I put up this thread to have a little winter fun with my fellow OSO members, maybe to see if they have some things they cherish and hold on to like I do.

For what particular reason do feel it is necessary to hijack this (or any other) thread to settle a personal score?
If you've got a problem, settle it via PM or e-mail, not out here on the GD.
To say I'm disgusted would be a gross understatement........

OK girls,take your little cat fight outside will ya,this could have been a great thread but oh nooooo,you two had ta start pissin in each others corn flakes

Old? I have a mantle clock in my house that came from my great great grandfather's house. It was built in 1737 or so near Boston. Works just fine but it does lose a minute or so a month. Its hard to believe that in nearly 300 years the only part that wore out was the hinge pin on the glass door you open to wind it. Wish boat parts or cars or electronics lasted like that. I have a 1968 johnson 25 hp that I run on my mini cat,starts 2nd pull every time and runs like a top. I had a 1966 MotoSki snowmobile but I sold it to a collector because he can give it a more pampered life than I could( theres only so much storage space) Old tools,ya,lots of those. The oldest would probably be a railroad spiking hammer used by my great grandfather while building the trans canada rail way. 25 lbs of steel and hickory. Must have been brutal swinging that thing all day. Good thread jafo,old stuff is cool

I have some hand made fishing lures I got from my grandmother when my grandfather died in 1972. They are WAY older than I am, and though they are worth a MINT, I just cant part with them. My grandfather and I were best buddies when I was a kid, and it's all I have to remember him.

Hey Jafo,
I apologize for stepping on your thread earlier, that guy just pisses me off!

I have two pocketwatches that my late father passed down to me. The first was my great grandfathers and is a 1907 Waltham.

The second was my Grandfathers and is a 1922 Illinois Railroad watch. Both watches still work!! I have no idea what they are worth, but would never sell them.

Craig, Nice pieces. I have a WWII training rifle that I got from my father. Still works. I have a large assortment of milk bottles from different dairies. My father was a door to door milkman until 1973. So yes I am the milkmans son

You guys go way back. Ours include an artificial christmas tree, my mothers mother. My favorite side of the family, some of her watches, and also a 1912 nickel. Oh, I remember me, mom and dad would always go to a play group thing on friday, I made a candle holder thing, a glass with colored tissue paper glued to it. I take it with us to church every year on christmas eve.

Other than that, were pretty much use it till a better one comes along, then get rid of it.
