I found a lot of these long-forgotten, personal 'treasures' fairly recently. They were stashed in an old suitcase and tucked away under a basement stairwell in my parent's home. The flimsy piece of paper that says 'Drunk' on it goes as far back as 35 years! Memory lane is cobble-stoned with a vast array of disparate oddities: here's a small sampling of mine.
