Wonderful post Dave, it brings back memories!   :054: :003:
"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington

“Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”   -John Adams

That's amazing. I just spent the better part of 30 minutes looking through those. One heck of a collection!

Corsicana, Texas. Belongs to a retired Western Electric employee named Don Capehart and his wife Rita. Supposedly the whole thing is for sale.

Hmmm.  We were in Corsicana today.  Wonder if they'd be interested in hiring an auctioneer?  This group could turn that into one heck of a party.   :011:
