    Discovered a lot of music there.
    Yet another reason to love Bellevue.

    too funny. i owned a house for a few years first time i lived in TX, and dad always reminded me about my collection back home. Been in apts ever since, so have that excuse. If they end up forcing them on me, would probably fleabay the whole works too. tempted to see what they'd be worth. have to believe it's one of the most extensive collections out there right now.

    only reason i've gotten away with it is my old room sits idle collecting dust. is surprising now that you mention it though.

    Re: What do you collect?

    Same way my family works, Kev. When you are sixteen, you start paying rent. At eighteen, you receive the only birth

    The same rules applied to anything else. Like new clothes or shoes? You may get hand-me-downs if you are fortunate (Being the last of four brothers, I was beyond that hope) or you have to buy your own. I also never developed any sort of food I do not like, and will gladly eat whatever is prepared, as my Mum did not make special meals for anyone.

    "Allergy? Better grow out of it."

    "Showed up to dinner late? What dinner?"

    Accompany all of this with that we were expected to do our school ever day (Usually multiple days worth of school at once, which is why we all graduated at least a year early), do our chores, which included shoveling all of the porches and the entire drive (We owned many acres, so it was fairly long) cutting firewood, helping raise the younger children and of course, all being expected to follow my Mum's number one command "GET A JOB".

    One day I will have children. When they are five, they will be given two options. "Get a Job" or "Move Out" Proper Parenting 101.

    And the 90s.

    Back then we could jump in the car and make a day trip to Seattle just to shop and eat and make it home by midnight. The cost of gas was nothing!

    That's awesome! You grow up in the midwest too? first paper route, 2nd grade. 7th grade started two daily morning routes. 9th grade job at store 30hrs/week/school, 60 hrs/week/summer. all through high school up at 4:30 for routes, into store to cook or put up groceries, work after school, lift weights, two shifts saturday. if i wanted something including more food than was on the table, i bought it.

    i didn't complain at the time, but i didn't realize just how valuable it was until later. i'll say it was the best upbringing i could have had. taught me value of hard work and independence i needed later. Only thing is now if i have too much food, i can forced with not wanting to waste food at all, but then i eat too much and feel rotten.

    Yeah, my first few years out of high school, my parents gave me an Exxon credit card to use for gas. It was around $1 per gallon and they didn't care.

    If I had that now?

    Hearses. I collect and love my hearses.
    Love my cads but finding a pre 80s Lincoln hearse has been a real challenge to say the least.

    Thunderbirds are also in there too.

    can't remember the breed, but the ghostbusters hearse would make a nice add to your collection

    nuts-on. Ecto–1 is a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor[53] limo-style endloader combination car (ambulance conversion). for some reason, i'd thought it'd been a hearse, then again that was a loooooong time ago.
