I used to collect waterballs (snowglobes). I have about 50 of them down in my mother's basement awaiting the day when my husband will finally buy me a curio cabinet that my 5 year old cannot break into.

These days, I collect Duran Duran memorbilia. Concert programmes, tshirts, purses, glasses, pillowcases, and of course alot of vinyl records.

If you wanna know why, check out their photos. THUD!!!

I seem to collect cats. Why, I don't know, beyond three they serve absolutely no purpose other than to clutter up the room. :->

Actually, I collect sheet music at the moment. Which isn't exactly a hobby, but it's taking up quite a bit of space.

We're up to eight cats here with this bloody kitten (I'll post a pix of the 3 week old little trundle buss as soon as I find the cable to the computer).

Right now I'm dealing with "cat wants in...cat wants out" every five minutes in triplicate. Which means I just may skip my lunch plans for PB&J and go for some good ol' fashioned "Cat Stew".

Naughtyone, there's an old saying.

The easiest way to deal with moving is to throw everything out. It cuts down on truck expenses and back strain.

You guys are all really funny...  GL Nauty - moving is a beyotch.

Gemstones, quotes and teddy bears. I've had to slow down on the collectible bears cuz I have so many and they take up so much space. Plus they're essentially useless. At least with the quotes I always have something to say and gemstones are worth money...

sounds like us...the other have I spend hearing my wife "these @#$#$^#$" cats and "how am I gonna clean this @#$#[email protected] furniture?"


Oh, and we do the "I want in, I want out" thing...3 years ago we replaced our deck with a sun room...there was a door out to the deck which the cats used..the door is still there but we'd have to walk through the sunroom to let them out"  so we have to remind the stupid things that we haven't used that door for 4 years..

Then, there's one cat, my favorite (see PN) "Gizmo" who thinks she's a dog...follows me all over the house with Bear (the dog), greets me when I come home, and sleeps with me every night.  Loves potato chips...goes nuts when I'm eating them..and then there's chloe the 8 year old Maine Coon cat who will not eat out of a food bowl that is only half full...she'll scream at you until you fill it up...and stand on the edge of the bathtub while we take a shower..  My next favorite was "Cody" who disappeared several months ago...I have picks of her cuddling with the dog.

Jim, that reminds me of a Heinlein story called "The Door into Summer."

The hero of the book travels about with a cat as his sometime companion.  the cat (during winter) demands that all the doors in the house be opened regularly so he can check if summer is on the other side yet. The main character assumes he's looking for "the door into summer". :-)

One of my cats (Esther) was the best watch dog. If someone knocked on the door or rang the bell she growl. She hated everybody except me. She hit everybody but to me she was purrfect! Slept in arms everynight, met me at the door got really angry when I would bring out a suitcase for traveling. I had her for 19 years. Would take her nail and band on the food bowl for food or water. She like her wather warm HA!

Miss her,
