It's finally reached the point that my long-suffering Immediate Supervisor has put her foot down and refuses to let me bring anything more home. I've filled all the bookshelves at work, along with a small storage closet in my office, and I've hauled several large boxes of miscellaneous OS items to the "deep storage" in the back of the company's warehouse. Fellows, this is what happens to you when an Acquisition Disorder goes unchecked for too long a period of time!

It's likely a tie between (1) the kitchen spice rack with 6 bottles of nutmeg, oregano, cinnamon, etc. The bottles are the same design as the ca. late 1940s-early 1950s talc and after shave/cologne travel bottles and (2) a pair of the "England 02" mugs made by Wade Pottery during the 1970s and 1980s.

Ditto! So have you really stopped bringing new stuff home or have you rented space? Wink Thanks for sharing again, Ken!

What an astounding collection of red, white and blue, Ken!!
You should convert it into a museum and charge people $1 to come look and smell the vast array of memorabilia and donate the proceeds to charity, then you could keep accumulating to add to the collection and that way you would get no slack as it would go to a great cause! Hehe!
Again, beautiful to see a person with so much passion being applied to what they love! Great for you, sir!

Well... no wonder if your "Supervisor" will need to put you one like this:

On the other hand, you can open a museum and charge the entrance.

I don't know what to say. I've never seen anything like that.

All I can think of is thank you. I've put your pictures on my screen saver, and everytime my wife says something about me having to much shaving stuff, I will show her the pictures.

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well, I am the beholder. That's beautiful.

Bravo
