I've been married 36yrs now, we have 2 grown sons. life is good! :^D We collect lots of things, but pottery and glass mainly, with aluminum, couroc, and pocketknives, next in line!

Thanks to you all, friends, helping friends, and strangers alike with the things they love to collect! :^) (Read more)
