When I was about Alex's age my father gave me his coin collection. It went back to the early 1900s and I vaguely recall that it looked like he had stopped collecting in the mid 60s. My job was to get the collection up to date and keep it current. I stuck with it until the early 90s.
A few years back I told Alex the collection would be his when he grew up. That time has apparently come as a few months ago I walked into the kitchen to find him bringing the collection back up to date.
I wonder if there's a picture of me doing this same thing 30 years ago.
