You Know You're A Marble Collector When ....

... someone plays "pelt" on the Scrabble board and you think that shouldn't count because it's an abbreviation, and shouldn't it be capitalized? ....

....when you dream every fortnight that you discover an antique store with the nicest marbles you have ever seen and they cost almost nothing. This antique store is just behind a house you pass by every day but so far it has never crossed your mind to look behind this house. But it is really hard to wake up..... :(

Two variations on that dream:

1) The garage sale where I notice a couple of old mibs on the top of a box under a table, then discover the box (about the size of an Ice chest, and getting bigger all the time) is full of old marbles and they only want $10 for the whole thing....

2) Notice a marble or two in the dirt and when I start to dig, there are hundreds....

At least I wake up with a good feeling.!

Wake up at a girlfriends house and hear an auction getting ready to start at the home next door. End up getting two jars of mint 3/4" handmade, maybe 40 in each jar for 40 bucks a jar. Oh wait, that wasn't a dream!!!!

when you go digging in dirt full of glass shards and rusty metal pieces of scrap mixed among bricks and mud and you pull out the gems

sometimes just a few but sometimes hundreds and maybe even thousands find their way home to u

u bleed some, lose some skin, get really sore from digging but in the end he has the most wins

steve lol

u have to b a real digger to understand

When you place large spheres in your yard, so it looks like some Giant left his marbles behind, Dave B.

Where are the flames Dave?

When you drive all the way from Austin to Waller just to see an old marble tree!

Someone else got really excited and called it a Skittles tree! LOL!

Thanks again Edna!

EdNargel's first picture kind of eluded me too.

On my setup the photo was a little dark.

I tried to save it as a photo file in the hope that

I could lighten it up and get a better look, but

the way it was posted wouldn't let me do that.

It still looks interesting. ( :
