Here is an item that has been sitting in my garage for about 25 years. It is dirty from use and has collected a lot of dust. It also has some rust on it.



This item is not found in every home. If you don't have one at home, you have probably seen in in a certain kind of store or a certain section of a store.

I would have guessed the first on as a battery post cleaner, I just used one today cause it was such a nice day to take the old hot rod out. I had to clean the posts off , a bit of corroision. Never would have gotten the 2nd one.

The second one is a container where God plans to put one of Adam's ribs. :-)

Great guesses puppy. I never would have thought of those two items. Nice shots, Cal.

The first is definitely a battery post cleaner. I really like Walter's guess on the second. I'll wait a bit before saying what the second is. I am anxious to see what wild guesses people come up with!

Nope, not a makeup thingy! It is something I use, myself.

Isn't twistedpuppy right that it's a pill dispenser? Sure looks like mine.

OK! Two people have guessed correctly. It is a pill box with removeable trays for each day of the week. Each tray has four compartments labeled "Morn, Noon, Eve, Bed". When you are taking six different prescriptions with different dosing schedules, This little plastic box sure makes things easier.
