    Collecter's Items

    Since some of you collect music instruments, I wonder if
    any of you collect other things. It could be rocks, old
    records, salt shakers, and more. I would like to hear
    you on that.

    Well Judy, I have quite a collection of teddy bears. I am not an avid collector, most I have been given over the years. I like the tatty teddie ornaments, and hope to get some more.

    Joyce used to collect bears too, still got some around.

    I've got some of my mothers wedding presents, china and glass mainly, from the 1920s. I also collect stamps, oldest of those probably dates to late 1850s.
    Cheers MIKE.

    I collect memories ...
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    I have a coin collection, and a collection of postcards from my trip to Europe a few years ago.

    Even though I don't have as a habit the collecting of old coins, I do have in my possession some really old ones - Funny though, how such items find their way into my vault.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Photos. I make a new album every time we have a hiliday, which is not often. Plus any specially events. Lots of the children and grandchildren etc. I am also caretaker of the family albums, some of which go back to Victorian times and were obviously taken on old plate cameras. Sadly not all of them were labeled so we do not known exactly who people were. I am experimenting with family portraits taken with a 60 year old Ilford Twin Lens Reflex camera in black and white and hope to make a gallery for the family archives.

    I like that CT, a good collection to have.

    I think most of us can relate to the bills Krummhorn.

    If I am feeling clever I try and collect my thoughts.

    I used to collect rocks, record albums, 45s, shells everytime
    my parents took me to Florida, ink pens, and CDs. Here I've
    seen people collect what I call do dads like figureines, trinkets,
    and memerbilia. Some collections make money like aluminum cans,
    pocket change, plastics, and other recyclables. I still have my
    collection of shells. I also started back collecting rocks. As
    for starters in that collection I have a new quartz crystal.

    I forgot to mention that I collect crochet hooks at different sizes,
    knitting at different sizes, and different yarns. I have one pair
    of knitting needles that are the size of a good pair of drumsticks.
    They even sound like drumsticks when I hit them together.
    Yarn, I have enough to start my own yarn store, I've collect so
    much of it. I also have a cloths hamper full of items I have all
    ready knitted and crocheted. I have four coffee pots too.
    One I use to brew tea since it's so small.

    I don't collect junk, it accumulates by itself.
    Cheers MIKE.
