Laurie, the boys (Sparky, Percy and Quinn) and I wish you all a safe Thanksgiving. Laurie and I will go out for our dinner as it just the two of us. I will watch the parades in the morning and relax as I get ready with many more new items for EBay.
We had a great time at 31st Annual Toy soldier Show in Hackensack, New Jersey. We saw old friends and met William “Billy” Leroy of “Baggage Battles”. I am working on the photos and the article on the show and I hope to have it up soon.
We are back from a short vacation to Las Vegas, where Laurie went to see the World Championship of the PBR Bull Riding. While Laurie was at the PBR, I did other things including see an old collector friend, I have not seen in 20 years. I will be telling you about various things from our trip including stopping at Pawn Stars (no we did not see anyone from the show.)
This is a great show with lots of Plastic and metal figures. We will be there walking around so we hope to see you there.

Flea Market Season
Despite the rains we have had, I have been finding a number of good items for the collection and resale. I enjoy going out to the flea markets and not only finding items but also listen to the people. I have gotten some very interesting material.
Plastic Warrior Show Report is Up
The Plastic warrior show is up. sorry there are not more pictures , I decided not to carry the heavy camera. I did some pictures with the phone some turn out good others did not which were the show pictures. The video camera I am trying to find a cord to transfer the pictures and my small camera would not take the chip.
I have a report on Convent Garden, some other things we did plus the Birmingham Toy Show. One interesting thing we did was eat with our very good friend Peter Evans at a Turkish restaurant called Gallipoli. The food was very good.
