"Before I Sell It..." (#1 in a Probable Series!)



As some of you know, I'm trying to slowly-but-surely unload most of the contents of my apartment. I have multiple collections of stuff I like, more CDs than I'll ever have a chance to listen to, more VHS tapes and DVDs than I'll ever have a chance to watch, more books, magazines, and comics than I'll ever get a chance to read... You get the picture. Add to that several boxes of paperwork, several boxes of what I used to call "junk" but now call "3-D items" (basically, anything that's not paper, like bottles, toys, ashtrays, knick-knacks, etc.), and other things that I've accumulated in 50+ years on this mudball, and you have a potential nightmare for whomever gets stuck disposing of my "worldly effects" if I die tomorrow.

Anyway, as I go through all my crap, I find things I almost forgot I had. Like this little gem:


Yep, it's a clipping from a Canadian newspaper, advertising the Lusitania. Not sure of the exact date, but it's a nice piece of history, innit?

Wonder how much I can get for it...

Thanks for your time.

  4. Very, very cool! And having been on a few cruises myself, I'd love to step back in time and take one on that! Just so it didn't sink! ha. Very glamorous like the Titanic, I'm sure.
