Our good luck charm
When we were packing madly for the big move from Sunnyvale, our good friend Pat gave us a box of packing paper. At the time, she worked at a major auction house, and came into contact with a plethora of packing paper.
Bill wanted to wrap a really small item in paper, and wondered "How will we keep from losing such a small item in a wad of paper?" He pulled out just such a wad to discover a very small treasure already in the paper. It is a miniature goblet, only two inches tall, with gold flowers and leaves and green shamrocks.
We asked Pat about it, and she said that an auction customer was probably missing this piece from the set they purchased, but that it would be difficult to find its rightful owner. She recommended that we keep it.
So, we see this little goblet as our own good luck charm. And it doesn't take up too much room.
