This is an attempt to locate and meet two of the landlords in Alexandria,la. My name is David Hicks ,and my handle on the forum is pmdavid . I would like to be able meet Mr Steve Arnold ,and Mr. Virgil McCoy. I would like to be able to get together and talk martins and check out your set ups. We share the same interests and live in the same town. It would be interesting to meet you guys as I’m sure you are more experienced than I in the art of Martin landlording. If you would be interested in a new Martin friend contact me through my email and we can get together. Look forward to hearing from one or both of you guys!
