Title: Boxes of tops
Post by: ta0 on May 15, 2018, 07:53:09 PM
I'm sure this will be the NSTR topic with more tops in it, ever. I will be moving in a few weeks to a different house a few miles away. So I have started to pack, and the first thing were my tops. It's amazing how much stuff one can accumulate over the years. If you are a collector, it's much worse. All these boxes only have tops! And there are more! :o

I may just be in the new house for a year, but I plan to unpack and display the tops anyway.  ::)

That's a lot of tops! Did you rediscover any long-forgotten trasures?

That is a lot of tops!!!  So, you are going to be in another place for a year while your new Lucky house with several pools is being built by the lake so you can swim across it every morning.  And you will have a special addition built on the house just for top spinning and the displaying of your collection?

Unfortunately, no.  :(
But I have decided I need more display cabinets.  ::)

Yes, I have. But I had to resist the urge to play with them (well, I did a bit) or document them. I'll have more time during the unpacking.

Great song.  And I love the dancing!

The Box Tops have been described as a major blue-eyed soul group of that era.  Two original members have been touring so others can hear their great music.  Seems like they have been doing a lot of cruises lately.
