At first glance, I thought this old magazine ad was suggesting that I should start a career in the exciting world of toilet seat repair. Back then, toilet seats were made of wood, and many were outdoors, so maybe they didn’t hold up as well as today’s plastic or lucite seats. Still, people were self-sufficient,… >Read More
Clearing some sticker bushes in the way back of our property, and dug up this HUGE shovel head. It must have been for moving… coal? sand? gravel? I don’t know… It would take a bigger man than me to use a shovel like that. Maybe it had something to do with the Green Giant.… >Read More
Drive around behind Mount Rushmore, it’s a handy navigational aid. But why are they naked? I found this at a garage sale yesterday, and put it in with the pile of other crap Teresa was toting. I wonder if the outfit that made this did other hilariously tacky plates? Collect them all!
Just moving some dirt down by the creek, and look who turns up. Lovable green and wrinkly Yoda. Don’t know how long he had been in the dirt, but he is in pretty good shape… … I ran him through the ultrasonic cleaner thing I got at a garage sale, maybe it loosened some of… >Read More

I am sort of disappointed that this nice tie with pictures of Walmart Semi Trucks on it went for the minimum bid on Listia. Everyone is too serious these days.
This was my dad’s ashtray that was next to his recliner, usually for cigar ashes. I remember when I was a kid, right around the time of the moon landing, I got an Estes model rocket catalog in the mail. So I made a pitch to invest in some of these highly educational and inexpensive… >Read More
We were dropping off stuff at the Goodwill the other day, so of course we had to drive around front, go in and buy more crap. On a whim, I vowed to find and purchase the weirdest item they had. Mission accomplished! A lamp with a western desert cactus shade, but a base reminiscent of… >Read More
