    FS Bailey of Hollywood, Winters Fedora

    Here is a nice Bailey winters Fedora in black. Nice, soft wool felt, worn a couple of times. I've switched to newsboy caps and no longer wear these type of hats. Size is medium, but is a bit large, so it will probably fit a 7 1/4". Paid $100, offered for $60 here plus shipping. Everything...

    Things You can't Do Anymore

    Pickleball Abandoned Well, last week I attempted to play pickleball once again since giving it up when the pandemic began. About 10 minutes in, I began to wonder about my decision. Aches and pains prevailed everywhere. My 76 year old body was protesting to my 26 year old mind. After a week...

    Raking Autumn's Produce

    (Originally written in 2015) I confess, I really don’t rake much anymore, in the truest sense of the word. I have a backpack blower that I use to gather up the “countless” leaf clutter each year into large piles. Then I do actually rake them onto canvass tarpaulins, approximately 16’ by 12’...

    Grand Daughter is becoming a "Reader"

    One of my Grand Daughters recently asked me if I had any Stephen King books. Being a very long term Stephen King fan, I told her I would look around for some. The problem was that I had sold most of the early works in a garage sale years ago. So, I bought her a copy of his latest, "Fairy...

    No Rhyme, No Reason

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is not the same as Tinker to Evers to Chance. So take a chance. After all, Knick-Knack-Paddy-Whack never really had the bone. Today, I have no cents, no sense, or no scents. And, I'm out of sorts.

    What are you doing to keep fit.........

    .........or get fitness back? Well, I've decided to attempt to return to playing pickleball again. I've got some physical prep to do before actually taking to the court, and I am beginning today. I played right up to the onset of the pandemic. Since then, I have spent most of the time...

    Harbor Freight tool cart modification

    For sometime now, I have wanted to do a modification on a Harbor Freight four or five drawer mechanic's tool cart. I saw a video online of a guy doing exactly what I wanted to do. So, when Harbor Freight recently put the carts on sale for 80 bucks off, I jumped on the deal and bought two of...

    Old Cars

    Old cars have always been a passion for me. I am speaking of an era of cars that were built in the last century, particularly in the thirties, forties and fifties. These cars were part of what is commonly called “Detroit Iron”. Cars that were made with heavy steel, more like tanks. The...

    The nutcracker Kings are holding court......

    All the nutcrackers in the photo were made in Germany. The companies making these are Steinbach, Ulbricht, Mueller, and Erzgebirge and the GDR. The green one in the middle has no company name, but the maker has marked his name on the bottom. This is the oldest nutcracker in my collection. I have...

    Life, or Look?

    Did your family subscribe? At one time, for a short time, we had both. I really liked them. Great pics and equally great articles. I think they may have been better entertainment than TV. Your brain had to work to read, absorb and think about what was there.

    A sad day for us

    Today, we had to say goodby to our Hogan. He was thirteen and had been deteriorating for several months. He went out on his morning rounds and Vija heard him crying. His back legs had gone out and he couldn't pick himself up. So, Vee called the vet and we took him for his last visit. We have...
