47|365 Pagoda & Dragon (2/20/11)

Feb202011_sunday_0025a
On display in our living room is a wood carved chest that my husband’s grandfather sent home to his children when he was in China as a Merchant Marine. This is a view of one portion of the top of the chest.  It has carvings all over the front as well as each of the four sides. Inside it is lined with either cedar or sandlewood so when you open it you get a nice whiff of the wood.  Inside it says:

Golden Dragon Co.
Wood Carved Factory
Chest Factory Goods
and
Furniture Etc
Broadway Shanghai

Of note today:  Keith cooked a nice meal and spent some time repairing one of our toilets again (always a fun way to spend an afternoon and I appreciate it very, very much).  I worked on transcribing another old letter and then wrote about it this post, Mineola, Trains and Albid, for my other blog.
