As for memories, well, there is one that sticks with me to this day. We were pretty poor when I was really little, and toys were made with what we could find and use our imagination with. I found an old Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket, and we used the lid off of that as a frisbee. I still smile whenever I see one of those lids. Sentimental, yeah, but some good memories of fun with my dad.

About 20 years ago my mom gave me a cherry pitter. It was old and rusty, and she said it was an early inheritance.
This cherry pitter originally belonged to my grandmother. When we were kids there was a huge cherry tree in our backyard. We would climg up on ladders and pick those delicious sour cherries. After we got a big bowl of them, we would sit down at the kitchen table and take turns pitting the cherries with the cherry pitter. Then my mom would bake the best cherry pie anyone has ever had!
I have fond memories of the cherry pie making, the warm feeling you get when you sit around at the family table and work together on something as homey and delicious as a fresh baked cherry pie.
I told my mom I wanted the cherry pitter and she was happy to pass it along to another generation. Sadly, I lost it, I think my boyfirend's mother threw it away when she saw it in the drawer, thinking it was some old nasty tool that needed to be discarded.
It still makes me sad today that it is gone forever. I could never tell my mom that i lost it, she would be broken hearted too.

I have a beautiful old wooden music box that was given to me by my grandmother, which happened to be handed down to her when she was little by her mother and an old worn book that was my favorite bedtime story book as a child that I carried around everywhere *Rumplestiltskin*
Oh Bridget, that is so sad
