I've mentioned before that I used to collect toy cannons. Mostly Big Bang Carbide Cannons, but also black powder and firecracker. One of the cannons I purchased was a bronze reproduction of a very early firecracker cannon called the Home Guard Safety Cannon. Today I discovered that only 50 numbered...

Getting older every day; but so pretty still..
Since neither of these photos are of marbles, I'll post them here.
Summit Lions. Don't know how I started collecting Summit Lions. I have 14 in various colors and am still missing a few.
And this is just some of my Akroware. The rest are scattered...
Lotsa medium out there. Sketch/photography and collages...needless to say my house looks like the Michaels store.
I'm not a baker (and can only eat decadent in small amounts) so any recipe with these qualities usually a disaster, but I saw a recipe online for dark choco brownies with merlot and a semi-sweet merlot ganache and I caved. Oh my. Needs some tweaking but since I don't bake; don't really know which...
Not one of my better weeks so far.
I put down my 32 year old Arab gelding yesterday morning. We've been together for 30 years. He quit eating this past Saturday and Vet couldn't find anything obvious, so blood tests were ordered. His kidneys were failing. At his age and his other health...
I'm not much into them but this one is just so cool. Ruger vacaro. Too much off topic.
*Long* before I collected anything else, I collected stamps. Started collection when I was a kid and once I started my first job out of college and had a bit of extra spending money, I started going to stamp auctions. Mostly just stamps, but occasionally other stuff, including covers (envelopes and...

I just got back from Seattle today. I could not find a marble, and I even took one with me (Al said it would help). Of course, I didn't really get to go into any antique stores, so my options were going to be limited. I did find something "marble-ish" at Seattle Center. The Chilhuly museum had all...
Had a chance to take my old Hiawatha out between rain storms lately. Super smooth ride with the big tires and spring seat. I know powder coating isn't the correct paint for this ride, but I really like the color combo. I think this is a pre-war Hiawatha, but not completely certain. I think...
