We have to start paying Henry in biltong and Amarula Cream!
Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry, "Hey buddy, have you got a dime?"
And the beat goes on, the beat goes on...

Guys I do understand about the spending, I have been keeping a very close eye on the rates, and that is one reason I am not doing much with the toyshop. Also I was going to close TB4 before Xmas, but now it will stay open indeffinate, at least till the exchange rate starts to drop. So I will be placing toys from time to time, but it will be very slow in the shop for now. I don't think you will mind.
Thank you for commenting on my prices, like I said so many times before,it is not a profit thing, I enjoy doing it for fellow VW nuts.
Don't argue with an idiot, people watching may not be able to tell the difference

he he he he Henry says i am a VW nut. Henry i have notice that the sale of the toys for TB$ did came down, even myself are trying my best not to spend to much on it now, I just hope the rate will get better, my wife already made a comment that i should stop spending on my toys, but i think it is because she want a swimingpool. Even Arcelor Mittal - the company that i work for is scaling down on spending and they are cutting all overtime here were i am working

I also get paid in dollars, but luckily I live and spend in SA, so hopefully this month Xmas will come early. :mrgreen: Renovating the house is really putting a dent in my bank balance. :zhelp:
Although it's nice to get paid extra when the xchange rate goes mal, it's not a good thing for anyone who has to buy anything from overseas.
The only substitute for cubic inches are more cubic inches.
