That's right, it's June! The Hall had an eventful month of May. Had a birthday on Star Wars Day - May the Fourth - and celebrated by seeing Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2. Awesome movie. Over Memorial Day weekend Colleen and I went camping at the Blockhouse Disc Golf and Country Club AKA The Grange. Had a blast as usual! Probably had a few too many adult beverages but I never lost my flashlight so was always able to find my tent in the pitch blackness of rural Stafford County, Virginia. In between I was able to list several more long boxes and also made a few purchases that I think could turn out to be quite lucrative indeed. Cool

Good news and gooder news (is 'gooder' even a word? Nailbiting )! Don't know if you all remember but last year I had a set of shelves collapse on me and had some partial paralysis in my left leg. All better now except for occasional tinglyness. (Boy am I making up some new words today! Dancing ). Even better news is that I am finally replacing the rickety shelves with a sturdier product. At the end of this month I will be getting the new stuff and installing it in my storage room. It will be a tough task because I am going to have to do it in stages due to the limited space I have. Move the old stuff out, move the new stuff in - that's what it's all about! Hopefully I will be able to get it done without having to put my store into Vacation Mode or otherwise delaying any orders. If something like that were to happen then I would alert you for sure.

Another not so fun thing happened in May but it turned out OK. As most of you know I take care of a colony of stray cats. Last year a new one started showing up (I call him Skittles) and I was unable to find his owner and also couldn't get him adopted. So I guess he's mine now. He is an awesome kitty and I can't believe that anyone would have purposely abandoned him but whatever his story is he is being taken care of now.

Anyway, he showed up limping several weeks ago and I had to take him to the vet. We're not sure what happened but his leg had some type of fracture. I never see him in the street so I think it happened while he was jumping or running away from something and got it caught in a fence or whatever. It wasn't bad enough that it had to be splinted but I did keep him captured in my upstairs bathroom for three weeks while it healed. He's all better now so it ended up just costing a bit from the wallet but nothing from my heart.

My CCL plans for this month are modest. Since I am getting the new shelves in a few weeks a lot of time will be spent getting my space organized so it will be an easy transition. So rather than Quantity I will focus on Quality and list a half box or two of Silver Age comics. I will also endeavor to get all of my Unshelved Items into my virtual Store Shelves. I know that some of you like them! I have gotten a little behind on that so I will try to have every comic in my Inventory in a store shelf to make it easier for you to browse.

Thank you again to all of my Spectacular Customers! I couldn't do it without you! Applause Dancing Kiss Big Hug

Yup, they're up!

It ended up being around 250 books. Here are the highlights:

Publishers

Dark Horse
Drawn and Quarterly
Eclipse
Fantagraphics
Icon
Image
Kitchen Sink
Sirius
Slave Labor Graphics
Valiant
and other more obscure comic companies

Large runs of the following titles:

Bone (Both Cartoon Books and Image)
Critters
Deadface
Death Rattle
Poison Elves
Strangehaven
Strangers in Paradise (including some Gold Series Reprints)
Wordsmith
Xenozoic Tales
X-O Manowar

Still waiting for my storage shelves to come in so I might have time to list more comics this upcoming week. I've got about a long box and a half of Transformers books from the earliest Marvel issues right up until a couple years ago (IDW/Dreamwave, etc.). I think there's a new Transformers movie coming out. Hmm...Think

Don't be surprised if I end up listing those! Silly

They're here! Dancing

Getting ready to go pick up the new shelves. It's a chunk of change but it will allow me to expand safely. The process of putting them up and transferring everything over is going to take a while, hopefully I won't have to go on Vacation Mode while I'm doing it. Until it is finished orders might take a little longer to be filled and I apologize in advance if that happens. I will get it done as quickly as possible and then get back to bringing you good comic entertainment!

That includes the Forums! I've been so busy recently preparing for this that I have slacked off on the Message Boards. Once everything is settled then I will be back with a vengeance! Cool

Shelves are up! They are awesome and will certainly help my business. Tell you what though, it was a lot of strenuous labor. Whew!

I was trying to get a box of comics up before the weekend but it wasn't meant to be so I will finish it up next week.

Going out of town for almost a week, will return next Thursday, July 6th and ship any orders at that time.

Have a Happy Fourth of July Holiday! Dancing Party
