I remember buying two of these at a railway station many years back as a kid. I bought a keychain with an 'A' (cause my name starts with A, duh) and a 'K'.

6. CHRISTMAS SLEIGH
We're on the countdown to Christmas day now and this little fellow is ready to deliver his foreshore goodies. Keep your eyes open if you're down on the river and perhaps you'll see his little sleigh sliding across the mud collecting more treasures.
The sleigh driver is a mid century (or earlier) snow baby and his sleigh is being pulled by a collection of broken toy lead horses. The sleigh is made up of a betty lamp hook (c.19th century) a medieval knife handle, two Tudor cloak hooks and an early 17th century bone pocket sundial. His booty includes scraps of gold, semi-precious stones, glass (paste) jewels, a Roman ring intaglio, a Roman melon bead and a pearl bead - all found by eye on the Thames foreshore.

관습적으로 그랬던 건지 진심이었는지 ‘존경하는 인물’ 칸에 부모님을 적어가던 시절이 있었습니다. 그런가하면 청출어람 하겠다는 심보인지 머리가 컸다고 부모님의 말에 족족 반기를 들던 때도 있었습니다. 스물넷의 나는 조금씩 부모님의 마음을 이해하게 되었지만 아직도 부모님이 주는 무한한 사랑을 당연한 것처럼 누리고 있었습니다.
