  13. scottvez, Reviewing your "Show & Tell" I can see why u would appreciate the artwork. It has shown me a part of my Father no 1 ever knew. Hoping 2 find a way 2 copy the pages w/o breaking the cre...
  14. This picture reminds me of my Grandfather’s house in Ricketts, Iowa. I have not been there since the late 60's, but plan on returning. Have "Google Earth" it numerous times & it has not changed si...
  15. He seldom spoke of this time. I doubted the game until I saw the scores in this diary.
  16. Earthling_, Thanks 4 ur input. 1 of my many desires is 2 learn Locksmithing. It is becoming a lost art, but there still are a lot of old safes & such that need to be opened. I find the whole conce...

  23. While @ in a Numismatic office I showed him this ash tray. During his examination his associate came out of his office, since he is a WWII buff. Neither had ever seen 1 of these & were intrigued by th...
