    Hello everybody it's nice to "meet" you.
    My name is Craig and I have sinned. I've posted in Politics. Ignorance of the law I know is no excuse but I'm claiming it anyway to maybe get a reduced sentence. I'm pretty sure I'm a newbie still tho so if it's ok with everyone I'll just hit reset, introduce myself and start all over. I joined this site a few days ago...and only one hour after I signed up on twitter and saw a tweet that said Trump had "blocked" Stephen King. Before I read another word I thought Mr. King must be on to something...he MUST be doing something right. It's just been a few days but I have enjoyed reading Mr. King on twitter and have also enjoyed my time albeit short with you. Everyone...especially the moderators...have been very helpful and have shown a high degree of kindness. Never having been on any forum before I will probably commit more sins, errors or blunders so feel free to blast away just don't eat my carcass...someone actually mentioned cannibalism earlier. As for me I am a retired conductor off the Illinois Central R.R....my life includes my beautiful wife, IM007564.JPG golf and as much of it as I can get in before winter comes to Iowa. I also collect and sell and repair old crank phonographs, victrolas and gramophones. Edison, Victor Talking Machines, Columbia or anything before electricity really. I have been pretty busy and have sold around 3000 machines now in the last 25 years. I've found it keeps me out of the bars...well for the most part anyway. From time to time if it's allowed (have to check on that) I'll try to show a pic or two of the prettier machines I have or have had sold in the past. And one last thing...believe it or not I hate to type!
