Drinking Bird

You're buying the drinks and this wacky, yet debonair, bird with a top hat and plastic base (7" tall OA) can't get his fill of water. Get him started, and he dips his beak into your glass repeatedly. How? Fluid inside his glass body condenses from the evaporative cooling of the water off the bird's beak, making it top heavy and dunking it back into the water. The condensate rejoins the liquid pool in the bird's bulb, and he tips up again. Process continues indefinitely. It works, but it's not any more than moderately well made, and not any more than moderately priced. WARNING! The fluid and dye inside the bird can permanently stain, and the bird's glass body can easily be broken. Children are fascinated by the bobbing bird, and the educational possibilities are great. But they should watch him, not fondle him!! Manufacturer warning states this item is not intended for children 8 and under.

Hemostats, Forceps, Fish Hook Removers

Whatever you call them they are super handy. Used for suturing, these are carbon-steel straight-locking needle holders, 5” long with narrow serrated 7/16” tips. And yes, you’re permitted to use them for other stuff if you’re not a surgeon. (Or even if you are a surgeon, actually.)

Prehistoric Poster

So the poster is really brand new. The animals on it are (1) to (190) million years old, and if that doesn't qualify as pre-history, may we stumble over a glyptodon in the dark. Invicta Plastics Ltd. of Leicester, England, printed this 23" x 16-1/2" poster with a colorful diorama to promote their authentic scale models of prehistoric animals. A time line across the bottom lists dates and data for a dozen of them, from the plesiosaur to the woolly mammoth, and compares their sizes to that of a pair of five-year-old children. Post it on the fridge to spark supper discussions, or in the classroom as a source of extra-credit questions for science quizzes.

Hey, Jute...

Time ago, burlap bags're all over the place, child. Sisal sacks too. We used 'em to make sandbags, protect winterin' plants and keep down weeds, sew up scratchy britches, and collect frogs. Made dog beds out of 'em, fulla wood chips. Mama called 'em tote sacks or croker sacks, and daddy aluss kep' a few in the bed of the pick-up. 'Course daddy went and died and them plastic bags took over. Mama hated that. These here burlap bags used to have coffee inside and they say they're from lotta different countries and your'n might could be anywhere from about (3) to (4) foot long by 28" wide, good fer big dogs or small dogs-lotta frogs either way.

That’s where these military overseas caps started out, on Deutsch köpfe. Slightly shorter than the U.S. garrison cap, and with a jaunty curve, front to back, they’re in dark blue-gray with orange piping and a German army insignia on the front. We’ll pick a pair in (2) different sizes 58-63, which is approx 7-1/4 to 7-7/8 on American heads, but the envelope design gives them some size leeway.

It's hard to make a good exit if your feet keep slipping off the pedals. We have acquired (2) styles of replacement bike pedals, so you can depart in dignity. Cheap dignity. Flat-top pedals give each foot a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" hard plastic platform on a shaft with 1/2" dia x 7/8" threaded end. Both pedals threaded counter-clockwise. These "excel" pedals may have been made for an exercise bike. Concave pedals are 1-3/16" thick and have slightly dished 2-5/16" x 4" faces. These come in lefts and rights (you'll get one of each) with 1/2" x 1/2" clockwise and counterclockwise threaded shafts.
