I pulled this out of a box in my closet the other day. It’s just a few little things I’ve held on to over the years.
There’s a “Nixon For President” button, which is funny I suppose because I never liked the dirty rotten scoundrel. Did anybody?
A button/ribbon for the journey to the moon in July of 1969 with Neil Armstrong and the boys.
A plastic spoon I saved from the ship, Empress of England, that I took from Montreal to Liverpool in 1969.
A gum cigar that says “Win with Dick.” Nixon again, sorry about that.
A Russian Habs pinback that looks like an ordinary pinback except that’s it’s Russian and it’s old.
A Habs Stanley Cup pinback from 1986.
A pinback showing Pierre Trudeau giving the finger.
A nice metal Forum pin.
A 1987 playoff ticket stub from the Forum, a game I was at involving, I think, the Quebec Nordiques.
A Che Guevara pinback made from leather.
A WHA ticket featuring the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Nationals sometime around 1974.
A couple of Forum matchbooks.
A Habs/Oilers pin when they played an exhibition game in the 1980′s for charity in Ottawa.
A couple of 1988 Calgary Olympics pins.
And a beautiful handmade silver Habs pin my ex-brother-n-law had made for me for Christmas many years ago. I miss my ex-brother-in-laws.
