The Case of the Missing Buttons
There's a little word play for you!
I was heart sick because I could not for the life of me find the old case of buttons that my grandmother gave me. The container was an old tea tin that actually belonged to my Lithuanian great-grandmother (my maternal grandfather's mother). The buttons were saved by my grandmother, and have a range from the 1940's to the 1980's. As a small child, I used to love to dump out the buttons, and run my fingers over them in wonder at the sheer variety presented.
Well, one day I had an idea of where to look, and lo and behold! There it was...
So what was the first thing I did upon finding it? Why, dump everything out and finger through all of the buttons, of course!
