a closer look
i meant to talk about a couple of the knick knacks in the photo. on the coffee table, you'll see a lighter and an ash tray. (my dad smoked like a chimney, my mom did at times and said she didn't) on the end table in the back ground, there is another ash tray and a reddish candy dish. my grandmother made all of those. she was really into ceramics and such. the cool lighter was always a favorite of mine. it never worked but i loved the sparks. the black ashtray in the back ground was shaped like a flat triangle, and it had 1964 coins arrayed around the center. i don't know if my brother or i saved this stuff. i hope so, they have such great memories.
