I was in­trigued reading the story “A Trea­sure Re­claimed” (Fe­bru­ary-march 2017) by Jo-anne Sheanh. Ever since I was a teen, I en­joyed reading my fa­ther’s au­to­graph book that was dated 1926-1937. Just like Ms. Sheanh, my dad’s lit­tle book in­cludes sim­i­lar art­work and po­etry—much of it very good, in my opin­ion! I loved reading the fas­ci­nat­ing en­tries from his school­mates at West Van­cou­ver High School, work­mates at the Bank of Toronto, hik­ing bud­dies, and one en­try from my mother in 1935. I met some of his bud­dies over the years, while oth­ers I only heard my dad speak of. He rel­ished reading and re-reading his lit­tle leather-bound book un­til his death in 2007 at al­most 95 years of age. This is def­i­nitely one of my favourite fam­ily heir­looms.
