And She Stays? - Part 2 - Electric Boogaloo

In a follow-up report on the last post. The hockey table is still in the basement. It has been moved in between the the inset shelves.

Okay, here goes. . . .

As you can see the table offsets the luxurious shelving created by yours truly with the help of the 'puter implanted in my head. Note the box of unopened figures needed a place to live and thus the opposite wall is shaping up to look similar. . . .but longer shelves.

Across the room, centering the two new hockey shelves is the display of horror. Some would say this whole basement is a display of horror and others still would describe my marriage as such. When my daughter was younger, a friend of hers stayed over and they wanted to sleep in the basement. My daughter was showing her around. When she got to this display, she reached into Leatherface's bucket and said "Look, there's a bloody head in here!". . . . .They slept upstairs.

The wall between the hockey wall of fame (surprisingly without Keith Tkachuk or Cliff Ronning) is the "Everything else shelf. Filled with the Justice League, Alien, Iron Man, Fantastic Four and a veritable plethora of other things, this was supposed to be the bar. . . .. Oops!Moving to the far end of the basement, we have the Spider-Man/Batman setup. Amassing the collection of collections, this (as I now look at it) has grow a little since the picture was taken. Note to the right of the picture, the Spidey phone. I actually brought this into work when I worked for the Navy and replaced my desk phone with it. Needless to say, I had a hard time getting promoted and have left for other Governmental endeavors. Out of the picture to the right is a collection of X-Men figures, which is attached to the wall of the BIG comic book wall. . .. but that's a story for another time.

Holy cow! That's some "collection"! I know some people who collect Star Wars like that! Do your kids ever pick them up and do they all have assigned places? Has your wife ever considered having you put to sleep? JUST KIDDING! If there's ever a fire, we know where they'll find you! ;)

Good to know the gov't checks out the people they hire! HA

Well, at least you're handy around the house! Have you ever put a price tag on all the figures? What happens when you run out of room in the basement? Very impressive, DL!

It's funny! Not only do my kids know, but the neighborhood kids know "DON'T TOUCH MY TOYS!"

Truthfully, it has spread thorughout the house a little.

You can justify bringing the Fantastic four statue up to the main house because:
1. It cost $600 (4x$150)
2. Two pieces were presents from my wife. Wouldn't want to be unappreciative.

I don't believe you posted your inner sanctum on the web. Nice.
