        Yah um.... I hope not..... Another memory hit me last night when i was four or five my mom used to take care of this old guy that was blind and close to his death bed she would cook for him do laundry ect ect. One day he sent me under his old clawfoot tub in search of a coffee can he gave it to my mom for my college fund i think there was just over two grand in it.... He died a few days later... Probally my best score from under a tub...ironically that helped pay my first year of plumbing school thanks george

          I found a box full of 1960's Playboys in a craw space once.

              That can of Hamm's beer was made up here in St. Paul. Hamm's, from the the land of Sky Blue Waters. ) If I remember correctly, Hamm's went belly up. You can still get it, but it's made by someone else, somewhere else.

                  My grandparents had a bar up here when I was a kid and they lived upstairs of it over looking main street. Ahhhh the memories of sitting on the hot radiator watching the snow come down and the drunks coming in and out of the bar. And at night laying in bed looking at THE HUGE LIGHTED HAMMS SIGN OUTSIDE MY WINDOW!!! Those were the days, yup.
