One last time: Shine...shine... (The article) Robert Sheridan bobsheridan Re: Shine Kits

I have an in-law in his sixties who is now a successful and prosperous businessman. In a conversation at his home not too long ago he referred to his humble immigrant-parent roots and days spent shining shoes in Journal Square (Jersey City? Newark?). He then brought out his old shine box to prove the point, a tangible tie to his up-from-the-bottom hard-working roots.

Interesting the mementoes we to hang onto.

What do you hang onto wherever you go over the years?
