1. Large back "Morticia Addams" wicker chair
2. Two Playboy magazines

Gee, if that's all you've found that you want to keep, I suggest the following:

1. You are very picky.
2. You're diving at the wrong places.
3. You don't dive much.


My latest diving adventure:

I dived at the library on a day when I don't usually dive -- it's open until 9 pm Monday - Thursday, and I try not to go then. However, it had been raining so hard on previous weekend that I hadn't been able to dive, so I went on Monday anyway. The dumpster was *very* full, and so was the parking lot, so I got only what was on top -- a bag of six books. When I got it home, it turned out that all six are salable at prices from $10 to $35! Woo hoo!
