    I work from all over the house/backyard, but today I'm in the space I call my "office" and Terri calls the "landfill." The explosive nature of the "decorations" notwithstanding, I'm looking around taking stock of what I have in here of some note minor or major, and I'm not talking about printers and files. So here's some of what is on walls or shelves or in many cases leaning against the walls:

    About a dozen photos from golf events with the usual group and one-on-one shot with whatever pro or celeb was part of the action (Dan Haren, Seabass, Kevin Streelman, Natalie Gulbis, William Devane, Don Felder, others).

    A framed award and the editorial from when I was chosen the best editorial writer in the state way way back in the day (for our newspapers' circulation class).

    Pokey and Gumby action (action?) figures on the credenza and a Beanie Baby bison draped across the top of the TV.

    A godawful riot of golf clubs propped up here, there and everywhere.

    "Spam musubi" pillow I got from the PR gals at Turtle Bay.

    A Hopi Katsina (bear, to be exact) that is the coolest trophy I've ever seen handed out at a tour pro-am event, and various other win/place/show awards including a crystal vase from this year's "Bob Hope," the inscription upon which is crooked. lol

    A bunch of flagstick flags from fave courses.

    Two wedding photos.

    The Valentine's Day banner Terri made for me this year.

    The only interesting thing in mine is the cabinet that I keep all of my snacks in.

    Forgot that I do have one Vegas related item. I have a Lucky Cat fortune card that I found amusing.

    I have a bunch of Beaker (the muppet) stuff. People will find random stuff (on the internet or at Disney) and get it for me. I've had two co-workers actually paint me a couple portraits of Beaker. My boss collects art so I have a few random pieces hanging up as well.

    As for Vegas-related stuff, Delano used to place quotes printed on card stock on each bed (don't think they do that anymore). I have one of those hanging up.

    Be careful, Frank, you're going to send a few scurrying for a dictionary.

    I've got a 4'x6' map of the world that's magnetic that tracks our travels, the usual office items (printer, desk, lateral file, etc.), TV, and a bunch of golf memorabilia. I have a ton of stuff, but just added an autographed 8x10 picture of Ben Hogan and Sam Snead's PGA member card from 2002 that is also signed.

    I have several photos of me with past governors, senators and Nevada business leaders. I also have a really cool oak coffee-table that was hand-carved by an inmate on death-row. This fella really did an incredible job carving an eagle into the top and making the legs look like eagle's talons. I also have a clock that was given to my Grandpa when he retired from BF Goodrich. He was one of only a handful of people to have worked there for 50+ years... he started at 14! I have the picture of him accepting it from the company executives back in 1975. I was always so proud of him... great guy! I have a signed 49er helmet by both Steve Young and Jerry Rice and a Raider helmets signed by Kenny Stabler. I have a lot of other little stuff that means something to me, but seem like "stuff" to others. It makes a comfortable space for my work, especially now that I mostly work from home.
