He/she who dies with the most stuff wins, right? Hey, I have to rationalize it some way or seek therapy. I have an art collection web site, devoted mostly to paintings.

  2. Thank you dav2no1!
  3. Thanks for your comments MrMaglue! Always handy to have oil lamps on hand and they would also make good trade items, if there is some prolonged disaster. Just be sure to stock up on lamp oil or K1 ker...

  12. Nice. I used to run home from school to get home in time to watch Dark Shadows. Too bad the Ben Cross version only lasted one season. That was a great version.
  13. I love this. It may be my favorite of all of your glass animals.
  14. Thanks Vynil33rpm!
  15. Thanks MarmorealMaiden!

  19. Thanks for your comment vintagelamp. I consider it to be one of my mutant glass vases.
  20. Thanks for your comment vintagelamp! It was in a pile of assorted glass bits on the top shelf at a thrift shop I don't go to much anymore. I didn't know what it was when I reached up and pulled it out...

  22. Thank you Jenni and vintagelamp!
  23. Thank you vintagelamp!
  24. Thanks Karen. I was sure that I would get some feedback on this one! It is a fairly iconic shape in West Virginia 1950s glass.

  30. You are most welcome vintagelamp! I think the entire Ronald Howard series was on Amazon Prime not too long ago. I think I have it on DVD, too.
  31. Ronald Howard played Sherlock Holmes on TV in the 1950s. He was the son of actor Leslie Howard.
  32. Looks more like Ronald Howard than Basil Rathbone, I think...
  33. LOL! I am totally on the same page, Eileen. No skimping on hiking or motorcycling gear. Both involve much research and conversation.
  34. LOL. I attribute my time in Japan as a big part of how I form and maintain social relationships with people which is often confusing to Americans but makes perfect sense to me. On the opposite end ...
  35. Also:
  36. Thanks apostata! I found an interesting blog post by an American living in Japan with some additional links to other blog posts and several interesting/amusing comments.

  43. How I envy them. I spent a lot of time hiking in the Cascades and Olympics when I lived on the West Coast. You have to have a really well designed and made pack to carry that much weight. I often carr...
  44. Thanks for checking out my little Bovano plates Vynil33rpm, AnythingObscure, Alfie21, kivatinitz, Thomas, Jenni, fortapache and jscott0363!
