movie theater popcorn - both the sound of the popper, and the smell - happy memories of Sat. matinees

I have some Big Jim dolls, a set of Kiss collector cards, some old drawings, some jewelry my mom gave me, a set of pewter glasses from Germany, some nutcrackers, my Presidential Physical Fitness certificate signed by Jimmy Carter and the patch that came with it, and probably a bunch of other stuff that is still at my parents' house!

Atari 2600
Commodore 64
Marantz 2270 receiver from my Uncle
Pendant and Ukrainian prayer book from 1st communion
pocket knife and watch from my Grandfather
Baseball cards
Transformers/G.I. Joe toys
5 first place and 1 grand winner ribbons from a science project in 4th grade
All report cards from school
 
My pride and joy is my report from 10th grade history. I was always arguing with the teacher as to why we learned about the Holocaust, but not the Holodomor. So him being a smartass, assigned me the Holocaust for my report. I did my report on Gen. Patton instead, got a 4% (yes 4) on it, and slapped that thing on my fridge with pride. He was still my favorite teacher.

My dad kept his uniforms,etc from WWII.  When our oldest grandson was 8 & into all things military my mother got a army fatigue shirt & sewed on some of the patches, strips, etc from my dad's uniforms.  This shirt has gone through 4 more of my dad's greatsons & is a family treasure.
A great idea for your family.
