Shells and Stones

I've never been one to collect things. Now, those that love me and even a few others might say I tend to collect junk. In my eyes, that doesn't count. I collected baseball cards once, but ventured off to college, and Mom trashed them. Those classic cards with Williams, Mantle and Mays in classic swing poses gone forever. I collected pennies too, for awhile. I had 4 or 5 of books of slotted cent pieces, many really old ones. Couldn't locate them when I returned from my four years of higher education. Mom? My collection of silver dollars, started by my grandfather and continued by me? Missing in action. These days, I don't walk beaches here or in Florida on vacation collecting shells, sea glass or other trinkets. I've learned my lesson about collections and higher education though.
Kids, don't go off to college!
Stay home and protect your stuff.!

  1. Yeah, he's goes away, I throw out some old glass bottles in the garage, he comes back and the glass bottles are back on the garage shelf.
    He needs to go away until the garbage man comes.

  3. Ha, I don't collect anything either. I've cleaned up after too many dead relatives whose "treasures" ended up in a dumpster. I got too much stuff anyway.

  4. I collect collections! I recently read that it's a mental problem and has something to do with wanting to leave a tracks.. Why not?I don't care! I think to add things to things add value to them and give them meaning. And if a collection is missing, I start an other one.

  8. Very funny. I'm rethinking this whole education thing myself. Not only do people take your stuff while you are filling your brain but think about education: You go to college to learn. You study and you learn. The more you study the more you learn. Problem is the more you learn the more you forget so why study?
