OMG.   What happened to me?   One minute I was a Cars diecast fanatic, then next I vanished and dropped this board overnight.   Ugh!!!

My apologies to all.  I did find quite a few messages just now that I never replied to.  Some almost 2 years old.  :(


My sad little tale of why I left can be summed up by just saying that when life throws you lemons, sometimes you have to get 2 and 3 jobs at once to keep the little ones fed.  Throw in being evicted from our house this past summer as the icing on the cake, and you can perhaps see why things in Spring of 2009 got ugly, stayed ugly, then got much worse.   


I am not into Cars diecasts anymore, though my kids still have their huge collection.   My old partner is still in the business of Cars trading / buying / selling, and he has expanded into dozens of toy brands and genres now - if you are interested I can see about any inventory he has.  If you may recall, he generally has the really hard to find stuff as he has untold amounts of international connections.   Just let me know and I will see what I can do.


Much love to all, and for those who never knew me on here, well, hello!


Peace...

Hi Ron,

Are you still in the Houston area? Sure enjoyed all the wallpapers you made back then!

Sad to hear what's happened, but welcome back! I am somewhat new to posting, but I've been reading back when this was EZBoard. I just now saw this, and, sure loved those wallpapers. But now the images are blank and gone now that I looked back at that thread. Could you please re-upload the pictures.

Thanks.

P.S. I don't think I'm the first to say this, but I love your avatar.

Wow a nearly 8 year old thread...my last post here way back when. haha.  Wow how have things changed.

Sorry I never got back to anyone.   As for those wallpapers, they are long gone.  Lost among many other things in a computer crash.  Sorry!
