  1. Willie!!!!!!!!! 'Great to see you!!! ​Hey!! The old fishbowl is still spinnin'!!!
  2. Scott gets blamed for a lot of things.... Some for good reason, some not... But, this isn't Scott's style. Bob is a known person / nutcase. If he sent threatening, or vulgar messages through ebay, it should definitely be reported!! Though, it would be a shame to ruin the income of a poor Czech starving artist!! (sic)
  3. I was also convinced that CallBob was fake... He sounds like a less knowledgeable Tom Reed. I figured it was Tom acting stupid. But, alas..... I've heard that he is quite real from people who actually know him!! Sometimes, it's really scary when we find out who we share the Earth with!! I have a couple Penn. Dutch marbles... And, I've seen a few more... If that's fake, it's exceptional and we're in trouble. It also has an exceptional color combo. PS.... I may have done some ballsy things in my life.... But, I sure as hell wouldn't threaten Lloyd in the back woods of Pennsylvania!!! @ Lloyd
  4. Oh John.... I'm sending you the best "Marble Karma" I can muster... Hang in, Hon!! And... What Lloyd said..... What a beautiful little boy!!!
  5. As long as we're all reporting private messages, I'll add one to the mix... Actually, there were 2, but only one was really vulgar. At the time, I didn't bother with it.... I'd already written him off an idiot. I'm a big girl, I've heard worse things!!! LOL (Hell, I've said worse things!!! LOL) The marble in the avatar is what I've always called a "Pennsylvania Dutch." Not because it really has any connection to Pennsylvania Dutch. That's just a name somebody (Probably CallBob) started calling them, for loss of a better name... To my knowledge, there isn't any confirmed identity of origin... But, that one sure looks authentic to me (I'm sure CBob will be relieved to hear that!! )
  6. Runnin' later than expected this week.... In the mail today!! Don't sweat the return address!!!! Pass the kindness on. We need it to keep the world an awesome place!!
  7. Bob shouldn't have to do that. I've got all the MCSA newsletters here, from at least the past 10-15 years... Don't you remember which ones your articles were in??
  8. New York mighta looked like after midnight from the Chicago area..... I apologize, Bob... I didn't realize you were published!!! That makes SUCH a difference!! Please tell.... Which articles are yours? I'd love to go back and read them.
  9. One of the coolest people on the face of the Earth!!!
  10. I've received these from a few people... I'm assuming it gets into your address book when you click the link? (Though how would that happen in Alan's case, unless, maybe Gary or Cheryl are checking the mail?) If you find out your email is effected, how do you clear it? I've also gotten a couple of these through Facebook.... It's just like the Old Wild West, here online!!! LOL
  11. Just for the record, Bob (Block) I never doubted your opinion. I was backin' you up!! I should have differentiated between the 2 names, for clarity....
  12. Wow..... I guess Bob tells time the way he sees marbles... Unless NY has changed time zones in the last 24 hours... Honey... i don't need to be jealous... Check the reference credits on some of your books.
  13. Hey Steph, I guess I probably did have reserves about discussing the fine points of how to tell when a marble isn't what the general marble community refers to as a "Scenic China." And, yes... For those reasons... But hey... We can't keep everything secret, either. This marble isn't fake... It's a real marble!! It's china (I presume) and it has a scenic scene painted on it... But, it sure isn't anything near what I would refer to as a "Scenic China..." Bob, you can call it a scenic china, you can call it a Christmas Miracle, or you could call it George... You can ask Bob, you can ask Hansel, you can ask Paul Baumann (I've got his number around here, somewhere...) But, I'll tell ya, I sure as hell am glad I'm NOT the one with more than 25 bucks in it. 'Sorry, man.... But, there's just no way to wish it any different.
  14. Mmmmm, I got one, too..... Kinda creepy and really sad....
  15. Cool Steve!!! Maybe my memory isn't as bad as I thought!!! LOL If you can use it, send me a message with your address... I tried to PM you, but it wouldn't go through.
  16. Hey Folks!!! Long time, no talk to.... I apologize!! I've just gotten so wrapped up in other stuff... (Animal rescue, on the public side. Clearing out and selling my Dad's house on the family side... He's fine, we just got him to move closer.) Somewhere, back in time, there was someone collecting small pressed glass animals that were made by one of the marble companies... Duffy (Steve) was that you? If not, do you remember who? (My memory sucks sometimes!! LOL) I came across a swan... The figure can be seen in a completed ebay auction #350631510574... If this is one of the correct figures, I'd be happy to send it out to whoever it was that was collecting them. I may not be around much, but my heart is always here!! 'Have a great New Year!!! 'Love ya!! Sue
  17. geez, he should just give it a proper burial........poor thing ( I can't get the quote thing to work!! ) ROFLMAO!! My thoughts exactly!! Griff is right though... This is kinda sad. Anyone who buys and sells gets their best education from the mistakes they make. I hope they don't have a lot invested....
  18. Awesome!! :-D Highlighting the print will make it easier to read for those who have trouble with it!!
  19. I know I've met Art. But, I didn't know him well... I'm so sorry we've lost another great collector... My heart goes out to his family and all who loved him. That big marble show in the sky just keeps getting better and better!!
  20. I think the empasis on perfection is so sad... Sure, a marble that's been beat to hell..... Well, that's to bad!! But, a small chip? If we looked at all historical artifacts that way, the Coliseum, Tower of Pisa and Stonehenge would all have been replaced with condos by now!! Sure, marbles aren't that old or rare.... But, appreciating each one's beauty is far more important than discarding it for being used the way it was intended.... As long as it is price effective.... So, what would be a good price?
  21. Thanks Edna!!! I just wish there was a way we could turn love into a cure....
  22. Thanks David!! Yup, I've learned a lot about my camera!! LOL There's always a silver lining!!
  23. There's still some super good prices on auctions closing tonight... Marble_Alley I've already sent $1110.00 to Alan, via Cheryl and his Dad, Roger.... I'm getting another envelope together today for $1120.75... I'd love to think there might be another $2000 in these auctions before they are all done. The next-to-last lot of 10 goes up tonight, as the current lot closes.... Sunday should be the last lot.... I never want to crop another circle picture again..... EVER!! My first wish was that Alan make it to the end of these auctions... If there's just a little space left for an "Up day" or two or three.... If he gets "The Urge for Goin'" We'll have to let him go........
