1. my g'mas old hoe. light as a feather and sharp.
many a weed and not a few snakes met their end on the edge of this one.

2. my father's axe. nuff said.

3. the snug-up chain a friend gave me. it is 4 links of 3/8" chain with chain hooks on both ends. sure saves time when you hook up something with a long chain.

4. road flares. saved my life one night. wont go anywhere without them.

5. go bag -- this is what we keep in the truck in the winter, and in the closet the rest of the time. it has those things you need when you got to get away. some cash- some grub- a few blankets-
some 1st aid stuff.

6. aw heck- ya'll got some too i bet.

A 4-inch crescent wrench with the jaws slightly filed so's to open up to 9/16". Been in my pocket for over 35 years and will stay there till they bury me. Saved many trips back to the tool box.

1. Maw's cotton batts that she used to cord cotton for quilting. (It still has a wisp of cotton caught in the teeth.)
2. Mama's ugly ole black purse. She loved it because it was given to her.
3. An ugly cup and saucer that belonged to the great aunt I never knew.
4. A pair of tacky and tarnished ear rings belonged to my sister.
5. A Spiro Agnew watch belonged to my brother.

Funny what we hang onto.. Me, sittin here feeling nostalgic..
