Dave Osburn is the retired Blenko former foreman? Right?
When did he open Osburn glass?
Does Rick Blenko work there? I adored Rick Blenko and have been trying to discover where he is.
He should be heading some business developement team for the state or feds.
Remarkable man with exceptional PR skills.

Sol, my comment on that will make post later today so go back and see what I think. I think that you already know how I feel. I would like to know how much money people have gave and donate to Haiti. Would it pay off the ties we owe to God? Or what the federal government has us in debt for? Now! God does say you need to take care of your own before your neighbors. Not help your neighbors and then yourself. So to help or not to help depends on if you think that your family is taken care of and you have more than enough so you will give to the country of Haiti. Read the ten commandments on this matter. I think of the single parents in this country, those raised without a Dad or Mom that could use the love and help of someone who has the more. I being one of those kids, who could of been what first female predisent or a dancer or a doctor of medicine. I would of loved to have just been a school teacher, a window decorator, born with a gold spoon in my mouth where I could of just been where ever when ever people needed. I did however raise with the help of his DAD another woman's son. So to give is to love when God tells you too for know explanable reason. I use to think play the lottery and what would you do with 120 million? Buy The BLENKO COMPANY and expand. So LOL! It is Monday and the sun is shining and I am smiling thinking of someone saying she has lost it again. I have not been here for afew days and I am getting caught up.To all Are you a frog or a prince/ess? Must also remember to visit the Milton blog. Sounds interesting, gossip of others is finding out without asking. The hearts are nice and the younger generation could give to school teachers. Nice for anyone you would like to say love you. Not I love you romance, just love ya. The vase is a nice color only I would question a dozen roses, maybe sweetheart roses, need to see that first. Wonder if those glass hearts are like glass slippers? One special one that would turn a frog into a prince. Enough of me writing my thoughts. Ground Hog day tomorrow! Will he see his shadow? We still have six weeks anyway. Margie how much snow do you all have? Just sick of the cold Canadian air. Think I would like to go fishing and hiking there. God Bless Roxie

I am waiting to see Lemley turn up at Osburns. This is exciting can you imagine what those 2 guys could do together, then they could get Rick Blenko for PR. I got a forecast that in a year half the men at Blenko will be at Osburns.

GO TELL ALICE:
DAVE OSBURN DID NOT RETIRE AFTER SOME MANAGEMENT CHANGES HE LEFT AND IMMEDIATELY OPEN OSBURN GLASS.
TWO DAYS AFTER LEAVING BLENKO HE WAS OPEN AND ACCEPTING ODERS HE GROWS MONTHLY. THE SHOP HAS MANY TABLES AND ROOMS FILLED WITH GLASS ALSO HE WILL DO SPECIAL ORDER OF MOST ANYTHING AND IN THE COLOR YOU WANT.
TO MY KNOWLEDGE RICK BLENKO IS PURSUING OTHER AVENUES HE IS A HIGHLY SKILLED MADER DIRECTOR OF FILMS, HE IS AN EXCELLENT MOTIVATION SPEAKER.
WE ALSO ADMIRE RICK BLENKO AND THINK IN TIME PEOPLE WILL REALIZE HE DID WHAT HE COULD, WITH LIMITED ACCESS AND ABILITY AND HE INHERITED A ZILLION DOLLAR PROBLEM.
THE POND IS POLUTED< THE GROUND IS POLLUTED" THEIR IS MAJOR DEBT AND EMPLOYEE UNREST NOT A GOOD PICTURE AND NOW THE SITUATION HAS BEEN MADE MUCH WORSE AND PUBLIC SENTIMENT IS NO LONGER WITH BLENKO.
SOME OF YOU HILARY FOR ONE WOULD BE PRO BLENKO REGARDLESS BUT THE COMMUNITY AND OUR STATE FELT THE CLOSURE SALE WAS A SHAM.
SIGN ME ANNONYMOUS WHEN I SIGN MY NAME THE POST DOES NOT PUBLISH.
PERHAPS I LIKE FOUR LETTER WORD HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM THE BLOG.

Osburn is worth the trip Chitrakahn.
You have been there, I'm certain of this, its the small frame building near blenko glass.

Roxie
I come back to read your comments, you should be a stand up commedian.
Or the Paula Dean who doesn't cook.

DrAnnu said...

If Osburn is former Blenko then having more Osburn makes good sense for me.
More photos please.
I found information on Osburn on the blenko4collectors and your blenkoproject where else should I search?
Also I want to read about Charlie Gibson another former Blenko who had his own factory, any others who after Blenko went on their own?
History of people is thrilling to me.
