Back Home – And still more of the Jeff Nelson gum collection!

After a little more than a week away, the staff has returned home.  It was an amazing road trip, though it is nice to be able to post from my home PC, while having easy access to my scanner and files.

I had hoped to be able to keep posting daily while away, but the learning curve of posting from the filed, from my iPad, combined with sometimes exceedingly long days of non-stop gum sorting and driving, left a number of days without a post.  I even missed my weekly Wacky Wednesdays column.  Sorry about that.  I learned a lot about how to make my mobile-posting life easier, so next time, I shouldn’t encounter as many problems.

Today, I’m going to post another series of photos featuring more of Jeff Nelson’s gum collection display cases, and I hope you enjoy them.  I may come back later tonight with an additional wrap-up post of the weeks’ events (though that may have to wait until tomorrow).

    I had TOTALLY forgotten about the Slimer tube gum. Neon green, a little gritty & it seemed you needed to eat at least 1/4 of a tube to get decent bubblage. Unless you just wanted to eat it as candy. The taste is almost on the tip of my toungue. Green, ghosts & gum. Three things I look for in a candy. 🙂

    I had totally forgotten about that bubble gum in a fake floppy disc. I had one of those. Man, something I hadn’t thought of in probably 20 years…

    And I can’t believe they had Rambo gum!
