The New Zipper Is Here, The New Zipper Is Here!

9 feet of glorious #10 Aluminum Zipper

I feel like Steve Martin in the Jerk when he gets his phone book with his name in it. It feels like such a small dumb thing, but seeing the mail man show up with my new LENZIP #10 Aluminum zipper for my convertible top cover made my day! I thought to myself.. self.. there are so many more things to be happy about. Like two huge checks in the mail for the company.. Cash flow is good.. But NO, tossed those aside for the accountant to deal with. I HAD MY LONG AWAITED LEN ZIP #10 Aluminum zipper. Two to be exact. Ya never know.. Yes I am a zipper hoarder. I can say it made my day. Now I ask.. Was it worth it? You bet.. Come on, ya have to admit, that you get gitty when a correct cleat shows up all nice and fresh.. The search and discovery are fun, and finding the company in business was a bonus. Now when I am zipping about on the water, I can look at my top cover and say. That’s one nice original zipper! And I can snoot my nose up at all the plastic zipper people who just let there top guy buy whatever he wanted. By the way, whats your guys name? My guy wont return my calls anymore.. I wonder what that’s all about?

    Instead of giving those checks to your accountant, perhaps you would have been better served handing them over to a therapist.

    Matt you really need to keep the lids on those cans of varnish and ventilate more. Now step outside and take some slow deep breaths. Maybe take the zippers for a long walk around the lake and show them to everyone you meet. You can even take the extra one and have it embedded into a favorite tie. Now that would look cool next time on CNN.

    Like the others I too have a hard time getting quite this excited about zippers. However, my brand new set of centek mufflers for my Lyman arrived yesterday and I was quite happy. Enjoy!

    Matt, it’s people like you, who pay attention to details, that I want for my doctor, car repairman, boat restorer & brain surgeon. We need you & your kin, hang in there!

    Matt, It’s a little scary to say… but I get it. I get excited when the ups guy drops off my weekly shipment from Jamestown Distributors, just vanish and stuff. My 16 year old daughter jokes that I’m like a kid at Christmas time.

    It’s all about the journey……

    Matt, thinking back to those Dora photo shoots in Suzy, if there was ever a man who needed an Opti-Grab, it’s you. Bet the designers at Chris-Craft never thought a 24′ Sportsman could pull 4G’s. But damned if you did. That wasn’t wake off the back. Those were vapor trails!
