Just took 5 minutes and walked around the house, my wife the basket weaver has 153 baskets of various sizes and shapes hanging or sitting on shelves everywhere!! I'm up to my asket in baskets! Does anyone else out there have a hobby that just takes over the whole place? These are only the ones that I can see, I know there are baskets in baskets but I ain't goin' to look for'em. She has easily given away or sold at least twice that many in the last two years. We gotta get out more often.

I went through a phase of miniature tea sets,
then I had to collect antique/dishes like I
saw in homes when I was growing up. I also have
3 framed poems by Maurine Hathaway (1930's?)
which I am very proud to have found in good condition.

Let's see.... Hmmm.. Mark collects antique canning jars, must have 500 or more. I collect old quilts. We both collect 30's and 40's kitchen utensils, crocks, Mission furniture, when a farm auction goes cheap enough, Watts bowls.... Then we also collect Deadcarp's stuff, mainly dust, cat and dog hair. (I useta glue it on Mark's head but he won't admit the hair was needed.) Oh yeah, and cookbooks! Gotta add a room just for all the junk. We are gourmet farm auction people. (That means if a buck will buy 10 boxes of junk for one good thing, we gotta do it!)

We collect the more usual things i guess - lint, dust, cat hair, garbage and we try to keep a minor ailment handy in case somebody says "we were thinking about stopping over tonite". Oh, alright i do collect firewood but by the time i cut & stack it, the stuff's barely fit to burn. Oops, forget all that - i have an assortment of chemistry experiments, the variety of which cover the rainbow. Right over there in the fridge! Wanna grab us another beer? :)

The "L" word is not allowed in our house!
and the count is now 166 I found some more. I guess this collecting is normal, it even sounds as though she may be a little behind the rest of you guys.....I hope she doesn't see this.
