My great-grandfather’s handkerchief box:
He was a farmer, and a lodge member. Inside are two bandanas, various receipts, lodge jewelry, a card from the Maryland Horse and Mule Company, and my favorite item, his business card. It has what I’m thinking is a philosophy of life inscribed on the back:
Y’all — what are your favorite family objects? Or alternately, if you hate your family and/or their objects, what are your most loathed?
