But enough about me.
Let's talk humidors.
I think I mentioned that I bought a humidor from the couple that a friend and I held the barn sale for a couple of summers ago. They were downsizing and this humidor didn't make the cut.
I did a fairly quick shop of the house to get it filled up.
I'm not sure if this is the way it will stay.
Actually, I know it won't.
But I'm enjoying it for now.
I did a slow look through the internet but came up with almost nothing about large cabinet humidors.
I did find out that they are supposed to be made from Spanish cedar or mahogany. I'm fairly certain that this is not mahogany, but I can't swear that it is Spanish cedar either.
I do know that I love the hardware on it.
And I love the way the bottom cabinet doors open down.
And that the whole thing is lined with galvanized metal.
Except this little center area.
From what I gathered from the few images I could find, this little area was either used to hold a jar of loose tobacco, or used to store decanters of liquors.
I also am imagining that since cabinet humidors are designed to hold between 1000 and 5000 cigars, that this cabinet either was for retail or was owned by a very rich person.
I hope they wouldn't mind that I have their cabinet filled with dead people's stuff - DPS, as my friend Kirby calls it.
Wonder how long it's been since cars had glass batteries.
I would be frightened to have a glass battery in my car - I think.
And not everything is from dead people.
This humidor finally gave me a place to put my dad's surveying equipment and engineering tools.
That certificate is a place holder for when I find the engineering license I have somewhere to go in this vignette.
Now, it's time for me and my mask to spend some more quality time together.
If I disappear for a month don't worry.
Oh, and in my vast humidor research, the only other thing I found that humidors were used for was for English tea biscuits.
Can anyone tell me anything else that is stored in humidors?
