Thanks Oki ... yah, at this point-in-time my cash seems to be going towards other things (perhaps/hopefully I'll get back into it in my "later years"?)

Thanks Jay ... yah, we're looking forward to eventually moving back out west to BC

Cheers, gang

Hey Steve,

I have to say you collection is (was actually) outstanding.
I can ensure you (I know for sure) most of your beauty found good homes  :)

And what a nice place you have there in British Columbia, it might deserve a visit !! (BC was on the short list  for our yearly trip this year..... ;D)

Take care my friend

Thanks for the coin atta-boys, gang (I always appreciate feed-back)

Cucumbor, we are really looking forward to eventually moving back west, but for the moment the BC place is still merely a carrot being hung-out in front of us (we'll have to see what the next year brings ... hopefully we'll be able to pull the plug and escape the great white north?)

Cheers, fellas

Oh, here are two more additions (these were added during the past 10 days while I was in the hospital battling pulmonary emboli) ...

Sadly, I am now at home, but I am on oxygen ... hopefully I can continue to progress and eventually lose the oxygen-leash!?

... anyway ...

Here are the two new additions to my gallery:
