That 'box of junk' at the auction
I just got to chatting with Dave Mowitz here about some of the dumbest things we've ever done (a conversation Dave and I could have for months on end without stopping! Ha!). Got to talking about auctions and those infamous "junk boxes." I bet when I was a kid, I sifted through scores of those things that my granddad had bought, usually for a buck or 2, looking for something worth toting it back to the farm. But, alas, that never happened.
So, got me thinking: What's the most valuable thing you've ever found in one of those "junk boxes" after you got home from the sale? What about the most unusual or coolest thing?
