Friends of mine, and readers of this blog (if there are any?) will know that I am renovating a 100 year old barn. It’s hard to tell how many generations have used the barn, but as I excate and renovate, I’ve found layers of old stuff. This is another barn archaeology find today. Its heavy and chrome. I believe its a 1950s football player. About two inches tall.
“Historical study is not to produce more entries for the central file or more trinkets for milord’s cabinet of curiosities. It is to stimulate thought, to assure us that there are things we do not know, things we must know, things capable of unsettling the world we inhabit.” – Henry Glassie
