My grandfather passed away on Jan. 20th. I have his golf clubs. He loved to play the game and was the reason I had taken it up when i was just a kid. I used to play with him when one of his regular friends couldnt make the weekly game.
You dont realize how much someone means to you until there not there anymore.
I miss him so much.

I have temporary possession of my Great Grandfather's carpentry tools. They will be passing on to my son, his namesake.

I have a set of first generation copies of color slides from one of the missions to the moon, all taken with a Hasselblad camera and Carl Zeiss lenses.

Never seen them full size, as I never had the correct projector. I'm thinking of having them digitized too.

My pride and joy.

I have an entire set of Apollo Mission Patches. The ones worn by the crews. The company my parents worked for, Lion Brothers of Owings Mills MD, was the maker of the patches. My Dad and two of my uncles were the ones that made the originals. Their machines created a piano roll type pattern that then went to the factory and ran the big lumes. They were given back the Apollo 12 emblems from NASA after the completion of the mission as a thank you gift to each employee.
I also have a large Lionel Train Collection. Many were my dad's and others were given to me from other family members. Some date back to 1915 and run just as well as the day they were made.

I have a copy of the benchmark from solo climbing The Wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in 1973. Way cool.
I also have my g'grandfather's cooper tool chest. It's wood, handmade and is in the living room as a coffee table. Takes two of us to move.

How could I forget my autographed photo of Sally Ride! Roger Mellott, a friend of mine, was the psychologist for the astronauts. He got it for me after I begged for it.
