What do you cherish that's old?
Not necessarily an antique... not something that once belonged to your grandparents or even your parents that you've kept because it was theirs. (For example of NOT - I have one of my father's poetry books from his high school days.) But instead, something that YOU picked up along YOUR path that you kept because it brings back memories.
I have the glass in which I was served my first 'legal' drink. On my 18th birthday my friends took me out to a bar (same bar we'd been drinking in every weekend for the previous four months) and bought me my 'first legal drink.' The waitress thought that was cute, and gave me the glass back after washing it. Everyone at the table signed their names with a grease pencil (no markers in those days) with the date and location. I've used it ever since (48 years) as a desktop pencil holder.
