I like gifts. Yes. But what people bring me, they're not gifts. Everybody that doesn't want a thing, they bring it to me. They know I'll take it. Here's the picture of a person, I don't know who it is. And those are just beads. They used to be on old lamps years ago. They just bring them to me. They mean a whole lot to me. And look, my cousin he made all kinds of knots. And a boy brought me that when they were first making the national park • a sea urchin, I think. You look at them and then I'll put them back. Now look, these little boxes you may not think much about them, but they were spice boxes the old ladies used to have. See, it's sewed with wood. I've collected things since I was a child. If I had everything I ever collected you'd be afraid of it. And I never lose anything, anyone that ever gave me anything. I know where everything is.
