Welcome to the forum, Al!

I was at 6 phones once too.  I put them in a room together and soon I had more.  They're prolific little devils.

Welcome, I'm a newbie here as well. I started out slow in the beginning, I now have close to 100 phones in my garage and a 1953 phone booth. Along with numerous other things, but that's a whole new story.

Awesome! Post some pics in the My Telephone Collection Display board.

Hi Al! Welcome! you have found the best forum on the net! There is much knowledge and experience here and people who are willing to share & help anytime. A warning about Phoneitis, it is a progressive and incurable disease, as has already been attested to. Your 6 phones will continue to proliferate. Soon you will be looking for more space to put them. Enjoy the madness!
