When I was younger I collected the traditional favorites...coins, stamps, baseball cards, etc. I began collecting records while I worked in radio. At one point I had more than 15,000 albums. I finally decided to specialize in Kansas and Kansas City music. I lost my collection in the Board walk fire, but I've managed to replace much of what I lost., Unfortuately, many of the things I lost were one of a kind recordings that will never be heard again.

My current collection of Kansas and Kansas City music has many rare recordings, posters and band photos.

I collect aquarium ornaments, and some somewhat realistic looking ceramic fish to go with them. Those were all made in Japan. I have quite a few ornaments from various time periods and countries. I have a couple that I believe are from before 1900, a few from Germany that are from before WW II, and a few more that were made in Japan after WW II. All from Ebay, of course.

There are castles, a Roman aqueduct, fake mountains, an Art Deco arch, and at least one defies description, but it's very old, from before 1900, I've seen illustrations of a similar one in publications from about 1860. I even have a replica of the Parthenon in Greece.

And, they look very beautiful in front of my aquariums. Not a single one of them is inside an aquarium!

Why?

My question is what kind of egg opener do you have?
The one like the cigar cutter or the one with the long stem handle?

I've collected many things over the years. I just don't remember where any of them are now.

Old military rifles. I will probably be kicking myself for passing up an original but in great shape Krag that was going for under $800. Good, functioning Krags are getting hard to find and 1903's are starting to follow suit.
