He shared some of his incredible items a year or so back. Easily one of the greatest and most interesting posts I have seen. The realia connected to the historic events was incredible, and I would certainly love an opportunity to see more.

Funny you mention the mutant food collection.

I collected dried fruit and Vegetables for a few years. Any and all veggies and fruit I would set outside to dry then I would bring it in and put it on a shelve. I had literally dozens of different types. No clue why I had the compulsion to do this, I finally just threw them all away! I think I realized this could become a problem for me at some point, as my three sons may use this as a reason to send me away in my older years.
