An unfortunate name for a man that sells adventure. From 1929. I look for the humor in things, fortunately old advertisements offer an almost inexhaustible supply. I can believe that I am the only one to make this connection. How many husbands came home to announce "Guess what everyone!? We're going on a Boring cruise!"
A tip of the hat to Elon Musk for naming his tunnel digging company "The Boring Company." I see what you did there.

From the booklet "The 12 Healers" by Physician Edward Bach in 1933. These are best read with an English accent and should be considered for a Python-esque skit. #found #herbalism #books #humor #cure #montypython #urbanarcheology #1933

Almost a Hoard, but definitely a dig! (video)

Fall is a prime season for estate paling and this weekend is no different. If you're willing to travel it could be worth the trip no matter what you are looking for.  In this video I document briefly a sale in Western CT, Danbury to exact. I found what I was looking for...

Oh crap! I'm a collector! I found these thinking I would turn them around to a friend of mine for a quick mini profit. After doing a little research and learning that Dorothy Kindell was called the "Naughty Potter" from Latina Hills CA. And that this is only half the set.... I can't sell them! I need to find the other 3. #found #pottery #kindell #1950s #art #stripper #naughty #cool #rare #estatesale #urbanarcheology

Found during a dig....1956 summons from the Bronx. The infraction? DIRTY SIDEWALK! The reverse listing of all the other infraction is just as enjoyable....still trying to figure how someone "retards" traffic. I find all traffic retarded. #oldpaper #estatesale #found #police #ticket #summons #bronx #whydoesinstagramshadowbanme
