5,000+ Hits.

I've seen other people celebrate similar milestones, so we (Bob & Toni) thought it would be fun to do so as well. Wow! Our gallery looks so much different than we originally intended. We only planned on purchasing one cel and that was it. Obviously, we had no idea how addictive this hobby can be! ^_^ We never imagined receiving 5,000 hits or so many Votes! Thanks so much everyone. Maybe we will change the welcome banner image on our gallery or something.

We began cel hunting less than one year ago, but we have been fortunate enough to purchase nearly everything we desired. We will probably never stop collecting completely, but we will slow down.

So far, I've been lucky enough to never have to touch my salary or credit cards in order to purchase cels. This financial restraint forces me to be choosey, and I have missed out on some amazing cels. But it's nice to know I'm not putting myself into debt with this hobby. The minute it feels like work or becomes a burden, I want out. Cel collecting brings us a lot of joy, but I never want it to prevent us from doing what we want in life. Like traveling, purchasing another home, etc.

As many of you know, we are currently remodeling our house and hope to move in this year. This obligation makes our schedule chaotic, but it's nice to be in control of your future. Soon we will have pictures posted online to display the (slow) progress. ^_^

I want to express my appreciation to Rubberslug and the people who keep it running. It's a splendid place to display your collection and meet fellow cel collectors. I've met some of the coolest, nicest people:

MDKiller1, SME, GB, Mokman, RalphVBoy, Blueheaven, Shampoo, noisywalrus, Rheytarian, indy, purple-plum, fetish4minx, Not Sir Phobos, Zag, Drax, HotIceHilda, Al and Nic, HyELaKinGsFaN, KageNeko, Kisara, Klet, Leah, tex-chan, Kata, jckun, JWR, backlotanimation, magiktori, Mirai Peorth, Gabriel, MacKettric and sooooo many others!

I love all of you guys. The RS community is the best. If you need help, advice, opinions, assistance, etc, RS people are always there for you. <huggles everyone> Thank you! And visit our webcomic http://welcomeconsumer.com
