I blame the Nazis.

Christ no - he's possibly the worst thing that could happen now and will be just another of the awful cunts they've had in charge.

I had hopes for CFK when she started, but she never managed to do a great deal and the guys since her have been very average.

Their currency has been shit forever - fuck knows how ordinary people survive there.

Underground untaxed economy, cheap energy thanks to high gov subsidies, free basic medical care, devotion to soccer, sense of community and the support that goes with that (at least in the north).

Maybe we should all give that a go - from your travels it seems the people there aren't too discontent.

I've heard it's pretty cold in Argentina.

In fact, it's bordering on Chile.

Long as our health holds out we plan on bucking that trend. Iḿ 67, FL is 63, now is the time.

Three more gem and mineral shows remain on our schedule this year. We will be in cashing out mode, have a couple other buyers who seem willing to swoop in to pick up whatś left if the price is right.
heh, finished our very last show today. Even sold the display cases and lights, wasn´t hard. One small antler carving of a skull with a beret is now all that remains of a past empire.

Thank you, grayman. I am very happy to be retired. Kind of amazed we managed to actually do it.

That quote by Shelly is the title of the eleventh issue of the twelve series Watchmen. I bought them all one by one when that was published back in the 80s, too bad their value never increased much. That´s my next project, though a much smaller one, selling all my hundreds of old underground comic books.
