A couple days ago I was visiting my sister out of town. We went to the garage to see something and she pointed out a glass display case just begging to be used. It was our dad and step-mother's case, and had bounced around the family when dad died in 2005, until simply being stored at my sister's when no one wanted it any more.
Now those of you that know me know I claim to be a solver, not a collector. Part of the rationale I use when denying that I am a collector is that I do not have my puzzles on display. They are all in boxes in the closet.
When I saw this beautiful old display case, you know I was visualizing it full of puzzles. So when I got back to my mother-in-law's that night I told my wife about it—we would need to stop at my sister's on our way home the next day to pick it up. And that we did. It is now full and ready to share.

Well, as you can see, it didn't turn out exactly as I visualized, but I can honestly say that I am happy the way it turned out. And needless to say, my wife is very pleased with it.
