    What's Kept Me Away, These Past Few Months.

    As many of you know, I've been missing for a good six months, or so. I've been working on remodeling a foreclosed home to live in. It was built in 1933, but unfortunately was completely remodeled, in 1996. There really wasn't anything original left to save, so all I could do was try...

    Get Well Soon, HoosierDaddy.

    I hope that I am not overstepping any boundaries with our friend HD, here. I just found out a little while ago that he had a stroke. I haven't heard anything from him, but he posted on Facebook, which I'm glad he's at least well enough to do that. I wanted to let everyone know, so...

    Back to the Bones: Restoring 50's Homes.

    Interesting article on a couple who brought their home back to its original glory. They also spoke with Pam from Retro Renovation. Here's hoping more and more folks show interest in restoration, rather than remuddling...

    In the Market for a New Hat.

    Hi all, I've been trying to save up a little money for a new hat. I have quite a few fedoras, but none of them are of the thin-ribbon variety. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Stratoliner or an Open Road. I'm not the type of guy who has to have that particular brand. I'm...

    Brewery Collecting

    A very popular hobby, especially in Brew City, Milwaukee, in the 1970's. My father started collecting cans in 1972 and by the late 80's had a nice collection of antique lithographs, bottles, cans, and other breweriana. In 1994, my folks sold the collection to buy some real estate they...

    FS: Raffinati DB Suit 44R

    Picked this suit up, because I really liked it. Unfortunately, the pants are too short, and I don't feel like having any work done to it. The jacket says 44R on the tag and the pants say 38" waist. I had them on, and would guess the inseam is somewhere around a 29 or a 30. Did a...

    FS: Vintage Mallory Fedora 7 1/8

    Hat is in overall good shape; no damage to the felt, moth holes, etc. The only problem I see cosmetically is that the ribbon is wrinkled, should iron out. Liner is complete, and in fair condition. Does have some stains, guessing somebody was a pomade user. Sweat is also in fair to good...

    FS: Sixties Stevens 3X Beaver - Size 7 - $15

    This hat is in great shape and appears to have been barely worn. The sweat band shows only some very light wear at the front where the name P. Sharpee is on it, there are also a 2 wrinkles in the sweat near the front. Those were the only issues I could find with the condition of this hat...

    Polka Fans of the Lounge

    Hey all. I'm a big Polka fan. Being from Milwaukee originally, I think it's in the blood. They're tradition around here, especially at weddings. The Milwaukee area has many Polka halls and stations that still play the music. Even out here, we have a few stations that play it, especially in...

    Wunnerful, Wunnerful: The Champagne Music Thread.

    Calling all fans of Mr. Lawrence Welk! I was discussing in the 'What Are You Listening To' thread that I am a Lawrence Welk fan. The show may be hokey, but it's good, clean family fun. To top it off, it kept real music in homes much longer than most radio stations did. I still watch the...
