I learned something this AM.- and solved another puzzle--, on looking at the Skates --the design particularly the upcurved front--(Clog Pic, have my Poplar Blanks now)

Also--for you, a Face Powder box, from the same era--which I found in proximity--connecting the two--same home, same time--

P.S.--Lift the cover and it plays a tune, whilst putting on the powder--;):)

I learned on skates like that behind a kitchen chair! No such luck this year! 50 degrees and raining!

Darn, where's my Colt .44 Army!!??--Missus must have put it Up where I can find it--chuckle.

The fireplace has a lead pot on the side, a gang mold (.44cal) warming up--drops a dozen at the time--really love BP.

Enfield 1858--Parker-Hale Reissue not reproduction, they got the origional gauges, prints etc out of the Tower of London and remade some back in the '80's.

Bought a Two Band in the '80's, at first, shooting traditional Minies' would splatter them all over a barn side--Hmmmm says Me-- ordered an Enfield -Pritchett mold from Dixie Gunworks--Will take a Gnat off a Chiggers Rear at 200 yds now.

Favorite arm with CSA Snipers.

"The Fair"-- a Play in at least, One Part--;)--Alabama, c.50's

Much activity amongst us, at 10 yrs old, working and planning--Returnable bottles, 2 cents , whiskey bottles 10 cent the pint, rake leaves, 25 cents the hour--

All in anticipation of seeing the WWII Spotlights signal, --the Fair Is Open!--could see them for ten miles.

We organized , the best Shooters went to the Galleries , in quest of the Horse Clock, the Cardsharps went after the Hawkers--the ball players went after the Milk Bottle Throw--and basketball expertise went to the Ring Throws--

The Communications Section went about , fast, picking up info as to how one gets ripped off--and reports back--

Intermission--

"Humans love to be given Puzzles", there is little escape"

Anyone who loves adventure, another challenge, most 'Oft Scary--comes out on the other side, a better educated person.
