I didn't have any money but I would go to trade shows, arrowhead shows and gun shows and I had a little display where I would put 25 or 30 bronzes on a table hoping somebody would come and by one of my bronzes. They never did that. But I remember one time this old gun trader, those gun traders can be somebody else. They're a bunch of old souls a lot of those guys. So I had a little bronze that he liked and he picked the thing up and he said, god, this is not cast very well is it? You know, this is a terrible a bronze. Who made this ugly looking thing and words like that and he put it down and wandered on off. And the show was like a three day show so the next day he did the same thing, came back, told me what a terrible bronze that was. But I mean I figured out this guy wants that bronze pretty bad. So Sunday everybody's packing up to go home including me. I saw this guy make the turn and come down toward me so I took that bronze away quick and I put it under my table. Mr. Fenn where is that ugly old bronze of that horse that I was looking at yesterday? I said, sir, you told me what a terrible bronze that was and you finally talked me into it so I sold it to some guy for ten bucks. And it nearly killed him because the price on it was 150 bucks and the thought that I had sold that thing out from under him for 10 bucks. You know, once in a while I do something right. I got a lot of reward by not selling that guy that bronze. I still remember how wonderful I felt because he was trying to beat me to death on that price.
