While I’m away, I’m leaning on ya’ll to keep the content of The Practical Archivist blog fresh & interesting.
I’m unabashedly stealing from two of my favorite entertainers.
From Mike Myers, I’m stealing the Linda Richman trick of stating a topic an imploring viewers to discuss.
* What’s the oldest thing you use regularly?
(OK. I admit it’s not as funny as “The Thigh Master is neither a thigh nor a master. Discuss.” but I do what I can…)
What do you say, family archivists? I’m thinking we can smoke the Mental Floss readership in the history department.
How you can help: Leave a note in the comments field about your oldest treasures. Upload a photo (or photos) to Flickr with the tag “oldestpractical” and I’ll feature it in my first post after I return next week. I’ll also reveal my oldest treasures.
One last note: This seems like a good time to run down the rules for the Practical Archivist comments section: No spam. No dissing other people’s treasures.
Thanks for your assistance, dear readers. I’m off to the Chippewa Valley. Woo hoo!
