Today it's from under the sea...
It's really my wife's hobby...   Salt water tanks.
This is her fifth tank I think she's had and now our only one... A little Nano Reef Tank
It's stockpiled with different corrals and mushrooms and two fish.
Keeping Aquariums has been a passion for people for hundreds of years and now with the technology of today, we can keep salt water based fish and animals at home.  If you're into it, it's a hobby that will keep you entertained for years.... thought you'd enjoy seeing a peek of the undersea world...

I just got this set to get my leather working tools a little more advance.
This is  a set of edgers from Craftsman.
It's a complete set from 1 to 5, with 1 being the smallest.
These have a unique edge to them if you've seen the Osborne or craft tools
I don't know a lot about the company, but they seem very well made.
Made in Japan...
Ready to do some leather edging.  I've just started getting into leather work and it's nice to have a whole set of sizes.  Pick up some leather tools and give it a try... it's fun.

Today it's another Zippo....
I found this one at a thrift store for $4.00....   
It's a cool one I didn't know they made... It's all Copper!
Except for the guts of the lighter....  I think this one is from 2003.
The Patina should really look great in a few years....  
I thought it was an old brass one at first, but I really like the Copper look of it.
Even if you don't smoke, own a Zippo.   They're useful for a lot of different things.  Plus, they're just cool.   I own a few of them and once you get one, you'll want more.  They're Vintage Gear for Guys!
