What do you have that has sentimental value to you?

Recommended Posts

Having them kinda helped bring on that transition where you realize what really matters in your life besides the material things.

Yep. Well said, well said.

Besides my 1965 John Lennon Casino and autographed pic of John and Yoko,I have my 50th Ann. 2004 Strat and my 2004 Tele autographed by Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives.I also have 2 autographed pix that are near and dear to my heart because they are pix of my favourite actress from the 60s who I was absolutely smitten with as she was about the same age as me and was amazingly beautiful.That actress is Angela Cartwright who played Penny Robinson on Lost In Space the science fiction weekly show that came on every Sunday from the mid to late 60s.Angela also starred in the Sound Of Music movie with Julie Andrews.

I have some family things dating back more than a century but...

 

I guess having had a cupla home fires convinced me that some "stuff" is nice and something to protect for family purposes, but it's the memories that have the true value and the "stuff" is only a mnemonic to jog one's thoughts.

 

My Dad's WWII .45 already has gone to the eldest male in the family's next generation who felicitously happens to be a Lt. Col. in the National Guard. I still have his combat knife handmade for each WWII soldier by the local dentist in the tiny town where I spent my first few years. It will cut heavy leather saddle skirting as easily as if it were butter.

Hey Brad 1,I love your Luds,I believe that your particular set is called the Big Beats.My buddy who I've been in several bands with since I was 15 has the same set but the finish is Walnut-his are from around the same era too.Ludwigs were the Rolls Royce of drums back then and you'd never see a set of them made in China like the beginner sets are these days.

 

BTW my buddy has Zildijan cymbals too,even though Ludwig markets Paiste cymbals.

Thank you very much! [thumbup]

Yep, it was called the Big Beat Outfit. And I will never part with them. Never. [biggrin]

A beautiful 16 gauge shotgun my grandfather got in France during WWI and a very nice refracting telescope he got about the same time.

 

A one-carat diamond that came out of a tie pin from a great great uncle that is in my wife's engagement ring.

 

Letters, pictures, and a service .45 belonging to my late dad from WWII.
