I once got a 6 figure sale with all correspondence on a While You Were Out pad that people still discuss.

Yeah, exactly, you didn't think anyone would let me sell anything worth real money did you ?

It must have taken Selke and the Rocket months to negotiate that deal.

Not at all! :shakehead
Seriously though, being able to sell something worth $100K or more on a notepad is something you don't see often I guess. :nod:

...but when I try to make hand-written documents in unsharpened pencil on my Ziggy pad, people give me **** for it. Good grief.



OK it was crayon.



...OK it was the washable kind of crayon. But I felt the naughty doodle at the side was a nice touch.

Awesome piece of history:handclap:
