Oh God. Good old Rickshaw Boy. When we were kids he would insist on doing that politically-incorrect L/R substitution thing:

"Hi! Me Lickshaw Boy! Hey Lady, you needa Lickshaw?"

"You think you're being funny," I said. "But it just sounds nasty."

"Yeah, well Rick me, Sabu! Maybe some little boy wanna sit in your "Lapa Nui".

(He even knew I was into tiki back then). He used to say his favorite musician was Lickie Lee Jones. He was such a stupid rittle Plick.

For some reason lately I have contracted the curse of the cornucopia!



Every time we go antiquing they are showing up in droves. All sizes, colors and materials.



Geez, I know they are sometimes called the Horn of Plenty. Now I am beginning to think that it's because I've seen plenty of the damn things!

Now that Ray Charles has passed away, maybe the volumes of Diet Pepsi "You Got The Right One Baby!" tumblers I find at every thrift store will finally be worth something.

Tonight, my opinion of ceramic owls from Otagiri on eBay completely changed...

Squirrel on a nut. I have lost track of how many of these I have seen at thrift stores. But yet I have never seen one new.

Maybe they just skipped the middleman and released them directly to thrift stores, knowing they would all end up there anyway in the course of time.

...and for those of us who have a tendency to scavenge through dumpsters and roadside residential trash piles, you can count on running across one of these black torcheire lamps at the same rate or more as you'd run across an owl or a Mitch Miller album or a Herb Albert album at a thrift shop. These things must go from Big Lots to the trash pile in a matter of a few days, seriously--next time you're riding down the street, count how many you see in people's trash--no joke!

I,m still using the same lamp (pictured above) that I pulled out of the trash many many years ago.
