronic prostatitis
and infection, put me on antibiotics and it got better but now has flared up again.
I made a door to somewhere, gettin old and ready to go.
