Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How Many States Have You Been To?
« on: May 9, 2003, 01:15 PM »
Dale,
part of it is related to my dad's job (insurance salesman) and my job.  I get to go to conferences in many places in the US.  Wisconsin was the most recent.  This October I'll be in Ohio and plan on drifting down to Louisville, home of my favorite college basketball team.  

My dad sold life insurance and one of the perks of his job was various conferences based on sales performance.  Most of those Caribbean spots and lots of the US destinations are attributable to family travel.  Minnesota and North Dakota relate mostly to drinking ;).  The Western States are primarily a result of skiing.  

I'd really like to see much more of the Eastern US but at this point don't have much reason to go out that way.  

Aus and points in that direction are due to a little 6 month vacation.  

Then there's the age advantage ;)

Due apologies Cory, 3.  I had forgotten what the chase caps were.  I knew you had the two Jango caps, bust and full.  

A quick perusal of ebay shows these have come down considerably since last summer.  The boxed sets are available with BINs of around 89-99, making them about $2 a piece.  I had paid $3 last year and several individual caps are available for around $1.50 each.  

I need to find mine (stored in a bin ::)) and inventory them.  I think I have nearly 30 or so, but if it's less, getting the boxed set might be the better option to complete the set.

Well, that SHOULD do it.



4-2.  Still about 2 minutes left, but I'm almost ready to call it.

4:54 left, 3-2.  If you ain't brave enough to watch, I'm not going to tell you who's winning.  Maybe if you ask nice :P

edit, Roloson injured, Vancouver gets a penalty and the classy ::) Vancouver fans are chanting B*** S***  Yeah, nice quality touch there.  Your guy gets the penalty, injures the goalie in the process and you lack class.  If I wasn't before, I'm cheering for the Wild now.

Mine's supposed to be $185 Cdn shipped.  But I must confess to some degree of nervousness about it coming in.  I ordered it from John's collectibles out in BC.  Communication has been great and every time I ask, he says no problem if I want the deposit refunded.  I'd like to support him, but do not want to miss out. :(

This was the major cross over occuring in all the X books back in the mid-late 80's?  If so, I have probably all the original issues involved.  If not, I am remembering something else.  It was tough for me to finish.  Titles were hot at the time and I went to Australia for a stretch (where they hand wrote the price on the cover in ink).  My comic story put aside many of the titles for me, but not all.  

Would certainly make an interesting movie.

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh.  Had to be KB ::)

Nice fine print too.  Save $20 but get a $15 surcharge for large package.  

I ordered mine from a Canadian shop, whose order got delayed.  Not expecting mine until 3rd quarter.  What do I do? ???

Another advantage to living in the US.  The interest on your mortgage is tax deductible.  Mine is not ??? >:(
