Wow, I just got several new followers in the last couple days — howdy,howdy,howdy!

It had been a long time since I posted anything, then I found my Spock ears and had to do pix of my daughter’s little girl wearing them — so you don’t have to look at me. You’re welcome!

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and let you know that I do intend to post more, once I finish moving all my stuff here and find my stash of Trek. I’ll do scans & photos of pictures, posters, magazine and get ‘em online. So stick around, and tell anyone who is into vintage Trek stuff.

Oh, most of my Star Trek books are here — I could do photos of book covers to post, if there’s any interest in seeing older books you might not know about.

So, tell me —- Would anyone want to see what Trek books I have?

Granddaughter Elizabeth, age 2, modeling the Vulcan ears I thought I’d gotten rid of ages ago. At first she didn’t want them on her ears, then she was begging to see the pictures. When I removed them to put them on myself, she kept saying “Ear! Ear!” until I put them back on her.

Star Trek fanart - Spock in a Santa hat. Pencil on typing paper. 
I drew this in December 1981, to put on my dorm room door. I tried to make the scan darker, but this is the best I could manage. Drawn while looking at a drawing of Spock in a fan magazine.

The presence of the McDonald’s logo made these transfers less than desirable to actually use, but interesting as a collectible.

Circa 1983. Yet another drawing of me by my roomie, Ramona. Why were we friends? I forget.

She’s a chemist, not an artist, dammit.(Obviously.)

Circa 1981. Portrait of Me, drawn by my college roommate, Ramona, who liked to make fun of me (and the fact that I cut my own hair to dress up like Spock.)

Great article about Gene Roddenberry.

That’s the end of the actual pages in my scrapbook, but not the end of this blog

Next I’ll do scans of items that were just stuck between the pages, things that were tossed in a box, and all my Star Trek (and other sci-fi) memorabilia that can’t go into a scrapbook. I’ve got posters, calendars, magazines (some with Star Trek and Star Wars parodies) and about a hundred books - can’t remember what else. While I don’t have nearly as much as some people do, I might have some things you haven’t seen before. I’m excited to see what I have that I have forgotten about, since most of this stuff has just been packed away for well over a decade, maybe two decades. 

As I can manage, I’ll take pictures of everything and post them. Might also write up some of my Trek-related memories. Before I forget them entirely!

Thank you to the few of you who are following me. It’s nice to know there is some interest in this at least.
