About two weeks ago while I was at work (truck driver) I got a phone call, my house was burning down. I got there and it was a horrible thing to see, I ran next door and made sure my children were ok, they were fine, I was so glad they were ok thats all that matters to me. No one was hurt, however the pets did not make it two dogs a parrot and a guinea pig. Now my almost decade long to bring together transformer collection? also gone, I watched the smoke pouring out of the vents of the house, smelled the plastic burning it sucked so bad. I have been a member of this site for years, this has been my way to unwind for so long, I don't know if I can ever get back into collecting like i used to be ever again though, Im just really bummed out about my collection, I guess it is really hitting me now that it's gone. Everything that matters is ok, my family is ok we started over housewise and all and are fine, but only fellow collectors know how I feel about my collection, I was told "it was just a bunch of toys".
