Don't you love it when you hit a good yard sale? I had so much to do this weekend and almost didn't go out treasure hunting.

Unlike most of the old cameras I buy, this one won't be repurposed into jewelry. It's still in great condition and will probably find a comfortable spot in my house. The old 6" Diamond paper cutter still slices right through a piece of paper.
I thought this hydrometer with its original wooden case was so interesting. I was told this one was used for measuring the density of milk. Just what every household needs.
Earthly Footsteps of the Man of Galilee. I love old books and couldn't pass this one up. It has some condition issues, but most of the 400 photographs are still in good shape.

I had to have this little booklet.

It will help us because we're so overworked. Darn, no alcohol?
It will help with our nervous disorders...
At least he acknowledged that men have their share of problems too.
