The Oddment

These are items that do not qualify as road trips - not even day trips. Some have been linked to from somewhere on the site while others have been pointed to only by links in email to specific groups or individuals. Occasionally I've thought of somehow "normalizing" them but it never got beyond being a thought until I came upon the word "oddment". From Merriam-Webster online:

Main Entry: odd·ment
Pronunciation: 'äd-mənt
Function: noun
1 a : something left over : REMNANT b plural : ODDS AND ENDS
2 : something odd : ODDITY

Definition #1 fit perfectly and I'm sure some will think that #2 is also on the mark. Combine that with the fact that it sort of rhymes with "recent" & "decent" and I had the key for pulling together these links:
