    Found at a local thrift store....
    For several year now, most of the local Goodwills have been pricing stuff at close to what you can buy new for and now one of the other thrift stores is following suit.  While I understand they want to maximize what they get, what they get was free and needs to be priced realistically.  I usually donate any nascar kits I get to area church rummage sales.  Let some kid build it and grab for a buck or two.

    I worked with a lady years ago that told me her then husband admitted in their divorce proceedings he bought her a yellow one so he knew where she was if he was out with his girlfriend.......Ouch!

    Their reunion tour was one of the last concerts I went to.  Great show!!
    (Combination of life a.k.a kids and ticket prices closing in on a car payment stopped my concert attendance)

    This is why the wife doesn't shop with me......
    I usually hit the local thrift stores for animal crates (donate to rural shelters) and other miscellaneous oddities.  This afternoon, this was sitting near the front of the store and all I could think was "someone really was an organ donor".

    I wasn't looking for a head on a platter but I expected more of an investigation than I get from my ten year old looking for his school backpack that he just stepped over.

    This is why people don't take the time to get involved!!!!!!!!!
    My father's nursing home violated HIPAA when they told his brothers that he had passed away.  I explicitly told the administration NO ONE is to be told but they spilled the beans less than 24 hours after this directive.  I filed a complaint with the Department of Health & Human Services who took their time before reaching out asking for me to prove I was Dad's care giver so I e-mailed the POA.  In less than a week I received a letter today that they 'investigated' and determined there was a violation but will defer to the nursing home's to resolve the matter through their technical resistance.  So basically their own system breaks down to allow them to violate Federal law and they get to investigate themselves?  Seriously???
    It was noted if another violation comes up at this home, it MAY get investigated.  WTH....are they on double secret probation like the movie Animal House???

    Did they get another round of shipment?  One store in town got Ed Roth Surfite kits and one out of down (Dayton) got Dodge L700 tanker kits?

    Jo-Han (68) Chrysler 300 engine
    I bought one at the Louisville show but its missing both the 440 and the 390.  Any suggestions for currently available 'close enough' of either engine?

    Went to the Ohio Valley show in Louisville today....came home with more projects that i didn't need.  Great show especially for a first year!  When the organizer had to give up the table at the entrance to accommodate more show entries, it was a good show!
    I buy towels, blankets and pet carriers at thrift stores and garage sales to donate when I got out of town to shows either near the show or a rural area along the way in communities that down. The KY Humane Society was hosting an off site adoption event at the Dixie Feeder less than a mile away so for those saw all that odd stuff in the back of the Pontiac G8, that was its destination.  I do that in the name of my two dogs who have passed and the four rescues who are spoiled rotten.

    They usually get the shipment just in time for Christmas and have just a handful left by New Years.  Last year, I got the blue Challenger Concept, yellow Ford GT and the snakeskin green VIper.  They raised the price but still less than $14!

    We haven't had a membership for several years but re-upped late last year.  I knew they got a shipment of 1/18 Maisto's around Thanksgiving but we were at a local store today and they have two large boxes.  Was kinda hoping for the Ford GT but both boxes were well picked.
