    Having travelled with and worked in the circus for the last 4 years of the 70's, I collected elephants.

    I have since gotten out of that hobby, but before I did, I had amassed over 250 elephants that were stuffed, glass, wood, brass, coal, plastic, large, small, you name it.

    Statues that say something about where I visited, in the 12" high area. I have a 12" bronze Mickey statue from Walt Disney World, a 12" Pewter cat from the Luxor in Vegas, a 14" tall handcarved tiki from Hawaii, and a 12" tall jade Gnesh statue from India. I have to be very discerning with these things, as real estate in SoCal is at a premium, and room for display is limited.

    I collect wood so I can burn it in my wood stove. That way I get heated twice. Once collecting it and once by burning it.
