My apologies if my tone came across as mean-spirited at all... I should have realized that tone does not come through, even with emoticons. I sincerely meant good natured humor, but I apologize if that didn't come through.


I didn't mean you. :)

I read it as joking so no worries from my end :)

I was originally trying to make it big enough to go for 5 levels....then that one card fell but by some miracle none of the rest of them did...so I held my breath and finished the 3 levels and took a pic before they all fell! Otherwise someone was gonna lose an eye because this was at about hour 5 split between 2 nights of trying to build a house of cards :x So short answer, yes it had to have been divine intervention! Lol :mrgreen:

Lol! I assumed it had to be the actual phone (after they said it had to be like the meme that got posted) or i would have just ordered that one to get it lol! That one really was not that hard if I had known what to look for! There was a broadcasting/telecommunications museum not far from me... but instead I went to every antique store within like 30 miles of me, and there are A LOT! Lol, lessons learned for next year ;)


I feel you! I can't tell you how many awkward conversations I had with antiques shop owners about the phone before we finally found the collector. I knew early what a Zack Morris phone was, it just took us a while to actually find it. :) I'll be honest, I thought it was going to be unfindable - which is why I was desperately posting trying for the half point. I also thought the triplets were going to be unfindable until you found them, It pushed me to work harder... and whew, talk about an awkward conversation. Having to ask a family to take a picture of their triplet toddlers??

I got lucky with the triplets, I went to school with a set of them but haven't talked to them since high school. I'm friends with two of the three on Facebook so I contacted them to see if they'd be willing to take a picture with me and they looped their sister in and it just happened to work out that I was down where they were one day! They joked with me and said I was only the second person to ask them to do this LOL

Whew... thanks (and thanks to jmbohler for their post). Last thing I would have wanted would be to offend! It's probably embarassing how much I enjoy this hunt - but shucks, I do. I really do. :mrgreen: Hazel and lwmjr, thanks for hosting it again. After rumblings last year, I was afraid it was going to go away. Please never let that happen!

I knew where to get a Zack Morris phone for sure, but wasn't willing to drive 2+ hours to get there (http://www.savedbythemax.com/ - they have an area with props and stuff, and thanks to a youtube channel I knew for sure they had a Zack Morris phone.) I also saw a couple for sale but couldn't bring myself to ask people if I could meet up just to take a picture with the item they were selling. I tried museums from the start, but couldn't find anything at all locally (within an hour drive or so) that would have one (I found cell phone museums in Europe online!).

One museum I asked at I told the guy I was looking for an "old school cell phone" because he was too young to fully understand "Zack Morris phone" when I told him and he went back to ask the lady and he ended up telling her I was looking for an "antique cell phone" and she came out looking at me like I was stupid and said, "There's no such thing as an antique cell phone." Oy. LOL

That sounds like my little ones. We don’t have a house phone at our house, just cell phones, so when we went to visit my parents house, my kids were TOTALLY confused by “that thing on the wall with the curly cord” :lol:

The half points with words don't figure into the score. It won't matter for my points (in terms of where I place), other than my OCD wanting it to be a nice number, but it might matter for someone else's total.

I see you have 105 Photos on flickr, i am not sure what some of them are suppose to represent, I went by the # items you posted, for the spreadsheet. It would be helpful if you tag some of the pics, FB_IMG_1542077001093, FB_IMG_1542077031384, FB_IMG_1542077028853

Um, that Saved By the Max pop up looks awesome! But the antique cellphone.... hahahhaaa! I was shocked how 'easy' it was to find a really old telephone but not the 80's brick-style cellphone. It was bizarre as I would totally pass up these amazing antique phones - and I had to clarify more than once that I mean 1980, not 1880. :P

Haha! You asked! Add. :) Like I said, it doesn't matter much for me, but one or two are in the 90 point range, I think.
