My Box

Mum has managed to get a couple of empty boxes now, so I immediately took charge of it.
She took it back when she started sorting through stuff from the desk and putting papers she won't need and can be recycled.
She found an old picture of Grampie, this is probably from 20 years ago. Plus she found his draft card from 70 years ago, an old car title, and some vaccination records too.

The trick is to bite bite bite it until it's not good for anyone's use but yours!

Derby, that box looks exactly the right size for you. Your mum will need to get another box for herself.

That box is great but the things your Mum are finding are cool! Memories for her to talk about with your Grampie.

Those are the kind of memories that made Jan happy and teary when she did her mother's papers.

Well, she needs to get another box for you! It must be conjuring up all kinds of memories for your mom to go through grampie's stuff. Our mom loved hearing her grandparents' stories.

That's your box, Derby.

Some of the old papers might be worth keeping as a 'snapshot' of another time.

It is very interesting to find photos and other belongings that have been long forgotten. We think that box is perfect for you and you should be able to keep it.

It's really just WRONG that she took the box back. But I really enjoyed the Grampie picture. He looks like a very sweet man with a nice smile!
