    kodak retinette 17 i believe. definitely a retinette (cause it's written on the back, not cause i'm the expert in these film things), not sure about the 17 (cause it's not written on the back). there's also a brownie hawkeye, starflash and reflex.

    the coffee cup is tea cup from japan, there's a dragon statue, some other statue of two guys carrying a woman and his air force dog tags. the frame is something my great grandmother put together of his wings, unit patches and stripes when he left the air force. not shown are 4 screen prints, a japanese fan and a letter opener.

    the toys are all there, between the books and the other stuff. easy access.

    Here's one not so well organized, maybe by topic except for the Ambrose book. Lots of maps on the left and mostly books on Montana and Glacier National Park. A few WWII titles.

    Two new contributions while I was sleeping, and both excellent. Beth, the photo is good, but I liked your description as well. Ralph, what's that thing with your name on it, bottom right?

    In our kitchen there are just a few of our cookbooks...my other hobby. We had to downsize big time when we move from a house to an apartment. A sacrifice that I really have enjoyed.

    Rob- That's a little certificate for skiing a 34 mile cross country ski race 30 years. I'm up to 34 years now and still going. You can see my story of this years race here: Ralph's Blog at Eagle River Nordic - AKA Ralph's Nordic Web

    What a wonderful collection of meaningful objects. That's what shelves were made for.

    Hamish,
    That looks more like a camera shelf than a bookshelf? ;)

    Another wonderfully eclectic mix there Rob and it looks like there are a couple of duplicates. Are they books that Susan has contributed to?

    And I recognise that card! :)

    Thought you might recognise the card - it's the exact same one.

    To be honest, I've forgotten half of what Susan has contributed to [doh] She is both industrious and quiet.
