    Yup, I do too, not much of anything, but I have about a closet full. I had an uncle who used to collect seed caps. He said that some of them were actually worth money, and he'd never wear those.

    I enjoy collecting and restoring straight razors (and shaving with them). Best piece I have is a 195 year old Wade & Butcher.

    Very nearly finished another sketch, but it is too late to carry on tonight. Derived from a drawing by Wolfgang Willrich, there are some great Germanic artworks by him.

    The original and my effort.

    Still riding my fixed gear bike almost every day. I'm not a spandex warrior though. I'm one of those "scenesters" that wear skinny jeans, doc marten's, and plaid shirts when I ride. Here's the results from one of my Sunday rides. I typically do this ride three times a weekend combined with shorter rides after work during the week. Also another shot of my fixed gear bike. Single speeds are a workout where I live, it's a pretty hilly area. I've pretty much limited my meat intake to about once or twice a week. We have a weight watchers program at work now and I am dominating the group. 17.4 lbs lost in 4 weeks, almost 100 lbs since March of last year.

    Frank, that's awesome. Well done!

    I am also down 20 pounds, although it's taken a year. And I'm also diversifying my regular indoor gym regimen with bike rides. Here’s my new ride, purchased three weeks ago. Spring is in the air here and I am looking forward to plenty of bike riding with my wife and kids in the weeks and months ahead.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Thanks for posting your lantern, Larry. It sure is a beauty and in really nice shape. These old railroad lanterns are really neat. Did your grandfather work for PRR?
