An old credit card receipt with the card numbers on it. (I shredded)

A condom still in the foil. (I trashed )

Misc. coins totaling about 79 cents (I spent)

pens and pencils (I use)

A packet of receipts that tell me that the PO had to replace panels on at least 2 occasions.

Exclamation Nooooooooooooo

OMG! I was going thru some things in our latest addition.



Well, anyway, I found this thing, I am quite surprised, I certainly hope it is not what it appears to be!





Could it be a device to cure ALUMINITUS!?!?!?!?





Oh the horror…………

It's a SOLID ALuminum NAIL!

Leftovers

Assorted string, wire, screws, vinyl piping, really old receipt from ACE hardware, mouse trap (not a good sign), old time card from Chicago with original owners notes , 1950s-70s pennies, two razor blades, and a vintage, oozing, half-used tube of Polident.

Andre, is it about 3/8" or a bit larger in diameter, and about 8-10" long?
If so, you may find 3 more, they are used to stake the awning arms to the ground. They are aluminum so the moisture in the dirt won't cause rust. Even if it's not, it's still better than finding a wooden stake...I would really be worried.

In our "new" trailer, I have found a slew of empty bottles of booze. It seems the PO never saw a whiskey bottle he didn't like.

Some loose change, a gameboy cartridge, and a watch that I wore for about 5 years. We also found the rotten floor that the PO failed to mention and the lack of a brake a way switch.

This is pretty cool...

Not quite sure what it is but I found this behind our couch when I was re-doing the floor. It's a nice smooth piece of stone on a strand of leather. The previous owners (she died of cancer) name was Sharon so we affectionately call it "Sharon's Stone" and keep it hanging for her in the stream......

Talking Not much exiting

I can't even come close on some of these. The bullet holes and the stone circle I though both unique.

All I found was a deteriorated soap bar (at least circa P-PO)
Two sealed copies of Gun Dog Magazine (PO) know for a fact --his name on the tag....and he is my Vet.

A few coins under the univolt and a pocket comb.

The original owners manual! Came from Flint Michigan, Copywrite 1971, 72 manual, the title is 72...only Tradewind I have seen with all AC on a 20 amp breaker (including the airconditioner). It was sort of tucked into a crevice

Pretty boring compared with many othe posts.

That could be a weather rock. Or not.
