Re: What comics did you buy today?

I didn't say I was any good, Steve. I can see the correct shots but quite a lot goes wrong from that point. Russ is a reasonable player and Alex is definitely learning steadily, but doesn't yet take the game seriously.

Re: What comics did you buy today?

'I now only have 114 issues missing from the full run' sounds like you're getting the thrill of the hunt in your nostrils, Derek. Next you'll be telling yourself I'll just try to get that number into double figures Sorry about the delay in replying, Ray, but this afternoon I took Lois and Alex plus...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Orpington High Street.. My mother's brother, uncle Cyril and his wife, my auntie Mary, lived in Orpington. In Goddington Lane if memory serves. Their two sons, Michael and John, both went to Oxford University. My father used to hold them up as an example for me to follow, but I didn't want to go ei...

Re: What comics did you buy today?

Earlier in the week I ordered 13 issues of BUNTY (eleven from 1958 : two from 1960) from 30th Century Comics. They arrived this morning, suitably bagged and protected as always. I'm very happy with them. I now only have 114 issues missing from the full run, very few of them being contiguous. I rang ...

Re: Looking for help in identifying vintage comic

Of course, Steve, we are not being remotely critical of your memory, but i think most members would agree with me that it is about time you tidied up your storage unit!!!!!

Re: RELUCTANTLY SELLING COLLECTION

I assume, Bri, that when you wrote Misry, you meant MISTY. Why did you sell your full run of MISTY without giving me a chance to bid? You knew perfectly well that I had stated that I would buy the full run from you, paying your asking price plus your p&p costs. I do expect a reply, Bri, as I am very...

Re: RELUCTANTLY SELLING COLLECTION

I'll take the full run of MISTY off your hands, Bri. Just name your price, and include the postage and packing costs. You will at least know that they will be with a genuine collector, and therefore appreciated and looked after.

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

Derek (aka Phoenix) has emailed me those 3 Patient Penny scans from the Suzy comic I can't take any credit whatsoever, Al, for emailing the scans to you. My only input was to make Stephen, the computer expert, a cup of coffee while he scanned the three pages, and then uploaded them to you. I still ...

Re: New look forum

Having looked carefully at all your options, Al, I have to agree with Shiner that the clear winner by a country mile is Aero. Mind you, in my youth an Aero was a bar of chocolate. It's still too early in the morning for my thinking process to have fully kicked in, but come lunchtime I feel certain t...

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

Sorry about the delay in replying, Al, but believe it or not, we had a power cut here today which lasted several hours, the power only being restored at about half six. Anybody would think it was wartime again. My computer friend did arrive as expected, but under the circumstances there was nothing ...

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

You see, there's another problem, Al. I can't even remember how to do that. I have a friend here who lives and works locally, and who is a computer expert. I'll ring him later and ask him to come over tomorrow morning if he can. There is no point asking him to come today because I'm spending most of...

My day out in Truro

As the grandchildren were staying at their Nan's for a couple of nights, last Wednesday was a free day for me, so I decided to go to Truro for the day. Rather than drive up there, I went on the train. I just aimed to visit Waterstones and the two decent secondhand bookshops. From Waterstones I got 3...

Re: "A pony tale" in Suzy

I have issue 190 of SUZY, which contains the story of 'Patient Penny'. If you PM me your full name and address, I will scan the three pages and get them off to you in the post. I am unwilling to attempt the process of uploading them to ComicsUK because I have forgotten how to do so, and I am far too...
