Not very often do you meet a person who gives so selflessly of their time, money, effort and more that they make you take a step back and think.

Lan Powers and I have been playing Cat & Mouse as far as giving gifts and such to each other since day one, but Lan started it.

Always willing to lend a book, hand down a hakama or weapon, go in with you on a pizza or buy you a drink (Dr. Pepper is choice), Lan is quick to jump at any such opportunity.

A few weeks ago, Lan aquired some wood that he wanted to turn (literally) into Jo's and last night, he presented me with one. Made of hickory, he turned and sanded and worked it until it was a light and straight weapon of choice. He DARED to compare it to the 40 jo I had bought on line, but he fails to realize that nothing on line will ever hold the value that a hand made item has.

SO... thanks go out to Mr. Lan Powers: Fellow Brother Nice Guy and all around good friend!

/cheers Lan!
