An afternoon of puttering
« on: January 12, 2020, 03:04:04 PM »
Decided to get some use out of some antique stuff I've had packed away for safekeeping over the years. So I hauled out the old kerosene lanterns, antique fish rods/reels/tackle from the 30's and 40's, old bait cans, outdoor mementos, pics, etc. Even found my Faribault wool blanket from the 50's my Dad would put down on the ground when we had lunch during fishing.
So of course, ended up re-doing the entire "man cave" downstairs....now it's like walking into a 1960's cabin up north!  Actually, just what I wanted!  That's what happens when ya start "puttering"...:azn:

Hey, I forgot about the jack a lope! Had one on the wall at the camp I used to go to!  I've heard Glenn is sometimes called that too... :rotflmao:
I'll leave the bovines out at Walmart. 🐄

Nice work, I really like some of this old stuff.  Well, for some of us it's just stuff we used.

Thanks guys. Just about every item brings back some type of good memory...of my Dad, past trips, etc.  It's my happy place of days gone by.  Always been kind of a sentimental hoarder of stuff.  :smiley:
