Thanks for the offer Michael, and welcome to the forum. Yes these old rods have some kind of magical magnetism. I'm trying to absorb as much knowledge about their history as I can. I've started reading up on them.
I also noticed your LSU Tigers avatar! Go Tigers! I'm from the Alexandria/Pineville area myself, and my husband is from Keithville just outside of Shreveport. We've been living up here since December '91. My husbands job transferred us here. It's been great. But being born and raised in Louisiana..well you just can't get that out of your soul.
