A-Team Lunch Box with Thermos










This A-Team lunch box is made by Thermos and dates from 1983. It is unused. I pity the fool who did not have a little brother who carried his lunch to school in this thing for one day before it mysteriously disappeared!!!

Remarkably calm and passive birds



I keep hearing about a game called "Angry Birds" which is supposed to be a lot of fun. I personally enjoy my birds a little more low-key. This is a piece of fabric from the 1960's that I have kept for over 40 years. I don't know why.

"True Lies" Spy Camera






This is a "True Lies" movie promo "Spy Camera." This thing was a give-away to promote Jimmy Cameron's box office smash back in 1994. Sometimes circumstances make a piece of junk into poetic justice, as is the case with this one.

Pentagram Man And His Quest, London, 1967













Pentagram was published by Gerard Noel in an attempt to create serious discussion on various esoteric topics such as astrology, Wicca, and other slightly "off center" stuff. He also hosted the first "witchcraft" dinner in the modern era, in London in 1964.

One Old Cigarette Lighter






This one was made in Japan in the 1950's. It is Sterling silver, is tarnished to death, but has some very nice engraving.
