    Display case is in a corner of our family room. Pretty much in a constant state of flux. Matter of fact there are a bunch of new birds in there since this picture was taken.

    About 15 years ago I was coming back from hunting in the Rose Bay area and encountered a guy with a TDB on the side of 264 with a bad wheel bearing. I keep spares, so I stopped to give them to him. It became apparent he was not going to be able to get it going on his own so I stopped and fixed it for him. Got it good enough to get him home. He offered to pay, but I declined and when I got ready to leave, he went to his truck and got a wooden bufflehead decoy and gave it to me. Said he bought a box of them and I could have one. I took it and put it up at my house on the coffee table. A guest recognized what it was some years later.

    Turns out it is a George Mason and is quite collectable.

    I have collected antique decoys for years. Here are a few in my office.
