Re: [Killietalk] oldest Killie in the hobby?
Thanks for the explanation as to what happened with your N&R
experience. I had heard a lot of rumors about it but I appreciate
your relating that story. I'm sorry it ended so badly. You can see
where the N&R finally ended up and still no accounting from 2003 through 2006.
Just another link in the chain.
