  1. Oh, Collector, that was Julie of Bedford. She later told me that when her mother picked her up in London, instead of taking her home, she took her straight to a detox ! Wise move that !! LOL !!
  2. Collector, I can ask around. I've got 3-5 of mine (U.S.), but like most people I know, we would be afraid of ID theft from us living. Might be a bit awkward. Hey, (?), do you have any old relative's p...
  3. These are souvenir items sold at probably every battle site in the world. Just a memory at a glance.
  4. Was the lady under 5 yrs. old ? I'm not sure when those plugs started being used, but my guess would be around the 50's (that's not 1850's). I have always used real wood pegs as doing countersinks, sc...
  5. Does't look old to me & the pegs are more of a modern decorative style. Sorry.
  6. It's a replica of a replica caricature Civil War cannon.
  7. WELL, I'm impressed ! I also like working dark wood. Nice job.
  8. Typical mid-eastern that at 1st, I almost dismissed as for the tourist trade. A closer look & it appears that these are may be the real thing. Not my area of research, but maybe others here may help. ...
  9. Have another beer, take a toke, & it might become clear. Key word is, "might". Hey, it works for me "sometimes". LOL!!
  10. What have you come up with now ?!! Guess there are more imaginative people out there than me !
  11. I can't remember exactly when I quit. I consider that a good sign. Of course, I can't remember what I am in a store for either ! Sorry. Just the joker in me. I've lost friends to "C" & know how cruel ...
  12. Cad, you aren't supposed to laminate your SS card. Penalty is probably water-boarding !! Play safe & keep your finger nails trimmed real close too ! LOL!!
  13. I see nothing that would qualify as a French fleur de lis, but do see several chrysanthemums. Maybe Japanese military award.
  14. .32 rimfire was a very commonly used caliber in the late 1800's. Usually small pistols or short barreled guns. That period birthed a number of these rimfires that curse us collectors. There was .44, ....
  15. Didn't fall for it, eh ? LOL!
  16. Are you referring to U.S. procedure ? Most recent I am familiar with were all 3 British. Passports lost when boats sank in hurricanes. Arrangements were coordinated with SXM immigration. Went thru th...
  17. Hey! This is pure Dutch. Pilgrim ? "Me not thinks so ". Scene: probably late 1700's. (Because the glass is not too wavy).
  18. Down load on to a PC & make them right. People are always dumping pix directly on CW from phones & I doubt it 1 out of 6 turns out right. I normally don't even look at things posted that way. Have a n...
  19. I'm wondering if this is telescoping & just frozen-up with wax & maybe dents. That would explain the "very bottom heavy". Alcohol dissolves wax but may take awhile in this case. Now that I've probabl...
  20. I've looked back over what you have posted for us to enjoy. You do know that this is probably a Hutchinson bottle ?
  21. I rarely clk. on oriental things, but this I really like ! I'm impressed!
  22. The 1st ones had interlocking slats. Didn't take long obviously before it was realized that it was much easier & cheaper to simply staple simple slates to canvas & achieve the same effect. I'm not an ...
  23. I didn't like all disco, but really luv'd a lot of it. Of course, one had to know the crowd they were talking to back then before admitting it. Kind of like wire walking.
  24. I was going to comment on how good technology was in those days that gravity was defied & wondering if it worked on the contents of the cooler also ? Of course you wouldn't want a real high ceiling if...
  25. I'M HERE !! LOL!
  26. For seeing the plane, sounds like a nite flight was a good choice. Sounds like we keep out planes in better order. In the air, lightning should just pass thru without affecting anything. Have seen min...
  27. You are young ! I don't even bother to look hardly anymore. I do listen to the sound of the engines for possible trouble.
  28. I didn't mean to say there was "no safe money in aviation". Well, maybe I did !! LOL!! At the time, I meant to say that there wasn't big money in aviation.
  29. Truly impressive as I remember & hope time has been kind to it.
  30. Don't think you could get me to crawl out on that rock on hands & knees !! LOL!! I worked for a Piper dealer in the 60's, got my inspector's license & went solo until I realized there was no safe mon...
  31. 13 m x 109 m long. Saw it as a kid. The painting blends in well with artifacts & ground layout. very well done as I remember. I did just see that it is no longer the largest oil painting. Hope the loc...
  32. Not as P.I.C. since they butterflied me in Martinique so they could play with my heart for awhile. I still fly right seat & on my Sunday Hash Brownie Tours . LOL! Strange that I don't think twice abou...
  33. This is the cyclorama of the battle & located in Atlanta. Largest oil painting in the world & painted in 1886-7. Well worth seeing.
  34. That gives me shivers ! I fly all the time but hate heights, like this & tall ladders. Strange, eh ? If I don't like what a pilot is doing, I'll take control in a heart beat!
  35. It's about a 4 yr. review of some guy. Not very interesting that I can see.
  36. "Ratchets", or cams ? An offset cam would be a good design. Fast & secure.
  37. Apparently cow horn & asian.
  38. I've known a number of people from diff. countries who lose passports (usually due to hurricanes) & their countries issue "One time travel" permits to return to that country. The application is to be...
  39. Thanks Mike. Appreciate it, but I live in Dutch territory & can ask around, LOL!! If I have no luck, I'll let you know. Still surprises me that I've never heard of them.
  40. I just put you on my FOLLOW list. Have to admit, that you & your knowledge have impressed me for quite some time. Thanks.
  41. That's fantastic Mike ! Where did you pick that up? I want to be reincarnated as a 17th cent. barmaid !! I never see level marked glasses, but will look for them now! Thanks for the knowledge !
  42. Vintage. I didn't know anybody missed my comments ! I thought they were avoided !! LOL!! I'm like several others on CW. Recovering. Infection for months & finally surgery on a toe. Shit like that kind...
  43. I'm being unfair giving credit to just islanders. The "civilized world" chases these herbal cures & plagiarize the findings as their own. Then, they start throwing chemicals together & often hurt or k...
  44. All of them. I know the painting. May have ridden the roan.
  45. Saved my life several times & charge next to nothing, if anything at all. How much does your licensed medicine-man charge & your registered druggist ?
  46. Maybe ! Islanders have a herb cure for everything. And they work ! Saved my life several times.
  47. These, I classify as really fine art. Thanks.
  48. Very nice. I wonder why the guy is wearing a breast plate in a garden & wonder what she is sipping ?
  49. I know this one.
  50. LOL!! We have all sorts of cures that don't have alcohol. I learned decades ago that island herbal cures often work much better than the "white man's magic" !! Often a herb you know under certain name...
