I was sorting through some pictures I took this fall and came across a few from the rummage sale that preceded the sale of my parents home.
This is one of two clocks I made for Christmas sometime between 5th and 8th grade. One in the shape of our beagle Duke went to my sister C; this one went to K. I drew the designs myself, which is a miracle because I can't draw worth a damn. I cut them out on a band saw, painted and varnished them, and installed the clock mechanisms (which never worked very well).
These next two are pictures of my childhood bike, a Schwinn Stingray II in green and gold. I picked it out because it reminded me of the Green Bay Packers.
This next one is current, a shot of a do-it-yourself DVD vending machine in a local store. They've popped up here and there, and they remind me of a clunky Beta (?) video vending machine from the Sun Foods of my youth.
Here's Smiley at the rummage sale:

and the prettiest pic for last. The beautiful Lump:
