When I was a little girl, my great-grandmother had this jewelry box on her dresser. It was wonderful, exotic, black lacquer, painted with scenes from Japan. When you opened the lid it had a tiny dancing Geisha. The sides had tiny red tassles and opened each on their own, and the entire box lifted back to reveal one last compartment, all lined in red silk. When she passed away in the mid-90s, the box disappeared. It's the one thing from her that I really would have liked to have. Last year my grandfather passed away, and I went over to help with sorting his property. In the back of his storage room, tucked into the bottom shelf of a long-since rejected end-table, I found this box. Carefully, removing it from the shelf, I was delighted to see that it was in very good condition, in spite of being at least 65 years old. Now that I had found it, would I be allowed to keep it? My mother replied, "Oh that old thing, Dad has been trying to get me to take that for years." I now display it in a place where I can enjoy it every day. 64/100 Days
