    Know nothing about this & think it was left by a Belgie/dutch girlfriend yrs ago. Wood, unlined & in excellent condition. Very well done. Does anybody have an idea?
    The category selection of this site just doesn't leave it open for a lot of things we have and I have noticed I'm not the only one who has problems finding a suitable category.

      You can have it if you want it but I've spent money sending free stuff to people & can't continue that. Know anybody coming this way who can pick it up?

      Where do you live? We have people wasting money to come to SXM & I have friends that travel. Cost is prohibitive from here but may be cheap from near your area.
      Bellin, simple as this. I had aortic valve replacement 2 1/2 yrs ago & know that pig valve is only good for about 15 yrs. I got to looking at what I have collected over the yrs & realize that when my birth certificate expires, the wogs or going to throw my stuff away or sell to buy crack.I had rather give it away to people that would appreciate it! It's just not practical because of where I live. Most of this stuff I have had long enough where I won't miss it.
      Don't start reading depressive or something else into it. I'm just realistic & don't really need this stuff anymore & would rather it be in hands that would appreciate it. The collector's market is so low that it isn't practical to market considering the shipping cost. I'm just being realistic.

      Bellin, you're going to have to take more than that! Look at what I've posted & what I post in the next week & tell me what you want. My sister doesn't need this stuff or would appreciate it & I don't like her kids. I'm single off & on & the "ons" don't deserve anything.
      I probably have another 10-15 yrs but really don't need this "stuff" & the market value is an insult. I would rather give it away than sell at insulting prices!

      Are you putting a curse on me? The last thing I want to be ,is 150 yrs old! I'm OK now because I'm not french! Please lift your curse.

      Still have to figure a way to get it.

      BELLIN, have friend from CO coming down between Dec. & March to take some of this junk up to sell on ebay. With the economy the way it is I don't expect anything. I could ask him to send to you & you settle the postage with him. Will need address when time comes.

      Hey blunderbuss2,
      Since you are cleaning house, I want to lay claim to your"junk draw items"!lol, That posting kept me fascinated for a while! I loved the stories behind the items....I agree with Bellin, you have many years ahead, especially living in a tropical paradise! That has to add years to your life. Thrifty

      I feel great T-G & supposed to be good for the life span of that pig's valve. Maybe I should have asked if it was a young pig? Feel like I should have a pic of that pig to carry in my wallet. How long do pigs live anyway? I'm going to have to google that.
    12. Manikin Manikin, 11 years ago
      Blunder as a pig farmer I can say life span of a pig is about 15 years . But the valve in you is part of you now not the pig so you have endless amount of time . Take it from a Nam Nurse and still a nurse your valve will last long time ! Just keep busy and exercise . Pigs are lazy I think they die from laying around so much in a mud hole and eating to much :-) Stay well ! We love your posts too

      Mani, I'm going to go with your opinion because I want to believe it. They told me in Martinique, 15-20. Googling says 10-15. Merci for the input.

      Making sure I have the right address to send that box to. Damned, it's already packed! ?? Hampton, MO? It's coming to Uncle Sambo's Plantation tomorrow & will soon be mailed to you.
