Starting a new idea today, #SouvenirSaturdays. Every Saturday I'm going to post a souvenir from my life, a book, a memento, a family heirloom etc., to tell parts of my story. I hope you will do the same, and I will pick someone every week to get a signed copy of "Souvenir" and a letter from me. Can't wait to read more about you guys and hear some stories from your lives.
Around 1900, my great great grandmother gave this gold pocket watch to my great great grandfather on their wedding day. It was passed down to me from my grandfather on my graduation from high school. My grandpa was Jim Holcomb, World War II Navy Pilot, calculator salesman, seafood lover, collector of bawdy jokes, and world class crossword puzzler. I hope to pass on this tradition to one of my grandchildren one day. By then, this gold watch will be probably 150 years old. #SouvenirSaturdays
