You'd think the convention was going now. It's so quiet around here.
Not everyone has the flu!

I'm still in the grief stage for my deceased gassy 15GP22, and spending my time
playing with the most complex boatanchor radios.

I want to see more color sets offered for auction at the convention.

It's quiet everywhere. My work is slow as well. I think everyone's just pissed off about the cold weather and snow . The Facebook TV group's had quite a bit of activity lately though.

Two weeks to go! If you haven't registered yet, please do as soon as possible. We need to notify the caterer about how many people we will have.

If you have items for the auction, please enter them now.

​Hope to see you soon.

One of them has a good* 15GP22 and the other is good* on the red and blue guns.

*Good = I've seen them light up on a chassis and produce a raster and other collectors have tested them with CRT testers and proclaimed the good.

The Convention is only a few days away. On Monday I have to submit the number of attendees to our caterer. If you are coming, and haven't yet registered, PLEASE do now! If you register after I submit the numbers, I can't guarantee we will have food for you.

I hope to see you next weekend.​

Of course I never owned it, but I was glad to help the museum by picking it up from the donor's home in the west Chicago suburbs and transporting it to the museum. I've been having leg and back troubles, but Steve McVoy scrambled and somehow had people waiting at the home when I arrived that were able to move this beast from the basement and into my van.

Your pictures show 5 men carefully removing the huge set from my van (with me standing there in amazement). Surprisingly it took only two older gentlemen to wrestle the set up the stairs and three to get it into my van in Illinois. I hope they aren't still suffering.
