"I wish you could too.  Today I would take $100 for them. I have more than that in the storage totes they are in, but winter is approaching and I need the room back. It's beginning to look like they may have to go to the dumpster!"

"Hi Becky,    I am really trying. My finances are really bad now. I am trying to sell nearly every thing I thought I would never sell. If you find another buyer you should sell. I'm sorry but I am in deep dodo. Take care, Mike O"

Hi Becky,

  I'm sorry to leave you hanging. We are having a flood and I may be in distress for some time. Tomorrow will be the final surge unless we get more rain before it passes. It was actually a few feet less than expected so I still have a house. I am sorry I have not been in better contact. Take care, Mike O

Sounds like you have already had to trash the mags.  If for some reason you have not, and they are still available, I would be interested in these issues:

Jul 77
Apr 78
Nov 78
Aug-Dec 82
Do you still have those issues and would you be interested in selling?  Cost?
