It isn’t unusual for people to have hobbies. Collecting stuff seems to be a hobby that many enjoy. Stuff is maybe the wrong word but it is the only one that comes to mind. This car is covered with objects that people collected. There are plates, and shot glasses and dolls on it that say Minnesota. There is a mosaic of a Minnesota loon, china plates, and all types of items that someone purchased for reasons that I don’t understand.
In this case the collection is not as unusual as the way it is displayed, or where it is displayed. I kind of like it. I never really understood having a collection. At times I collect parking tickets on my car, an occupational hazard and business expense I associate with having listings in downtown Saint Paul.
I know people who collect beanie babies, or maybe they don’t any more. I remember in the 80’s people would collect those little figurines, I can’t remember what they are called. In my case I guess I am more into losing things and I can’t imagine having one more item in my home that needs to be dusted. Everything that is already in the house is dusty.
We let the antique chandelier in the dining room collect dust until Halloween because it looks neat with cobwebs on if and then we dust it before thanksgiving so our guests don’t worry about dust falling on the turkey. Everything else is dusty because we had to let the maid go, which was hard to do because we never had one.
I guess a dog, a cat a couple of kids and a house with a white picket fence, we really do have a house with a white picket fence, that needs paint, not the house the fence, is as much as I could ever handle. I think the cat is dusty too.
Have a great weekend. The stock market will be closed so not much can go wrong. We have an impressive collection of homes on the market. This might be a great time to buy one. They come in handy for parking cars in front of, and are a great place to store collections.
