inventions-of-the-past-25

These photos seriously crack me up! It is really funny the things man becomes obsessed with.  We have tried so many inventions to walk, float, run, glide and ride on water. These are some really cool inventions, from total redneck underwater air breathing to water skiing Queenie the elephant 🙂 I got a kick out of these and wanted to share, let me know your favorites!

given a new life

I have always loved to reuse old stuff.  Really it is a way for me to not be considered a hoarder, but that is a post for another day!  I am always amazed at people in their 70’s and 80’s, they have been reusing items their entire life!  They really do not even know how hip and cool they are by today’s standards.  They do it because they have always done it!  What would you do with some of these??
