    I constantly buy T shirts with prints, logos, etc., and they always seem to fit in my wardrobe, nicely ironed.
    Then I discover I just cleaned the BBQ with my favourite T shirt.......

    My crazed obsession is collecting Panapet Panasonic ball radios from 70's, all in working condition.
    Many didn't survive the 70's from falling off the handle bars of Malvern Star Dragsters, IMG_091 Panapet.jpg

    This is my favourite Kodak Camera (considering the rest in the collection are 126 Instamatics it's hardly surprising). Nearly a century old, you can still buy film for it and I have used it relatively recently. Works perfectly.

    Primary school memories. And the year 1968 was the last year we played marbles at school. After that another school and it was all handball during the breaks.

    Primary school, for me, was in Victoria.
    Not a lot of asphalt or concrete around the school grounds...
    We did have a footy oval and the outside was dirt, which was perfect for setting up “alleys”.
    Marbles was the go to for those of us that weren’t footballers or cricketers....

    I am starting my grand daughter on collecting snow globes. I bought some back from my recent Route 66 trip.
    globes.jpg

    Customs in the US had a problem with the one from Chicago - they went over it a few times and wiped it to make sure it had not been tampered with and explosive liquid added or whatever they were checking for - she even wandered off and asked her supervisor but it was still in the bubblewrap and the box it came in from the top of Sears Tower - it was very heavy though. The tall one next to it is not a regular snow globe - its a Tornado - you shake it and a tornado or twister forms - its cool to watch.
