Time Capsule





My father boxed these items up around 7/29/99 . I know this to be true because the New York Post was used to wrap these glasses ,cups, and other items. Kyle's favorite baseball player Kenny Rogers was on the mets according to one of the articles I read. Hey Joyce, there was a small bottle of champagne in the box. One of those little bottles you get at a wedding. The date read Sept. 12 1987, I'm thinking it came from Diane and Scott's Wedding. Since you are the Matriarch of the cousins I'm hoping you will know whose wedding the bottle came from. Its hard to believe but the bottle is unopened.

gee, I'm not sure who's wedding that could be? Diane & Scott wee married Sept. 7, 1991. Pat & Connie were married in Sept. but it was after your Mom passed. So Scott, I'm stumped!!

I knew Diane and Scott were married in Sept. I couldn't remember the year. I do remember that Mark, Pat, and I, took a one day tour of Washington DC after their wedding.
The Automotive Brake Mug isn't the only odd items there are two American International College cups and one AIC shot glass. Owen has a military beer stein from his days in Germany. There is also two big beer glasses that has Kyle and Chris name on it. I guess those were gifts from little John A wedding. The glass boot is from a hospital in Colorado My mother worked at. I think its from St. Lukes.
Liked I said yesterday my father boxed those items in July 99 and brought them to my house before he moved to Florida last year. I never opened the box until yesterday.
The wedding mystifies me. I don't think its anybody on my father's side.It must be a friend of his.
