Way to go though movieman forum could use some more discussion and ebay is an aerea of much interest to me as I'm kinda on a storage auction hyatus and doing mainly ebay right now so love the discussions. Thanks.

Decades ago writers for Saturday Evening Post, etc used to get paid by the word (but they had to be good ones).
If only Travis would cut loose like that !

Nope, I don't enter his contests for a $X.XX gift card. It hasn't come to that yet.

I thought he was just off his meds.  Kidding of course.   ;)

He's a posting machine....and he won't work for nobody but me.  :D

Well, Travis is partially right anyway. I post for the forum and the readers. And I did have an offer from Storage Treasures including access to all the TV stars for interviews, but I politely declined because it sounded to much like a real job (with potential deadlines) and right now I'm about doing what I want, when I want.

Yep, just like ol' Lance Watkins, a real snake in the grass. Trying to steal our MVP. That's just bad manners.

The more I get to know you MM, the more I realize that "I'm about doing what I want, when I want" truly sums up your personality. Not that there is anything wrong with that...you only live once.

And the longer you live (the older you get) the more you will realize that is true.

I don't know if I've ever asked you this, but what did you do for a living before you got into storage auctions/picking?

You may not have asked, but you have speculated. My response to your assesment was that you got the part right about me doing what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it.

So, there are several possible answers and any of these will do:

1) Only now matters.
2) We dare not tread on the time before auctions and picking.
3) I had no life before auctions and picking.

Based on that description, I think I can narrow it down a bit. If I guess will you tell me if I get it right?

1. Former NSA, CIA, FBI now classified as RED - (Retired, Extremely Dangerous)
2. Hitman
3. Mafia, now in the witness protection program
4. Bounty hunter
5. Repo man
6. Designer of the Skip Trace program.
7. Spy or double agent
8. Detective

1) All of the above.
2) None of the above.

"My sister, my daughter. My sister, my daughter!" (another member here might get that film reference.)

But really, I'm not unproud of my past though I did things for which I wasn't punished, but I don't live in the past and it made me part of what I am today (as is the case for all of us).  I'm just happy where and when I am and hope to be for awhile yet, no matter where that takes me.

Administered lethal injections?

The first list was closer than the second, but what I really recommend is an extensive course at the Acme Detective
School....right down the hall from the Acme Anvil Works which is next door to Roadrunner Sneakers.

A lot of us on this forum like a good quest.  If you are up for a challenge of a different kind, see the thread below:
