At Day At The Ball Game!

Had a chance to see The New Almaden Quicksilvers vs. Oakland Colonels today with some friends from the Spanish-American War group that I belong to. It was a nice change to go somewhere and just be a spectator for once. We watch a very intense game all the while eating peanuts and cracker jacks. Unfortunately the Oakland Colonels lost eight to five, but never the less it was a great game to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Put out that Light!

I have always be unconventional in my collecting habits. Finding strange things in second hand stores, musty old attics and the occasional antique store.

So it came as no surprise when I found this waterproof wax vestas box at one of the local dealers of lost items that my interest was peaked.

After doing a little digging around I found out that this small box crafted by Duncan's is probably from the forties in time frame. The company and it's product however date back to the earlier 1860's in Australia. It makes me wonder how it made its' way to United States and survived not being crushed or just plain thrown away.

I can just image the tales this little box could tell if it had the ability to form words and sentences.

Update to the site.

Just a quick little note. I did a little reorganizing of the site now that I hope to be updating on a regular schedule. Hope you like the new look. I even changed the logo as it was getting a bit out dated looking.

So on to the next adventure!
