My parents have a few old faded photos of their parents and even grandparents hidden away somewhere. They have a more of a collection documenting the childhood of me and my brothers. Sweetous and I have quite a pile of photos from our younger days and of Piglette and LB from early childhood thru high school. All of these artifacts are subject to deterioration and destruction from fire, wind, insurrections and so on.
