While I was hauling these old toilets out of the junkpile, I noticed an pair of old horns. Yellow horns. Asked Grandpa what those were all about and he told me that they're a pair of airhorns from my great grandpa Blackmore's old Caterpillar. Awesome! Another score.






Then a few days later when I was helping my Grandpa organize some pictures on his laptop, I happened to find a picture of Blackmore leaning against that DW21. I remember him, but I was pretty young when he died, and everybody in my family tells me that I'm the spitting image of him. Super-cool to find connections like these to the past.
