  19. Hi, PatSea…thanks for the love! Do you have any favorite retro drinks?

  21. You must have a nice floor, with the tiles as described. The building itself was from a great architecture…I am sure that it's a real beauty!
  22. Hello, Julie…..Things are fine, and I hope that that is the case with you, too! Glad to hear that the diamond proved out. I'd bet that since this is a real diamond, that it's creator would only set ...

  24. Re-in-Vintage….There are some Lehigh Valley videos on YouTube, and I've seen some for sale occasionally. If you access Railroading in Buffalo, there is some audio of an Alco PA-1 Diesel Powered Bla...

  28. Hi, Jewels… Whenever I have doubts about metals and stones of jewelry pieces that I obtain, I have them examined a reputable jewelry shop. The one that I use tests right in front of me, so that the...

  36. Thank you, aghcollect…I appreciate your love of these images….
  37. Yes, my friend, the rails went, too! I think that if the LV had held onto to this unique piece of machinery, it might have not met that fate. I often think about how cool it would be to get the old...
