In the last couple of hours I found out that this beautiful piece of Japanese metal work will once again be in my possession! This was originally my uncles toy when he was a kid, when he out grew it he passed it down to me as he was in his early 20's. When he was in his early 30's he had some kids, my cousins of course.
Anyway he asked if he could have it back so he could pass it down to his kids. As I was completely in love with this thing I had absolutely no problem complying with this request. I was not very happy on the inside to say the least. Anyway I’m now very happy on the outside to have found out after all this time he has granted me the honour of once again being the custodian of this awesome toy. More details and reminiscing after I get the ‘keys’ on Friday.
