    I'd let them appraise plaintiff # 2....she's really old and a hell of a cook.

    It would be interesting to see some of their appraisals actually sell for prices they quote.

    Kinda reminds me of the two kids who wanted to trade two $500,000 cats for a $1,000,000 dog.

    Here is the oldest flyer trap that I've come across, outside is made off copper, has two springs in the bottom to launch bird out of it. The two door springs are obviously not original to it. This is my best antique for the road show. Start the bids at 3500.00........ :)

    Looks like someone might have tried to get them a tad early.
