>>>Isn't it amazing how time can transform 'junk' into precious historical
artifacts? Sheesh! So, how did the candle holder turn out?<<<
I once had a chance to get a case of the old LOG CABIN -- from when they
came in little tin log cabins. I figured they had spoiled and did not take
up the opportunity. And there was a box of "give-away" Red Ryder BB gun
camping handbooks, but I had one and so I let that go. Plus there were some
old, old Coke bottles. ALL FOR FREE -- they were tearing down a cousin's
old store. Sighhh...
I did get one handmade nail.

PS To make this semi-trail related: There was the old gent who offered me a
ride. He then said he lived a few miles farther on and that he would be
glad to have me for dinner. I politely turned him down. His car was beat
up. He was wearing raggedy man clothes. And I figured he barely had a pot
to pee in. So I did not want to eat his last good crumb. & I told him I
was in a hurry to get up the trail and pitch my camp at a scenic spot.
I later found out that he had probably been fishing or hunting or something.
His regular car was a Bently (sp?). I wonder what gourmet treat I missed?
