    Trip to Idaho and the famous Gus Collection

    By the way, there is an update on the mounting of the Union Jack. Maggie started to look at the possibility of unstitching it from the linen backing and reversing it, but when she started we realized the reason it was mounted the way it is.

    A new home for my collection

    12 October: a sad anniversary. But this year, a new heartbeat

    It is beginning to look like I collect spike helmets
