I have a few other hobbies, one of which is repairing and restoring then operating older firearms. This is a L1A1 self loading rifle I built from loose parts on a new receiver.

I'm a (semi) pro photographer-meaning I've sold some of my stuff.

I'm also a published writer.

I make audio CD radio shows based on my, (former), underground radio station format. My current project is called- "Showcase Radio". It includes original humor, old radio shows, unique music, movie outtakes-stuff like that.

I used to collect and restore vintage microphones, (some very expensive), telephones and telegraph equipment. (You could go to Myspace and search terrydec for my collections if you want). I only have 5 microphones left, but also a truck. (Yes, it was hard to sell everything).

Since I have a lot of time lately I'm building models- ships, airplanes-that kind of thing.

Of course I still collect, repair and restore radios when I can afford it and I'm trying to teach my dog to play chess.

I love to go catfishing. Too darn hot this past summer and water levels low I didn't get out once.

You will need to up load your photos to a hosting site first. Try photobucket.com, then you can use the "image" option when you post to include a link to your photo. Hope this helps!

a) it depends on whether you have a Mac or PC. If PC it depends on whether you use FireFox or Internet Explorer. When you get a photo online, (more on that later), and have IE you must copy and paste the URL. If FF then you right click and choose "Copy image location. Either way you then open a dialogue box, (like this one), and go to the Image icon. When you click on that a small rectangle appears that says Browse. Find the image and paste it there. Underneath it says OK. Click that and preview to make sure your image is posted.

NOW- About posting photos online. There are several free sites, such as Photobucket. However I started having problems and found a new site Postimage.org. Actually, most of my photos are posted on my Myspace account. Easy to upload, resize and store. I just go to a photo and choose "copy image location". Then I click on the image icon, shift/insert, OK. Viola!

I restored my first vehicle a few years back, its a 66 ford. Here is a link, my webserver is all messed up.
http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2494714600101948653sqHiPP

I rebuild the original radio,added a reverb unit to give me two speaker outputs, a power booser,fm converter and a mp3 wireless fm adapter. I can save my mp3s to a usb drive and play them in there. The wood sides from the truck came from lumber I salvaged from a old house. Dottie West the singer probably lived there when she was young from what I was told. My dad was Dotties cousin.

Other things I have done are to restore old woodworking stuff, vintage campers, old hand tools and anything I can fix up. To see pictures of the campers and other things I have fixed up check out here.

Fergies and fans. I have a TO-20 Ferguson tractor that my grandfather bought new three days before I was born. I also collect fans produced by the Bersted Manufacturing Division of McGraw-Edison in Boonville, Missouri. I worked in the plant where they were made.

352 FE, or Ford Edsel as they were called.I bought it from the original owner. The original owner sold the engine to a fellow, then he sold it to a salvage yard where I traced it to . It has been in True Blue trucks twice. Once was this shot and another was a story I wrote for them on how to recover the dash. I have had it since about 1980.

I love the FE series engins, I have two original 3X2 aluminum intake setups for them. I also have the 390-4 bbl in a 1966 Galixie.

I'll look through my old True Blue mags to find your truck.
I'll want you to autograph it! Very Happy

I never had anyone ask me for my autograph for something I have done. I have had before because I look like Steven King the writer. It gets old sometimes but its good when you meet your daughters boyfriends. As far as the True Blue magizines it was in the first few. It was in the readers rides and then the article on recovering a dash. I remember riding many a mile in those Galaxies, my dad had one. I had a uncle that in the 60s he had a used car lot. If a car had anything wrong he would pull it to his house. He had about 10 Galaxies lined up in a row. He had a nash bathtub,50s crown victoria, old 48-52 chevy trucks and a lot more. He had probably 100 or so cars. After he passed away my aunt got tired of people sneaking on the property and had them all crushed. Most of the cars today would have been reworking.

I restore other "stuff" besides radios Smile

Kitchen appliances: I've got a Sunbeam T-20B toaster that "magically" lowers and raises the toast silently and by itself, a 1960 GE pushbutton electric range that is currently under restoration, rebuilt and shined up my 1950s chrome dinette set. I also restore clocks, vintage telephones and......

My big project that has been ongoing since high school (I graduated in '99).....I hate rust!!!......

I've got a 1966 Galaxie I intend to restore now that I'm somewhat retired. I hate rust too, and get a lot of my sheetmetal parts from the southwest. Where do you live?
