I have been buried in old stuff, sneezing. Old stuff sometimes makes me sneeze.
That Record Cleaner had most of you stumped the other day. It had me stumped for a long time too, I turned it every which way and even stood a board game inside of it. Then I said “Self.. think about it.” AND the light came on.
Some people actually used a record cleaner instead of just wiping them off on their jeans.
I am making a little headway. This display case is downstairs. 1970’s items are displayed in the bottom of the case.
“Stuff” is making it from my office into display shelves. That Mystic Hand Board is from the 1940’s and is considered a little rare. It was manufactured by Haskelite Manufacturing Corp. of Chicago IL it was popular before the Ouija Board. The Mystic Hand Wooden Planchet is in perfect condition.
The box is a little worse for the wear but the game is a great start to a collection of board games.
Did you notice the pin on the 1970’s jacket?
I had the meeting with the mucky mucks at the County. It went fine, the result will not be known until they have their budget meetings. I am cautiously hopeful that we will get some kind of increase and maybe new carpet for the foyer. The two new Commissioners even smiled at me…that is a first…perhaps it was the welcoming pretty picture of the Historical Museum Notecard I sent them after they were elected!
Three weeks and 2 days left, not that I am counting or anything. Since school started it is quiet in the building, so I can move right along making headway with all the “old stuff”:)
