I am not a collector of things. Well, except for refrigerator magnets.

The thing is, I’m not a very good collector, because when I’m in a new place, I don’t go out of my way to find refrigerator magnets. If I find myself in a place that sells them, and I have the time to pick one up, I will, but, being a lousy collector, as often as not, I forget to even look for them. It never much mattered, because placing them on the refrigerator in the House by the Parkway (North) was, by decree of Mrs. Parkway, verboten. But, at the House by the Parkway (South), we have a very nice garage refrigerator (stocked exclusively with beverages) on which I can park my refrigerator magnets.

Here’s a close up view of some of them.

Another close up view.

Isn’t this exciting?

I’ve been to lots of places not represented by magnets, but, as I said, I’m a lousy collector.

Oh, I almost forgot. I’m also a lousy collector of tall shot glasses, but they have remained and still remain stored away in several boxes. If I can find a suitable place to put them, I’ll show them to you. Until then, we’ll all just have to tough it out.


  1. You also appear to have a sign that says “Welcome to the Beach House”. Well, I’m just guessing on what it actually says, like I’m guessing it is a sandblasted sign. I’m also guessing there is a story that goes with it. Not that any of that has any relevance to anything.

  2. Hmmm… Don’t see any alligator magnets. We’ll have to rectify that situation.

  5. You come to NY to see “Jersey Boys” on Broadway how many times? And then again for burgers & beer with Cueball, Chef of da Future, and myself, and yet I do not see a New York magnet on that fridge. WTF is up with that, dooshbag?

  6. I USED to have a nice collection of magnets until Satan’s Little Helper decided that he wants to sit on top of the fridge while I cook. He is not very graceful in his acent to the top and he knocks them all off.
