Thanks my friend. I am hopeful that things will improve and I can pick up this hobby once more. Ouch about the signed Laserdisc set! Well you see we (well most of us mortals anyways. you seem to be immune) splurge in good times and tighten our belts and sell off what we can in bad times. My wife rightly pointed out that we were struggling and yet I was sitting on a sizable gold mine of collector toys. So the right thing to do is remedy that and do EVERYTHING I could to make sure my family is still provided for.
