Buried Treasure

Today I decided to start to clean our basement. There was a big box with some stuff in it from when we moved here, and as I began to look through it I thought that if I didn't miss it in the last 7 years, it was all probably stuff we didn't need. Well, most of it was junk, but when I saw these pictures, it was like I had found a treasure! My dad has been gone for 9 months now, and finding old photos of him with one of my kids was quite a find. Steven was 2 here, and he is 16 now. I love the look on his face in this 1st picture....I wonder what my dad was playing and singing.
Watching how his grandpa's fingers move on the strings. There's my grandpa too!
Can I try Grandpa?

That is a treasure! Never toss boxes and their contents without looking through them first. (That's how I found my lost stock certificate.)

Was this at Dave's grandparent's house? I remember going out to Long Pond one year for something.

I would never toss a box and it's contents without looking through it 1st, but I really didn't think that there was anything of value in it.

Yes, this was at Dave's grandparent's house.

That is really great. I'm still hoping to stumble across pictures like these.
