Pins and Pie

Snow has been falling all day. I kept busy. While my mincemeat pie was baking I pulled out the Mister's Nascar membership pins and documented what he has saved. He also has saved his army dog tags and Boy Scout pins in the same box among other items from his activities through the years. He was an avid racer back "in the day" and now is a dedicated follower from his chair. I do plan to scan the news articles and photos in the near future. They are in an album for safe keeping. This project was also was a learning experience for me to try to get good enough pictures so the years on the pins would show.  Then I did a rundown of what is here.
