Nothing against P-town, we have ( wifey and me ) strong ties to there but....I know many of our friends just loooovvvvveeee Ricky & Enrique :)

Speaking of cheap sleeps there, back in the 80's you used to be able to "sneak" into the Pilgrim Tower and sleep in there. A little unnerving sleeping on those  ramp-stairs going up but a great view to watch a sunrise from.

Yup.  I wonder if it's the whole book, or just the back cover.  Sounds crazy to us, but I bet there's someone out there that collects "vintage comic-book advertisements"...and please let me know if you find them.  :twisted:


There is a huge market in magazine advertisments.  You see them in most of the antique malls or and even smaller shops. It is a specialized market but there is money to be made teraing the old magazines apart and selling the individual advertisments. I guess it might eventually migrate into the comic book arena. It seems a crime to me but I am a book/magazine nut.

Heh, I will be making my annual voyage to the Cape in less than 6 weeks now. :)

OK....lessons gleaned by a westerner from this strand, about the Cape Cod region:

1)  Something there is called "Pea-Town."

2)  There is a place called Pilgrim's Tower that looks about as "pilgrim" as Kiss looks Amish.

3)  It is a community that tends to lean toward the Ricky Martin side of the fence.

4)  People apparently go there to sleep as cheaply as possible.

   Yah, alles ganz klar.

I have no idea how many times I've seen this same darn robe hook and towel bar relisted in the D&D category.  What on earth is seller thinking?

Yes. TSR made some Beach Towels based on the cartoon IIRC.

TSR made some beach towels based on the cartoon property except none featured the kids, or Venger and the DM, in the cartoon themselves.  It seems TSR was more deliberate in licensing the kids' and primary character images than secondary characters such as Kelek, Warduke, Strongheart, etc. who come up quite often in Colorforms, party supplies, etc.

And there were beach towels licensed earlier, before the cartoon was even imagined... but those are much rarer. (See the old Sutherland auctions.)

That seller has over a thousand items, on ebay right now, so they must be using seller software of some sort.  They probably clicked the wrong category on a software menu somewhere (or entered the wrong category number into a box) and never noticed.

I've done it a million times. I call it "Save-As Syndrome." You list 10 straight items in Games-RPG-Fantasy-D&D-Accessories or something, then forget to make a category change when you list a Panzer Blitz.

I catch most of my goofs within 12 hours, though ... :)
