Photo Hunters- Original


This weeks theme is original.

Since I'm trying to be original this week it was a little harder to come up with something. What I finally decided on was my husband's beer can collection. His collection is on proud display in the back shelf of our very dark closet.

Here are two JR Ewing (from the TV show Dallas) beer cans. They are filled with the original beer and still have the original pull tabs on them.
Here are some more original beer cans from his collection but most of these no longer have the original beer or pull tabs on them.

Not a bad collection. So who drank all the beer?

4andcounting said...

I think my husband would love that. He has a can of Billy Beer, never opened, that he found in an abandoned barn or something. I think it is in our closet too.

Melli said...

Ahhh! Does he have a Genesee Cream Ale can? Hubby and I were given two of them for wedding gifts - 21 years ago! We've still got 'em... though full beer cans do weird things over the course of 20 years...

jenny said...

Very interesting! I remember my Dad having some JR beers he kept for a long time. And some Billy Beer---Billy Carter, the president's brother? The JR beers were extra cool, because we had just moved to TX as a family in teh early 80s. We were busy making ourselves Texan.

Thanks for visiting me!
