My Trinket Purse

I showed you way back when, the start of my Trinket Purse, a sort of time line of my life using jewelry, pins, buttons, pictures from my life. My Mother's wedding ring, and her Mother's wedding ring.

Pictures of my Mother's Grandparents, the only one I have, my Parents, my Dad and me and one of Jim. Jewelry or pins from Jim's side of his family. The center starts with my Mother's old watch with the time I was born. I don't carry the purse any more, afraid of losing an item, I have it hanging on the hat rack in the livingroom.

  9. Hi Nancy, I quess its really true that there is another Tom Miner in the world! My name Is Thomas Allen Miner. I was born April, 20th 1961 in Watertown, NY and raised in Lacona, NY 13083. I lived in Mountain Home, Idaho from 19003. I have a construction business called Miner Improvements, Inc. My website is www.WithMajorResults.com. I'm a former Marine, Avid outdoorsmen since I was 5. I was in Big Sky, Mt. and Did the exterior of a Ski Lodge, in Big Sky.I was bought a beer at a local tavern because somebody thought I was the Tom Miner of Mt. I had to tell the truth, that I wasn't the same man! But, Its such a rare name. He is the first other than myself that I know of! I had had a Hyhernia operation at the time we were out in Montana working and I had over eaten the day I let my men take the company truck to do a driveby. I wish I had the chance to meet the other Tom Miner. Oh well, such is life! PS If you want to see what I look like go to my website. My brother Kevin Miner and I are standing on a scaffolding in that site. I'm on the Right!!
