+1 lovely pieces!
Trying not to think of what I could have bought was it not for this and everything else that went along with it
This past weekend I bought this electronically restored 1929 RCA-Victor RE-45 radio-Electrola (phonograph)...
nice one, I as a phonograph / Edison cylinder player collector for about 25 years....
No more watches for a while, couldn't resist this
Absolutely nothing to do with the price of fish - certain that old phrase travels nowhere
Arrived today in time for our forthcoming travels and have to say mightily impressed -
Bluetooth connectivity speaker system, sound quality is amazing. Word of warning if anyone considers purchasing the list price is way above what you can actually pay with a little searching.
These arrived in a Timely manner :
And finally, the sought date in question, (at least by me )
My high school graduation date?
Granted, my graduation was unexpected, but collectable?
Seriously, moon landing I suppose, or something more "personal"?
I was hoping for personal exploit/conquest info, perhaps with photos, not general historical stuff.
By the way, good effort, Steve!
You're in luck!
How's this for utility in a vintage item? The 1969 calendar is the same as 2014!
Sorry, I had not yet started my exploits yet at that point, though I did get to watch the Apollo launches.
Here is more info for you.
Well I didn't buy this today, but it's the first chance I have had to sight it in since I picked it up:
Stopped by the Mexican Mennonite place to pick up some tortillas a couple of weeks ago (we have both Mexican and Amish around this area) and stopped into the gun store beside the taco place and picked up this Stoeger to replace my ancient Crossman 760 pump action pellet gun that I have had since I was 10 or 12 I think. It finally gave up the ghost last year, and I have been procrastinating getting something to replace it.
Although the scope was mounted they obviously didn't do anything more than that, because even at the 60 feet I have in my basement it was really out of whack. Didn't take long to sight in though and it shoots decent groups now!
NEWS FLASH: rodent population of southern Ontario plummits.......... film at 11:00
No he's pro-rodent. It's the cats that have to watch out.
Always figured he was a reasonable man, that just proves it.
Indeed this is for feral feline control more than anything....
Edit to add - took this photo this morning - thee bunnies in my neighbour's back yard...why the feral cats need to be controlled.
Crossman 760 are easy to rebuild works, especially for someone with watchmaking skills . Kits available for $10.
Little buggers are pretty comfortable around here too, no cats and I only unload the Crossman on tin cans.... these are all out the dining room window
If your feral cats are the size of the ones down here........well Al, you're gunna need a bigger gun
