What is the oddest thing you travel with?

WELL CRAP-ON A- CRACKER!

SOMEONE CALL THE STATE OF ALABAMA NUT HUT AND RESERVE ME A ROOM!  

'CUZ I DON'T SEE ANYTHING "ODD" ABOUT THE ITEMS LISTED IN THIS THREAD AT ALL.  I'M EVEN LOOKING FOR A SAINT CHRISTOPHER MEDAL TO TAKE TRAVELING WITH THE Q AND I.  SO FAR ALL I'VE FOUND ARE TINY AND NOT VERY WELL MADE.

I INTEND TO KEEP THE FOLLOWING STUFF
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I HAVE A ANCHOR HOCKING CLEAR BLUE HOBNAIL CRUET WITH A CRYSTAL STOPPER THAT WAS MY GRANDMOTHERS.  SOUNDS FANCY?  WE KEPT CLEAR HOMEMADE PEPPER SAUCE IN IT ON THE EATIN' TABLE FOR OUR TURNIP AND MUSTARD GREENS.  

I ALSO HAVE A STAINED RAG DOLL SHE MADE FROM A PATTERN FROM THE 1930s.  I HOPE TO CUT A PATTERN FROM IT AND MAKE THEM TO SELL AND BARTER WITH WHILE I TRAVEL.  THERE IS ALSO A VERY OLD CERAMIC OR PORCELIN ROOSTER AND HEN THAT MY NOW 96yr OLD AUNT GAVE ME ABOUT 20ys AGO.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NOW I CAN'T PROVE THIS HOWEVER I THINK ONE OF THE REASONS MY HALF SISTER IS NO LONGER SPEAKING TO ME IS BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I WILL NOT BE TRAVELING WITH.

WHEN SHE OFFERED ME SOME OF MY BIRTH MOTHERS ASHES I DECLINED.  I EXPLAINED THAT I DID NOT KNOW WHERE OR HOW I WOULD BE LIVING IN THE COMING YEARS AND I'D RATHER THE ASHES REMAIN WITH MY SISTER BECAUSE THEN I WOULD KNOW WHERE THEY WERE.

  A FEW YEARS BACK I PURCHASED A VERY NICE GINGER JAR AND OFFERED IT TO MY MOM.  SHE WANTED IT AND TOLD ME TO PUT IN ON HER DRESSER.  WHEN I ASKED ABOUT PUTTING IT IN HER LIVING ROOM SHE REPLIED " NO THAT'S FOR MY ASHES WHEN I DIE.  SO I PUT IT ON THE DRESSER "FOR NOW".  

I DON'T THINK MY SISTER KNEW THE STORY BEHIND IT UNTIL I TOLD HER.

MY MOM AND I HAD A REALLY ROCKY RELATIONSHIP UP UNTIL ABOUT 12 OR 13 YEARS AGO.  IT HAD GOTTEN BETTER OVER THE RECENT YEARS. IT TAKES TOO MUCH ENERGY FOR ME TO CARRY AROUND OLD HURTS SO I'VE WORKED ON LETTING THEM GO.  CARRYING AROUND ANYONES ASHES WOULD JUST BE TOO DEPRESSING FOR ME.  I'D PROBABLY TEAR UP OR CRY JUST LIKE I AM NOW.

NOW I'M WAKING UP THE Q AND WE'RE GOING TO A STORAGE UNIT, OR NOT

JEWELLANN

PS     BESIDES A NEW,  NEVER OPENED,  IN THE BOX LIGHT WEIGHT SINGER SEWING MACHINE I ALSO HAVE A VINTAGE  4Olb ENGLISH VERSION OF A HEAVY DUTY SINGER SEWING MACHINE IN A WOODEN CRATE THAT IS SCREWED SHUT.
ON HIS MAIDEN VOYAGE IN HIS NEW VAN THAT OL' SWEETY DOUG/ABNORM BROUGHT IT TO ME.  OF COURSE THERE IS ACRES AND ACRES OF SEWING FABRIC TOO THAT QUEENIE INSISTS WE TAKE WITH  Rolleyes
I WAS NOT BUILT TO BREAK  
                  
         MY  Heart  IS GOOD....BUT OH THIS MOUTH

The old heavy sewing machines are easiest to use and to repair. Parts are more available than the new POS machines. Keep the old one. Some of them will hand crank so you don’t need to worry about power.

Pictures or it didn’t happen?
These were my only possessions at the age of six months - and I now have them with me.

Two tiny baby dresses and the larger dress I wore to my adoption hearing at six months of age. I have no idea what to do with these.....

Anyone else care to share pictures?

Here is his close up - isn’t he a horse?

And here he is in my trailer, trying to figure out how to turn around.

He is most certainly an odd thing to travel with!
