Welcome to Sunday All Day Brunch. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. My grandnephew Tristen stopped by last week with his girlfriend. He wanted to introduce her to me and show off my place. He has introduced me before as his "kick ass Aunt." I think it is cool that he thinks this 66 year old lady still has what it takes to compete in this modern world. These are some of the things he was pointing out.

The spices
And more spices.
My etchings and photography.
My art wall
The front door that looks like a Tardis
The theme bathroom
Some of the dolls
The retro looking record player which is actually modern
The Joe Montana shrine
Some of my toys
The computer
His great granddad's flag and World War II medals
And his Great Great Granddad's catcher's mitt

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I also feel that an empty wall or space simply cries out for something to display! No bare walls in my home.

    I particularly love your displays of your forefathers. Still very much loved and present every day because you keep them in view. The catcher's mitt is priceless!

    It is over 100 years old. My Grandfather played semi-pro around the 1910's. Dad also played semi-pro until he blew out his shoulder as a teenager.

    Museums 101: Seaside Historical Society Museum (Photo Diary)

    There are many ways that local history groups can use in a local museum. One approach is to place the emphasis on a display of artifacts—old “stuff” that may be connected to the local community. In some cases, local museums simply display artifacts that are old and therefore must be important; in some cases there is an attempt to explain the artifacts and why they are important in understanding local history. At the other end of the spectrum are local history museums which place little emphasis on artifacts, but create displays which explain local history with an emphasis on explanation and local people. One of these small museums is the Seaside, Oregon, Historical Society Museum.
