Old & New

Well, here they are...the old and the new. This didn't fix my problem.........

Why Reinvent The Wheel?

So I guess that some of you have clued into the fact that I like old stuff. Junk if you will. Well the truth is, I do! I especially like when I find something home made or "garage built" as the hipsters like to say. So what does a guy do when his wife hands him a tin plate printed with a clock face and is asked, "Honey, would you make me a new clock?". Well a good husband goes into his shop and takes a look around for needed parts. A random unwanted clock will provide the guts, but what should he use for a back?

A quick look up on the shelf and the perfect solution is found! Why reinvent the wheel?

This is more than a cool old clock it is a period piece of home grown ingenuity and was sold at an estate sale I held last weekend.

Hockies of Torrance

Just another sample of the clutter in my life. Why do I keep all this junk?
