Rummaging in Boxes

Anthony and Grandpa 001

I have always been a person who likes to rummage. I like rummaging through garage sales, flea markets, and the like.  I probably should be one of the hosts of Canadian Pickers–except that I think the whole thing is probably staged and I dislike how it makes people think their riches are in other people’s hands.

Today’s Perfect Moment originates from this. This afternoon, I came across something while going through some boxes.  I found a wonderful childhood photo of me and my Grandpa.  I hadn’t seen this picture in quite some time, but I was glad to find it.  It brought back some wonderful memories.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    Funny how you can predict the decade the photo was taken in based on the quality. I do remember the days when adults would smoke indoors around kids! My mom would smoke inside the car with the windows rolled up! 😭

    I love old photos & the first thing I noticed was that ash tray! I didn’t realize that green bottle said “Wink” I thought it was the sparkling water stuff. Interesting!
