The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Flea Market Finds


Anyone have one of these as I child?  I didn't but I'm sure they were fun.

This accordion was a beauty and sounded very nice too.  At one time I could play an accordion...kind of.

I've not seen a bicycle quite like this one.  Smaller size, hard rubber tires, lever brake and the front sprocket with every other tooth means it is quite old, turn of the century.  The last century.  Yes, the seat is missing.

  5. The red gizmo at the top I have never seen. It must have had a very small distribution. The old bike is interesting too as I've never seen anything like it. You have some interesting adventures.
