Greetings everyone TGIF! We hope everyone is looking forward to a great weekend with their family, friends and hobbies.

I am just back from the New Jersey show with a little break before Cold Wars in Lancaster, PA next week. This is a historical gaming convention but we also bring toy soldiers.  If you want me to bring anything to the show or any other shows gives a list in advance.

Coming up soon is our local Toy Soldier Show:

I hope some of you watched me on the episode of Strange Inheritance in which I appeared on last week.
The half-hour episode will re-air on Fox Business Network at 9:00 or 9:30PM during the week on occassion. Here is a commercial for the episode Link: Toy Soldiers hopefully the full episode will be on soon.

Wow what a windy day we had in Boston yesterday! We hope you all are getting ready for Spring. Hopefully we are in the clear for snowstorms at this point.
I am just back from the Annandale, VA Toy Soldier Show and preparing to jump back in the car and head off to New Jersey on Saturday. If you want me to bring anything to the Crowne Plaza in Saddle Brook, NJ let me know by Friday night (if I have it I’ll bring it).

PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE:

I’m very pleased to share with you the premiere date and time for the episode of Strange Inheritance in which I
participated.
I have been running Hobby Bunker for 19 years. I was brought in as the Toy Soldier “Expert” in this episode. It was a pleasure working with Carole Postal during the entire process, unfortunately we lost her husband Bob. He frequented the Hackensack for many years. I later went back and packed up the Collection for Carole. Many of the sets were moved to the Strong Museum in Rochester, NY, however about a third of it remains in NYC. It will be on display at the NY Historical Society in Manhattan sometime this year.
 The half-hour episode will premiere on Fox Business Network on Monday, March 6th, @ 9:30pm EST.  

Please note this is EASTERN TIME. It will re-air on Wednesday, March 8th @ 9:00pm EST.   These episodes re-run numerous times at later dates.
