"Chase"...you didn't even wanna...

    Oldest Bottle in Collection

    The oldest bottle in my collection is actually a reportedly ancient demijohn. (did you know demijohn is taken from Persian?) I bought this maybe 15 or more years ago from a local collector. He told me at the time it was Persian and a rope or leather strap went below the collar so it could be...

    A fishing tale.

    I went fishing this morning but after a short time I ran out of worms. Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. Frogs are good bass bait. Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket...

    Cast Iron Eagle & Shield

    found this while taking pix in an old cemetery. There were some sections of wrought iron fencing scatered about so I guess this was attached to the gate...which was totally gone. I spotted it in a muddy area. A few more rains and cattle strolling through and it would have been buried. It's...

    Freeblown Wine..But ?

    Anyone familiar with this bottle? It has characteristics of a wine: push up base, barely discernible pontil, correct shape, laid on tooled ring...but it's clear and very thin - not at all heavy like most wines. Thoughts anyone?
