I don't "collect" them but I ride and own several bicycles as cycling is my main hobby.

I've cut way back on collecting but I do have a collection of Kachinas, iron wood animal figurines, toad hollow toads one is bigger than a basket ball, animal skulls like deer, buffalo two mountain lion, one bear, antelope some small rodents. My most prized skull that I found was an eagle skull a once in a life time find but sadly one of the dogs ate it because dummy me put it on a shelf where he could reach it. Still makes me mad. I also have a copper cookware collection.

Rubber duckies

I never meant to collect them... but I bought one, and people started thinking I collected them, and giving them to me, so it was kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy! Besides, my younger brothers and sisters like to play with them when they visit

Rocks...I started when Paul was in the Navy and we didn't have the extra money for "thingys" so I would pick up rocks from the West Coast to the East coast. Rocks were free...lol
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

One day I looked down at my key chain and realized I had one key and about 15 key chains. That's when I realized I collect key chains. I would like to make a display rack or something for some of them. I have some really cute ones and unusual ones. One is a tiny pair of pliers, which really work. One is from the post office; it looks like a stamp and has a cartoonish black and white tuxedo cat. I got that because it looked like my cats Ariel and Amy. One has a house that turns around in the middle of a ring. It is from the house sweepstakes. I have a couple from my last trip to California. A lot of them have been given to me.

I have a nice little collection of Precious Moments figurines, who have in turn started their own little collection of DUST!
