  1. Written by F. Proni ---------- Greetings, Many of us in the neon industry have had the great opportunity to learn, work with, and interact with Ed Waldrum, the founder of the Ed Waldrum School of Neon, Irving, Texas. For those of you who knew him, Ed was a vibrant man with a deep instilled passion for neon and teaching. He was a true American, a veteran, and a great supporter of our craft. Ed passed away this week at the age of 83. He will truly be missed. Waldrum, Ed 83, of Irving, passed away on July 21, 2010. He is survived by his wife, Mary Waldrum, children, Steve Waldrum & wife
  2. I've seen this before. If it were not so true it may be funny... but it isn't funny because it's so true.
  3. A 150 year old sign with neon? Not unless it was added at a much later time.
  4. You can also have the one on my home page if you want.
  5. Maybe Erik has been married too long...
  6. I've seen this before some time ago but can't remember where.

  8. Regarding the subject, as the old saying goes, me feel guilty? Not a chance! I'm a realist, not a doom-n-gloom fantasist.
  9. Interesting, I did not know that! I never gave much thought to towable lifts and cranes, just the usual flat bed trailers for hauling finished signs to the job site. Although I have no use for such equipment any more, that idea sounds like something I would have jumped on. Depending on how big the trailer rig is, a pick up truck could easily tow it! I'm with Gary on this one: It would be a lot less expense to own and operate. You could have 2 or 3 trailer rigs and only need one truck. And if for some reason you needed 2 of the rigs at the same job site and it was too far away to make a quick
  10. I saw the article too. That was not the only "boo-boo". I think something was lost in the translations...
  11. I feel very bad for the family and all those involved. And it may sound cold under the circumstances, but simple basic common sense should have told him not to stick a screw driver in a light socket without checking the power first. It is unbelievable that this situation even happened.
  12. $30/box of 100 ea. + $6/box SH&I While supplies last.

  14. I was more impressed with the collection of cars than anything anyway, but saddened to see the obvious state they were kept in. But the story begs the question, what if the owner had died with no heirs? I'm sure the authorities would have opened the barn to make sure there wasn't a bunch of dead bodies or nuclear missiles in it. One can still dream though...
  15. When you said "barn" I was thinking "old wood barn". That is some barn! As for the contents, I think it is safe to say that the retirees have found something to do with their time. Even if it is just to dispose of the contents it will take a while (sigh).
  16. Everything seems fairly normal today on my main shop computer. Wasn't that way yesterday here. I couldn't get on most of the day, but when I did half of everything was gone. Maybe I was on when you were doing upgrades.
  17. Yup. Let me see how it works from the shop tomorrow on my other computer.
  18. Did all that, still had to log on 3 times. Hard to say at this point if everything is working okay. Not everything looks right at this point.
  19. No doubt. Kgirl, I'd give you a hug if I could but I'm too far away so this will have to do as a cheap cyber space substitute (Just disregard the last move... I can't change how I am
  20. What??? Yes, it would be great to have some contact info for him and know where he landed. Q for Sean: Is Kevin's cell ph. # still the same - do you know?
  21. Well, gee, considering you put it that way maybe congratulations are not in order? On a serious note, at my age and knowing what I know, I do not envy anyone trying to raise children in today's society where is a big no-no. On a heartfelt note, a sincere congratulations! May your family grow and prosper and avoid most of the potholes in the road that is life
