  1. Yup - not for most of the romance-loving girly-boys found in GA/SA/BA.

    ComicLink 2018 Show 'em if you got 'em

    You're not kidding. I don't know where all this money comes from, but I clearly took a wrong turn somewhere career-wise. I was only bidding on about 20 things this go around, but everything I was bidding on seems to be ending high.

  7. I'm going to bump this thread one more time, mostly to point out that I have posted my full Marvel, War and DC sale inventory out in the dustbowl known as Mixed. I know a lot of you never venture out there, for fear of cooties, staph, and rubbing elbows with the unwashed masses...., but check it out! Feel free to buy a lot!

    We have a family rat shoot in the desert every year. They're actually Belding's Ground Squirrels. that infest the farmer/rancher's alfalfa pivots. The shooting was tremendous this year, with many burning up a 1000 rounds of .17, .22 or .22 mag per day. It's not always that good of shooting, but it was this year!

    Me and my best friend from elementary school and junior high would pick up cans and bottles for the deposits all the time, in a lot of different places. I remember one turnout below our houses where we discovered a big cache of Juggs and such magazines - it must have been the turnout where people dumped that kind of stuff. Needless to say, we had a nifty cache of filth back at the fort in the woods between our two places. His family also made wine, and looted wrecked trucks up on the local mountain pass. They had a huge room full of burbling, fermenting wine jugs on top of rows of tables with tablecloths. Behind those tablecloths were cases of liquor - every kind a 12 year old could imagine. There was so much of it, what we took wouldn't have been missed. We had a separate "bar" out in an old root wad of a fallen tree, with liquor stuffed in all the little holes and crevices. My friend would also bring wine and schnapps on all the snowmobile trips are family would take together for weekends in the woods. We were pretty sh*tty little boys, from ages 12-14, and then I moved away, as my dad got a new job in separate town. My friend was killed in an auto accident when he was about 25 or so, after a stint in the service. We grew up in a logging town, and a lot of the kids from our class and classes around it died like flies in logging and car accidents and such. One choker cable incident took out five of them in one whack. Now I'm a sh*tty fat little 57 year old, carrying on. My wife paid me the ultimate compliment after one of my drunken Lodge night forays this winter, which was followed by a rough, rough morning - "What? Are you still 13 years old?" Yes maam! I'm never growing up!

    OK - the non-war DC books are up on the bottom of page 1 and top of page 2. Even if the scan is not showing, click on the x-box and the full scan will come up - don't know what is up with that. I will come back through on the DCs and add in what books are yet to be posted. These are DCs yet to be posted. If interested in anything, let me know via pm and I'll bump those to the head of the list for grading, scanning and posting. Looking ahead at my schedule, it may take a few weeks to get these all up.

    I used to take my main squeeze to the dump on Friday nights to shoot skunks. You don't want to be looking around for salvageable stuff after a couple those are popped.
