I wish more people felt that way and liked old things, I would be much more popular.

Rolling on the floor laughing Me too!
I read this once: A house has a ceiling light fixture with 6 glass globes. One globe is cracked.
The Englishman will leave it alone and treasure it as it is.
The Frenchman will move heaven and earth trying to find the exact match to replace the cracked globe.
The American will rip the whole thing out and buy a new one.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

More truth in that than is comfortable, Annie. Smiling

There are things I wish I had now that my younger self discarded. Feel fortunate to still have some 1908 Ball jars, a water pitcher with glass, and a pickle crock that all belonged to my great-grandmother; and some china that had belonged to my grandmother. Books and some few other things from them, and from my great-grandfather, I have already passed down to my great-grandnieces and great-grandnephew. They can have these other remembrances, as well--but later. Big Grin
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

I know what you mean; when my mom broke up housekeeping to go live with my sister, a lot of things got "lost" somewhere. I especially regret the loss of my dad's old hand tools. I'd like to pass on some of the things I have from family, but I'm waiting until my nieces/nephews get old (and hopefully wise) enough to appreciate them.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
