My mom came by this weekend and brought me a few treasures from the past. It's always fun to see something you haven't laid eyes on in years, total flashback. In case you couldn't tell, that's me. I was about 2 when this photo was taken. We were on a family road trip and passed through Sioux Narrows, Ontario.

The two vintage cuckoo clocks, one over 50 years old, are going to be cleaned and enjoyed again. My mom tells me how that little bird would rat her out when she was still living at home and came home late. It was bought by my grandmother, who died of leukemia when my mom was a teenager . She saved food coupons to buy this clock. A few years after she passed, there was a freak fire in the home and almost everything was burned. Only what had been taken out of the house before hand survived, and out of those very few items, this was one of them. I'm glad I have it now.
