149/365+1:Airport


149/365+1:Airport, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

Seriously, I wish y'all would come over. I have some fun stuff to play with.
I look at other people's houses, all minimalist and sleek, and I think to myself, "WOW! How clean! How neat!" Our house is full of stuff. But every single piece of the stuff means something to us. People love to give me airplanes, and there's a reason for that. I have a real fondness for travel. Recently a dear friend of mine who is a professor at one of the local institutes of higher learning gave me this copper music box, which has an airplane that flies around the outside and back into the hangar. It plays "Around the World in Eighty Days" with that peculiar plink-plink that only a music box can produce.
I love this thing.

That is very cool. I have always wanted to come visit you because your house is full of cool stuff and you take great pictures of all of it. I like the way light slides around your floors.
