  7. 2. Birdseye has to be the frozen food.

    Gattling is the machine gun.

    Carrier... Air conditioning

    Nesmith... Correction fluid.

    ~grin~ If I remember correctly, Mrs. Nesmith was the mother of one of "The Monkeys," a teen singing group, with a popular tv show, when our daughter was growing up.

  9. that photo of the dried flowers in the window is so pretty!!

    the only one i can even make an educated guess on is birdseye - frozen food. i would be guessing on all of the rest!!

    and my best guess on the zipper is maybe the early 1900's. i will google it now to see if i made a fool of myself!!

    1. Thank you Linda :) Sometimes you have to grab the cell phone quickly, before that moment of light disappears. I'm glad I had the opportunity for this shot.
