So the other day I went to visit my parents. It was a typical visit. Mom offered to make me food my dad told me about the neighbors all was well and normal. Then it was time to leave, I get in my car and I notice something in the back seat. After a closer look I realize its 4 banker’s boxes FULL of my stuff from when I was a kid. I turned to ask my dad why he put it in my car and this is the reply he gave me. “This is your shit, keep it at your house”.
Now let me rewind a little. Around 1987ish my parents had some custom cabinets installed in the kitchen and living room. My dad gave one really deep cabinet to me and my sister. He told us we could put whatever we wanted inside. So… I did. And well… I never threw anything away. The 4 banker’s boxes were the random contents of my life from 1987 until 1996.
I did go through the boxes and threw away most of contents. It mainly consisted of Mad Magazines, Sports Illustrates, ice hockey and baseball cards, cassette tapes, TONS of hats, pictures of me from my first school dance and team pictures of me on the HS baseball team and just… stuff.
I decided to go through it and take pictures of a few things that I though were interesting or worth showing. Anyway I present to you PSmyNameIsPhil’s Time Capsule
