    The Cat's Best Finds for Decade

    In no particular order. I thought I'd chime in and post a few of my favorites here. It's kinda sad I can remember exactly where I found it and the day but not the YEAR.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Thanks! I have more pics. I apparently am going to have to rephotograph them, in the am! Just found a 17th century spur with Tommy Buckets. Haven't even posted it yet. Today I dug an old door key with the word "California" on it. I guess I own California now. Anyone want to buy it?

    More great finds. I appreciate the offer, but I just spent a boatload of money. I just bought some ocean front property in Arizona. The guy was great to deal with. He threw the Golden Gate in for free, just because I bought that. Bless his heart.
