Thanks to those of you who sent me PMs, some of which were sent weeks ago but that I just read this morning. Today is the first time in weeks that I have been able to start my computer. I'm currently at a crossroads whether to pay to have it fixed, with no guarantees that is even possible, or to purchase a new computer. In the meantime, if responses are attached to this message that I don't reply to, its not that I'm ignoring them but rather that my computer is on the fritz again, making it impossible for me to reply. Just as soon as my computer is either repaired/replaced I will be back.

The plus side to my computer problems is that I have been devoting my free time to my oil paintings, which is something I previously put on the back-burner due to my usual six to eight hours a day doing various forms of research.

Speaking of my oil paintings, here's my latest work. Its of Monument Valley/Navajo Tribal Park, northern Arizona. I call it "Sunrise Guardians." The tall formation is the 'Totem Pole' followed by 'Yebechei Rocks' with 'Rooster Rock' in the background. The Mountain Lion is considered the Navajo guardian of the North.

The downside is that I plan to be gone today, making it impossible for me to post any replies, and suspect that my computer will likely crash again before I get back. However, as I said previously, I will be back on a more regular basis just as soon as I correct my computer problems.

Thanks again and HAPPY 4th of JULY

Bob

Note:

My painting style can best be described as Surreal/Impressionistic. I use a combination of extremely thick paint over smooth paint for effect.

Thanks for the reply. I'm still linked but only momentarily. Very nice work! Thanks for sharing. Maybe I should subtitle this thread ...

My name on here used to be texas bottle man, changed because of all the questions I get about the DP bottles.
Do you have a copy of the book I co-wrote with Ray Duncan, Dr Pepper Bottles and price guide, and also the book I was writing on the Old Corner Drugstore in Waco, Tx. If not, send me your email and I will send by email, thanx, Doyle

Have a good 4th, and remember "when ya lite em, throw em"

Thanks

But as it turns out, my computer problems are so bad that I'm temporarily cancelling my Internet service until I can figure things out. My service stops tomorrow and this will be my last post, possibly for weeks - months. With that said, I'd like to thank the administration and all members for their devotion to this site. I'd also like to thank everyone for their participation in the numerous threads I have been involved with over the years. They have been some of the most rewarding and enjoyable conversations and debates I have ever participated in regarding the hobby of soda bottle collecting. Please keep up the good work in my absence. I'll likely be back someday, I just don't know when.

Thanks, again, and ...

Adios Amigos

Thanks. I hope you're right. In the meantime, I'm going to see what type of access there is via my local Library computers - I don't know yet if they will allow me access to various forums, etc. If they do, you'll likely hear from me time to time - we'll see.
