Another odd little treasure today .
I found this one day when my dad and I
were sorting some old coins .
I'll just bet I was a great help at 11years old !
Anyway my dad said I could have this gold brooch ,
I was very excited and felt very special
for all of about 10 minutes until I remembered
that my dad's birthday was coming up .
So what was I to do but sell it back to him ,
really I had some nerve even then !
With the princely sum of 40c I took myself off
and bought my dad a bottle of ink for his birthday .
I even remember I wrote so proudly in my diary
"I brought dad a bottle of Quink Ink for his birthday "
On the day of his birthday, after the excitement
of his new ink had worn off of course,
he handed me back this brooch and asked me
to mind it for him forever .
The ink was the last present I gave my dad
as he died 2 months later .
I am still minding his brooch forever .
Join in and show us your treasure .
