For B&O and CNJ fans going to the show

Post by Ward Hutton » Wed Sep 16, 2009 7:03 pm

If you are a B&O and/or a CNJ fan and you come across a great deal at the show, WALK AWAY! Go away, think about it, check some other dealers, then go back about an hour later to get it.


Every year I see a great deal, turn around to think about it, turn back and someone else has picked it up!
No Fair! I need time to think! ;) ;)

No snoozing this year! :D:D:D:D:D:D

There is always something I regret not buying, so I try to buy everything. LOL.

Worst part of missing a great deal is when you check this forum a few days later and the person who beat you out is gloating. LMAO.

Alls fair in love and war. Thank Heavens G scaling is all about love !!!

See you in York !!!

My wife is staying home. So it is just me and my credit cards heading to the ECLSTS. What happens at York will stay hidden in the garage until needed in the garden.
