??? Did Mr. Chapman always do the molds? Once years ago I met the mold maker and he was ancient - Mr. Chapman looks middle age.
Do you know the names of the other mold makers?
Can you find out?

Mountain Rita seems extremely rude most every day. It continuously makes me not want to read the blog.

I am in agreement with Annonymous Mountain Rita is often offensive.
Hillary can you block her?

Dr.BOB said...

Would it be possible to have additonal info and photos of other molds?
Just a suggestion?
I understand Blenko doesn't share frequently - please ask.

Mountain Rita
I don't think you are rude.
Bi polar somedays or a few too many bloody marys but never rude.
