Twitter - NFT 

I was really hoping that this was for some sort of fundraiser or charity; but it doesn't appear to have an altruistic value. Therefore, is further proof that there are some dumb effin' people in the world with more money than sense.

Fediverse friends and followers from around the world, I have a huge favor to ask!

If you are out for a walk or drive and you spot a payphone, would you mind sending me a photo of it? (DMs are always open) I will feature it on my #100DaysOfPayphone thread over on the birdsite and of course give you credit.

When I started this a couple of weeks ago I didn't realize all of my old photos from before 2018 are gone, which means the hundreds of old phone photos I had taken at one point are also gone. But maybe this opens an opportunity to see payphones from around the globe.

This could be a payphone that you spot in the wild that still exists (thank God there are still some of those out there) or it could be a photo you took in the past of a phone that may or may not be there anymore. But please, let me see your payphones!

If you have photos of other cool phone equipment or phones that aren't payphones, they won't work for the #100DaysOfPayphones thread, but I encourage you to send them my way as well. Phone related stories? I'd love to hear them! Please help me spread this around the world!

All payphones are acceptable, but I especially encourage you to send in any photos you have of payphones from countries other than the US or phones that are unique in some way. Also, PLEASE boost this toot and help me get this call for help out there! Thank you! 📞

This is my Great Grandfathers Negro League card. On the back it gives the story on how he could’ve been the first black player to integrate baseball. It also tells you why he was not

Noted Person Death 

I am just learning that Victor Ambrus passed away in mid-February. An amazing artist, but I am only familiar with the illustrations he did as part of Time Team.

RIP.

whew. spent some time with a pick ax carving channels in the high snow/ice banks along the driveway so the drive doesn't wash away as we move into mud season.

Now that's impressive: An Easter egg hidden in video from another planet.
