I have been fascinated with the past all my life. Although time travel is not possible (at least, as far as I know), we can still experience it through what I call "relics of the fourth dimension." Namely, as the old saying goes, "time marches on." We can't travel in the fourth dimension, except going forward in the present, but we can follow the trail of the fourth dimension. Along the way, people lose or discard items from their being. These relics are unintentional time capsules that give us as glimpse into their lives. Here on The Time Searchers blog, I will show some relics of the past that I have run across in our present. Sometimes when I am out on a relic hunt with the Colonial Relic Hunter, we know that we are not alone. There is more than just relics at these historical sites. Indeed, it could be said that there is a portal to the past, perhaps to another dimension, where that which once was, still is. A place where the real consorts with the shadows; the present fuses with the past, on Time Searchers: Ghost Relics.

A LATE FATHER'S DAY TRIBUTE TO A RELIC HUNTING PIONEER: THE ORIGINAL TIME SEARCHER BEFORE THERE WAS A TIME SEARCHER
HERE'S A PHOTO OF MY DAD FROM APRIL, 1956. HE'S BEEN GONE FOR OVER TWO YEARS NOW. THERE ISN'T A DAY GOES BY THAT I DON'T THINK ABOUT HIM. HE WAS A RELIC HUNTER EVEN WHEN HE WAS A SMALL KID GROWING UP IN THE 1930'S. A GREAT CAR COLLECTOR WHO WAS A EARLY MEMBER OF THE AUBURN, CORD, DUESENBERG CLUB. HE COLLECTED ANTIQUES AND ESPECIALLY AUTO RELATED ITEMS. GROWING UP, I TRAVELED ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES WITH HIM LOOKING AT CARS AND OTHER ANTIQUITIES. HE TAUGHT ME THE VALUE OF HARD WORK, RESPECT FOR OUR HISTORY AND THE FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM. IT WAS MY GREAT PLEASURE AND HONOR TO WORK WITH HIM FOR MANY YEARS. AS THE COLONIAL RELIC HUNTER KNOWS, HIS STORIES OF THE PAST ENTERTAINED AND INTRIGUED US. AFTER OUR RELIC HUNTS, I WOULD ALWAYS GO BACK TO OUR OFFICES AND SHOW HIM OUR FINDS. HIS INSIGHT AND COMMENTS ARE SOMETHING I MISS AFTER A TIME SEARCHERS RELIC HUNT. HE WAS A TOUGH TASKMASTER, WHO BOUGHT THE BEST OUT OF PEOPLE. THE PRICELESS MEMORIES OF HIS COLLECTING ADVENTURES, THE PEOPLE AND PLACES WE WENT WILL ALWAYS BRING A SMILE TO MY FACE. HE GAVE ME A GREAT APPRECIATION OF HISTORY, ART, STYLE, AND DESIGN. HE WORKED LONG HOURS AND I WISH THAT I HAD BEEN ABLE TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH HIM. BUT, HE WAS WHAT A DAD SHOULD BE: STRICT BUT FAIR AND SOMEONE WHO WAS LOYAL TO HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND WAS FAIR TO EVERYONE. I WILL ALWAYS MISS HIM. THANKS DAD.-THE TIME SEARCHER

I WAS GOING TO DO A TRIBUTE TO THE 1970 CLASSIC FILM "KELLY'S HEROES" AT SOME POINT. BUT, THE COLONIAL RELIC HUNTER CALLED ME AND TOLD ME THAT OUR OLD FRIEND, DON RICKLES HAD PASSED AWAY. WE LOVED HIS COMEDY AND THE KELLY'S HEROES FILM IS ONE OF OUR OLD FAVORITES. I HAVE EVEN JOKED ON OUR SHOW THAT I AM THE "CRAP GAME" OF OUR OUTFIT, THE TIME SEARCHERS. DON RICKLES WAS IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF. HE COULD INSULT PEOPLE AND THEY WOULD LAUGH WITH HIM INSTEAD OF BEING INSULTED. IN KELLY'S HEROES HE PLAYED THE SUPPLY SARGENT CALLED "CRAP GAME", HIS CHARACTER PROVIDED THE INTELLIGENCE AND EQUIPMENT FOR KELLY (CLINT EAST WOOD) AND THEIR INFANTRY SQUAD SARGENT (TELLY SAVALAS) WITH THE SUPPLIES FOR THEM TO GO AFTER THE NAZI GOLD. CRAP GAME EVEN ARRANGED ARMOR SUPPORT FROM ODDBALL (DONALD SUTHERLAND). A GREAT COMEDY WAR FILM THAT FIRED MY IMAGINATION AS A KID. I PUT TWO OTHER CLIPS DOWN BELOW TO SHOW HOW DON PLAYED HIS CHARACTER, (YES, I AGREE WITH THE COLONIAL RELIC HUNTER THAT MY BACK OFFICE LOOKS LIKE CRAP GAME'S OFFICE IN THE SUPPLY DEPOT.) WE WILL MISS YOU DON RICKLES-THE TIME SEARCHER
HERE'S DON RICKLES CLASSIC ART OF DEAL CLIP: MAYBE HE'S A REPUBLICAN.
