Actually, thinking about this, maybe I only have 900.  I
used to get the nifty surplus catalog in the mail.   Some
place in Chicago.  This was not a military style clothing
shop but rather a jobber who got all sorts of industrial
surplus, rejects, trim and bustouts.  I got 1000 rubber
balls for ONLY TWO CENTS EACH.  I kept thinking that with a
thousand of these things, sooner or later I would figure out
a use.   So far littering the playroom has been the
principle use.

I don't buy catalog surplus any more.  Now I buy metal
clarinets on eBay.  (I had never thought about this before,
but maybe there is a pattern.)

So Jim, what do you do with all those metal clarinets?  I am turning one
into a lawn sprinkler.  A little bit of 5/8" copper tubing and some hose
components and voila a sprinkler.  It's good to have a husband who owns a
machine shop to bore out the clarinet.
