The problem with owning collectables
...is that they break.
Usually when you don't have the time and/or skills to fix them yourself. I tried to outsource the last set of repairs to two of my babies
before parking them at the home of some kindly friends (they won't fit through my own doors, worse luck). Less than three weeks later, however, both were down again. Given that it took a truck which cost $150 to rent and a day of my time to move them from the shop to their current resting place, one way, without even getting into the money I"ve spent repairing them, it doesn't look like they're going back there.
It's a pity. They did a great job with the first one. Now I have to worry about the other three of mine they currently have...sigh...
