Hi Tony Trout,

EP's an expensive hobby, whether it's "collecting" or simply picking up those occasional things that you enjoy. Every single one of us, at one time or another, has wanted something that may have been a bit out of our reach. In such cases, you decide how badly you want it and make the necessary sacrifices to obtain. In some very expensive cases, it may take quite a bit of time and patience. Only you can make the decision whether it is worth it or not.

Must say, I've become extremely selective in my EP purchases. Too much hype and too little substance (not to mention overpriced) is all too common in The EP World, especially for us lifelong hardcore fans. Those two books that you want, IMO, fall into the above category (for me). However, to each their own.

Collect or buy what will bring you joy and you can afford (or are willing to make the effort and sacrifice to obtain over time) and to heck with others think (myself included). Don't let others destroy the joy that you derive from your hobbies (whether it be your mother, or people on this mb). Only you know what is right, for *YOU*. So, just decide and then go to it.

Good luck, enjoy and all my best wishes, to you.

While I have been very patient and understanding of your difficulties, your continuing comments are really not doing you any favours.

Over the last week you have given us a run down of your personal problems (not got a problem with that), received mostly positive and constructive comments on that thread, mysteriously that thread disappears, you then start another thread insulting those who tried to help, throw your toys out of the pram and announce you're leaving, and then return within 72 hours and expect people not to comment on it. Whether there are problems in your life or not, people will treat you in the way you treat them in the main - and at the moment you're almost asking for trouble with each and every comment you type.

If you need help, seek it out. We're living in 2013, not the dark ages, and admitting you're struggling to cope with life is not something to be ashamed of or embarassed about. If there aren't actually big problems and you don't need help and you're simply having an extended hissy fit, get over it quickly and start making amends, or the people who have been kind to you are going to lose their patience very rapidly.

It's the former, thank you very much. Can we just please drop this? I'm doing my best to get back on everyone's good side and comments like that do NOT help the situation.

I'm on your side, Tony. Keep it up!

I tried to help you, Tony, but you are making things worse. I told you that you would have to deal with this and told you to ignore it until it passed. You have done just the opposite and now you are dealing with the result.

When you come on here with the dramatics that you have exhibited, said that you were leaving, twice as I recall, then decide to stay and fuss when you catch hell, you can expect what you are getting. The longer you bark about it, the longer you will deal with it.

Either leave for good, or be quiet and eventually it will pass. What's the use in getting advice if you're not going to use it? You are still bringing this on yourself. Stop opening and reading the posts on this thread if you don't like them. Eventually, it will sink to the bottom and be forgotten.

It's up to you, but your way is currently not working in case you've not noticed.

I don't think there's anything more to be said on this topic. Tony, ask the mod to remove your silly topic and be done with it.

Well, I'd just like to say one last thing before the mod squad deletes the thread. I'm in love with the Direct TV genie!

I'm sure the feeling from her is mutual. She's probably in love with you, too, Pete.

I've looked into this Blue River. She's Derek Jeter's squeeze. So I don't stand a chance. Unless she likes foul balls.

Now that is funny. Im guessing with her looks she hasn't chased any foul balls in quite some time.
