  2. Those terra cotta tiles have a nice patina to them.
  3. Fantastic collection.
  4. Thanks AG.
  5. Thanks for appreciating my picture Hedgewalker. A competition sounds interesting. I've put up all my good stuff, but I like looking at other people's finds.
  6. I had a picture of my grandson looking out from between T-Rex's teeth.

  12. I just got back from Tulum where I did some snorkeling in a couple of cenotes with my grandkids, not far from Belize. Interesting mix of fresh and salt water fish.

  20. Roycroftbooksfromme1, thanks for your interest in my project. Check out my new post.

  30. That sounds good to me kanuckster. The spoke wheels must weigh 80 lbs each. Thanks for looking kanuckster and fifties50s.
  31. Thanks Walksoftly. Its a quiet little clatter with an occasional chug, very different then an old open pipe Harley.
  32. Check the Banjo Hangout. Some of the members are Gibson specialists.
  33. I'm having trouble getting the pictures from my phone that are in my computer onto this site.
