    Re: HUBLEY "STAR" REUNITED

    It took Joe about 4 seconds to recognize the gun and the fact that he had the barrel to it. I am glad we could united the piece after so many years. I have fond memories of playing with one of those when I was a wee little man.

    It was an awesome day even with the poop smell. LOL

    That's a mean way to talk about Joe. I mean, I did meet him once with Roger(getty) and I did notice a bit of a smell, but didn't wanna say anything!

    HA it may have been me for all that matters, I was feeling kind of ripe that day. LOL JK I think the farmer spreading manure was more than enough for all of us.

    Yeah when they spread that manure you can smell it miles away. Stinks pretty bad.

    Believe me when I say my husband throws Nothing away...we've got the basement, spare room and stuff moving into the barn to prove it. He's a dedicated collector of many things - just saving history one piece at a time. Gotta love it.

    Yeah with those winds we had that day coming from the West, we thought it was you, until we saw the tractor coming up the drive. (JK )
