I decided to bid at an auction on an old German beerstein and and old gas lamp. I ened up winning both bids! I was one happy camper! So I headed off to the beer store, picked up 4 beer, and rushed home to clean up the stein. It was made in the early 60s', and was in great shape, other than the inside was full of tiny spider web type cracks in the finish that is normal in any old porcelin type mugs. After cleaning it up, the phone rang, and a friend down the road invited me over for a night of poker! Things couldn't be better! Off I went with my 4 beer, and stein in hand! I ended the night up in poker and half corked from the beer! Life is good! I noticed today the old gas lamp has never been used, and all in original condition. I think I will try finding some gas, and take it and the old beerstiein with me camping this summer! I just feel like a kid at Christmas right now!
