I found this item a couple of weeks ago. It is a glass pitcher. I am not sure of the manufacture. However, one just like it was used by my Dad in his garage to store used oil in it from his oil changes of his lawn mower or other small farm equipment . It was always there in his garage,as far back as I can remember. I can almost see him carrying this pitcher with black oil in it. I was lucky enough to get his pitcher when he moved off the farm before he died 14 years ago.
I then found one exactly like it in Boise, ID about 10 years ago at a thrift store. I had them both displayed for a while. When we moved to ND, I put them away. They are in a box in my basement. Then I came across this one at a garage sale. It was only $1. I had to get it. No, I don’t need three of them. Yes, I could have dug one or both of them out from storage. Yes, I have this one displayed in my glass cabinets in my kitchen.
Memories sure are powerful movers. I really do not need this pitcher, but I couldn’t just leave it. I know that if I ever come across another one, unless it is outrageously priced I will buy it. I just can not, not buy it. It reminds me too much of my Dad.
So do you have several items of something because it reminds you of someone or of some special memory? I would love to hear about it.
