The 5th String Spoiler

I found a couple of nice items at the dump this morning. I especially like the geometric frame, and the look of the title heading type. I might have to read this from the beginning.

This jacket will make something nice some time.

How perfectly fascinating! What an incredible find!

LOL. You never cease to amaze! Dumpster Diving without a dumpster, and no diving required. Did you wear a mask?

Those are both really neat finds.

Thanks for leaving a comment on the Zeppelin post! You are correct about the Empire State Building spire originally being designed as a mast to anchor the airships. Nobody considered the deboarding or boarding procedure involved which would have required a ROPE LADDER.

The other item most people are unaware of is that when the Graf Zeppelin made its voyages to the U.S., it had a very large swastika painted on the tail. Much effort was made to keep that image away from photographers so as not to offend the viewing public.

I too am fascinated with the lighter-than-air ships of the sky.

The 5th string is the string of death! See: "Literary Detective Details Sousa's Other Talent" at

WOW! I learn something new today. And I thought Sousa was just another musician. ;o)
