Have to totally agree. When you call, and he knows your voice....... "Hi Mike, it's Fred" and you go from there. Which reminds me, I have a small order. Last one (a biggie) I didn't even ask 'How much?' (+$100.00 USD when the package hit my mail box.)
Edit: Should ask him to have his wife send me some of her choc-0-chip cookies. When you win a prize at their get together the 'prize' is the size of the cookie. How cool is that??
