I had some stuff stored for the last four, maybe five years, and I finally got around to getting the boxes home and going through them. There are books, discs, and some other things that I am weeding out. You find yourself wondering why you bothered to keep some things. There are a few items I rediscovered that I forgot I had.
I found my father's Waltham pocket watch. Dad died in 1997. I only have a couple of items of his so it was nice to find this. Actually I never lost it, I just forgot I had it. Many years ago he worked as a heavy duty mechanic and because of shop regulations he never wore a ring or wore a watch for many years. I remember he had more than one (I wonder what happened to the others . . . ). I was in elementary school in those years and I remember there was a bit of competition among him and the other guys in the shop regarding pocket watches, chains, and watch fobs. Everyone he worked with had one.
I have not seen anyone use a pocket watch in years. Everyone these days uses their phone and no one foresaw that you would use a phone for everything. Some items should come back into fashion.
