I know it's just an item but it's an item that has survived. Been through the hands of many people. Survived scrap heap calls during the wars and a majority of people that just want new stuff and think old stuff is junk.

It saddens me (course I am also working on a total of 7 hours of sleep since friday night....) (so emotions are a little more on the surface)stoopid insomnia

This is exactly how I feel about the loss of something old. I once dropped a Jim Bean decanter when I was about 16 and I was nearly in tears.
