Aero Games By Patrick Flynn After coaching one of my teenagers on the causes of the First World War, I realize I have to start at the very beginning. Aero did not start out as a chocolate bar. Like most things English, the invented word was given a Latin root, and all things to do with the new ships of the air became aeronautical.
Waterworks James Trautman
Saturday was the best day when I was a kid in Elizabeth, New jersey. No school, and the weekly bus trip up town. The routine was to have a turkey lunch at the Woolworth 5 & 10. I can still see myself sitting at the counter rushing through the meal, so that I could run to the toy area. I can still picture the wooden counter with bins full of soldiers, cars, boats, kites, yo-yo's and water guns. In the mid-'50s this was the place to be. Each week a new supply of plastic water guns arrived.

Stamp Boxes Tony Shaman
Postage stamp boxes, long the purview of stamp collectors, postal historians, and museums, are being discovered by an ever-increasing number of antique lovers. Collectors with a penchant for unusual collectible items are finding that the array of stamp boxes manufactured almost since the introduction of postage stamps in 1840, and continued down to our time, can add an element of excitement and spice to their collecting lives.
The Game of Chess
By Floyd Sarisohn
As the game of chess evolved, so too did the shape and design of the chess pieces and boards. With the games growing popularity in the Western World, it was inevitable that artists and others with imagination would try to create more decorative and artistic chess sets.
Collecting Antique Fishing Tackle Jim Greenway Over the past few decades, the collecting of fishing tackle has grown in popularity. Years ago, I could obtain a tackle box full of lures and bobbers at an auction with a bid of $20.00 to $30.00. A similar box today will sometimes cost me considerably more, especially if there is a certain bait sitting in one of the trays and definitely more if there are a couple of other collectors in the room. Back in the early 80s I would look at the people I was bidding against and we would have a lot in common: we would be about the same age and have similar interests such as cottages, boating, and fishing. This is not always true today as we have lots of young people collecting tackle; it is not just a hobby for the 50 and over club.
