    Yeah, and one of the kids was an actual electrician. One who couldn't be bothered to wire his own house in anything beyond utter chaos.

    Crawl space of our 1950s house yielded a cool old Coke bottle, the kind they used to refill through the 1970s. There's also some trashed cast iron plumbing pipes and fittings from the last round of plumbing.. ready to re pipe again when the nest empties and we can redo all the plumbing and electrical here again.

    But the Coke bottle was cool to find down there.. Some mason jars and other misc gardening stuff the old lady before us left down there..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    1950s house too. The crawlspace only had a couple rusty cans and random bits of old construction materials. But the attic had some old paintings (none of them really cool or exciting) and a pair of wood skis and poles. I haven't put those on display on a wall yet, but eventually that's where they'll go.

    There were a couple old bottles in there too. Real old, like early 20th century.

    And just for weirdness sake, I did find this in the dirt in the yard a while back. It's clearly for a child, and clearly not a costume piece.

    The bits in the box are both for using in braces. The top is just an auger bit, the bottom is an adjustable forstner (flat bottomed holes). Neat adjustment mechanism. Mine you have to slide by hand rather than turn a cog like this one.

    FWIW I sold all that brace and bit (plus the hand drill) stuff on CL for $80! Was kinda stoked. Buyer drove a Tesla.

    I still have a brace--a lot faster than a ratchet to drive lag bolts (before electric impact wrench were available). I built an outside staircase with treads sitting on steel angles with it. First and last time I used it, at least 25 years ago.
