Bird convention at dawn

Turtles in a restaurant

And then a couple of days ago, I looked out the front door and saw this lady and her little girl trying to lure a dog, by throwing him some treats. Never seen that before. Come to find out later, that this dog sort of lives in the little park by our lake, and someone even put a dog house out there for him. … update..today the dog house wasn’t there, and I didn’t see any dogs, either. Maybe someone took him in to live with them. Hope so!

The lady never did get the dog to come any closer, even after trying for at least half an hour.

What’s in the Box? # 5

What’s in the Box? # 5

***

***

I have a lot of boxes out in the garage, and in my closet that have been there for a long time. I thought it might be interesting to have a look inside, and post what all I find.

Some of these boxes are my stored away things, and some are boxes of saved stuff from my parents and grand-parents. It should be fun to see these long lost treasures.

I’ll be posting a new revelation as often as possible, with a few pictures, up until I either get tired of it, or run out of stuff. There are a lot of things to look through.

Hope you enjoy my ‘show & tell’ series! 🙂

Let’s have a look!

This is a box of things my granny kept.

This is one of several vintage cigar boxes that were in some of the larger boxes I’ve been looking through. I think this is from the early 1930s.

Inside this cigar box I found…

  • Toy pistol & leather holster
  • 2 small turtle shells (in small pill box from 1935)
  • 2 rattlesnake rattles (In small pill box from 1935)
  • Antique Buster Brown Shoes tin whistle
  • 1933 – 4th Grade English workbook (my Dad’s) & large pencil

What’s interesting about the little pill box is that the druggist filling the prescription has the same name as my brother-in-law. Now, my BIL was not born until the 1950s, I believe, and has never been a druggist, though he is a CNA. How weird is this!

Over the weekend we went to the Science Spectrum. It is a fun place, which has lots of things to do and see. There are lots of interactive science related activities.We did see a reptile show, where the speaker showed us a chameleon, a boa constrictor, and a giant turtle. As we continued looking around, there were other turtles in their aquarium habitat. The first one is a giant snapping turtle. The fish were in an aquarium at a restaurant, but just to look at. I have a fish phobia, but managed to take a few photos.
