Best Olive Green Day
"Honey, I have a surprise for you" he said as he walked through the door.
But I already found a cool treasure today! A really, really cool book, Rufus and Rose by Horatio Alger Jr. from the Ragged Dick Series 1898.
He tosses me this grubby old military bag. Wow, it's kind of heavy. What's in it? So I open it up and it's this World War 2 gas mask and yellow canister!!!
The hose is covered in fabric or is it just fabric? The canister is huge compared to the filters on gas mask today. Can't open the mask it's become some what tight from being stored and I'm afraid it may crack some of the fabric.
So he wins again! His treasure beat my treasure.
But that's Ok, it was a great olive green day!
Sometimes when you're out junking, you discover when you get home that you've actually been curating items that work great togethe...
