jedwis said...

jedwis said...

KK... Is that you? You changed your picture thingy?

Toad said...

Hey Ya'All, I bought about 350 OLD miniatures of booze at an auction Saturday. I have yet to check them out. NEAT stuff.

kkdither said...

Toad, are they drinkable? Were they airline bottles? How old are they? You DO know we have an upcoming get together.... hmmmm.

OrbsCorbs said...

Do you collect them. Toad? I know drew collects beer cans.

Sorry, jedwis, I often have to take the fifth.

Happy Monday and Tuesday everybody.

OrbsCorbs said...

Oh, and thank you, kk (I assume), for putting up the JTI Halloween pumpkin.

Good idea, KK!

KK, I can't find a place to set them down In the house, so I am not certain where they all came from, but they are old. They all have the Tax ribbon over the tops, and the WI. sticker on them. I really bought them kinda without looking at them much, because I didn't want to give my hand. I thought they only had 2 boxes of them from the photos on the web, but when I got to the auction they had 6 of them. I really don't collect them, but I have always kind of liked miniatures. They are all full, except for some evaporation, which I don't understand. I certainly won't be opening them. I will let you know If any airline bottles exist. I realize saying I don't have any place to set them down sounds funny, but If you saw this house, and all the STUFF I pick up you would die laughing. If by chance your looking for something, let me know. I probably have It, or will find It.

Orb's, Not really. Just like them, and I only had a couple dozen of them. What's better than 3 or 4 hundred miniatures? I KNOW, A fifth. LOL Hearing the words "A fifth" brings up good memories of my mom and dad. They were always running to the store for "A fifth"

kkdither said...

Not looking for anything specific, Toad. I am not a collector... I have enough crap and should be selling it off, myself.

I do know that when Midwest Airlines went out of business, they sold off all their supplies, their china, all things monogrammed, etc. There was a big market for that stuff.

I remember as a kid that my parents would occasionally bring home miniatures from the bar. They would give them to me to play with. I would play bar, setting up the bottles, "serving" drinks, etc. There was usually some 7-up or ginger ale available for actual consumption.

I'm sure that would be politically incorrect now, but I had fun. Geez, I haven't thought of that in over 50 years. Thanks, Toad. I love remembering little tidbits about my past, especially the early years. They are like small cracks I can peer through back into time.
