Among the treasures were many full and part rolls of wallpaper from the days when we had wallpapered walls. My son and his wife were so pleased with one of our finds that they took a roll home, snipped a sample and put it in a frame on their toyroom wall for their kids. They were able to show the kids a photo I took in 1976 of Daddy asleep in the room with that wallpaper.
One of the benefits of being a bowerbird is that the kids can reconnect with their past via the junk we have saved.
