Each spring, my wife and I divide our yard into plots marked "His" and "Hers." Basically, I receive custody of the vegetable patch and compost heap, and she gets the rest.Both of us work hard to whip the place into shape. Indeed, Meg is as proud and possessive of her turf as I am of mine.In fact, the only notable difference is that my half of the yard smells like the Augean Stables, and hers does not.While I am ankle-deep in animal fertilizers, and breathing heavily, Meg is immersed in her lilacs and lilies of the valley.

It was like something out of a Hollywood movie - a musty attic in a stately old home, a forlorn-looking dollhouse perched against one wall and underneath it, a mysterious dust-covered box wrapped in twine. But what Karl Kissner and his cousin, Karla Hench, stumbled upon on that gray February day was a real-life bonanza of about 700 baseball cards from the early 1900s with a total estimated value of about $3 million, according to some experts. "Some people discover art in their attic, others discover natural gas on their property," said Chris Ivy of Heritage Auctions in Dallas, which bills itself as the world's largest collectible auctioneer.

In 1966, the Beatles upset sensibilities with their "Yesterday -- and Today" album cover picturing the Fab Four in butcher smocks amid chunks of meat and chopped-up parts of toy dolls.Public indignation led to a quick recall of the offending covers, most of which were destroyed by Capitol Records. The record was reissued in more ho-hum wrappings. More than a few shrewd folks surmised there might one day be some value to the banned covers.They were right. A stereo version of the original album in sealed, mint condition recently sold for $15,000.

Coloring books that in the past could be purchased for a pittance in five-and-dime stores have caught the eye and captured the heart of collectors who shell out sizable sums for certain examples.Although there is little collector interest in examples that picture things of a general nature -- such as flowers, birds, country scenes or children -- it's a whole different picture for books that depict popular story books, comic book and Disney characters, or radio, TV, movie and western stars.

The Hereford wrestling program has long prided itself on hard work and conditioning. An ideal example is the Bulls' senior 140-pound wrestler Jonny Volz. After going 26-15 as a junior, qualifying for states but unable to place, Volz put in extra time during the offseason in a bid to make the most of his senior season. So far, so good. A team captain, Volz is 15-0 with 10 pins in helping lead the No. 10 Bulls to a 14-1 record. Volz also plays baseball and is involved in Future Business Leaders of America.

Back then, in the grunge rock-and-gangsta rap-littered '90s, the idea of Mint Condition was dated. An organic, self-contained band in R&B? The days of Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus and Chaka Khan, the Bar-Kays and Slave were long gone. Producer-driven New Jack Swing -- with its busy, jittery, sample-heavy concoctions -- ruled urban airwaves at the time, blurring the lines between rap and R&B. But in blew Mint Condition: a sextet from Minneapolis with a sleek, inviting sound, playing real instruments and writing heart-felt joints about "pretty brown eyes."

I was one of the masses that converged on wet farmland in New York state in 1969 to create the Woodstock experience. To this day, I consider those three days to be a watershed event. Among many memories I took home (and put away) was a copy of the beautifully done program that was to have been handed out before all the chaos. Most of the programs were loaded on a pickup truck and left on the grounds. Late Saturday night of the festival, some friends and I came upon them and burned thousands upon thousands of them to keep warm through the night.

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, the lunch hour echoed with the sounds of the steel-sided lunchbox, now glorified as a collectible in a new exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. Encased there like artifacts or jewels are the barn-shaped working-class pail and the picture-stamped square school lunchboxes we remember. Some of these are in "mint condition" -- never dented, never lost and recovered, never used as a booster seat or crudded up with crumbs and curdled milk. Some sell for hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

One of the quickest ways to become a child again at this time of year is to take a bite of a mint candy cane. But the pleasure of mint isn't found only in red and white sticks of candy. The Starbucks in Mount Washington sells hundreds of cups of Peppermint Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Mocha a week. "People tell us that they miss it when we discontinue it until next season," store manager Dawn Drater says. At Naron's, Baltimore candy maker since 1905, sales manager Murph Scherr says: "Our mint truffles are one of the holiday's best sellers and our after-dinner mints are very popular.
