Super Bowl 2010

No - I'm not talking about football . . .

Today an older gentlemen that I work with told me that he had something for me in his truck. I walked outside with him and he proceeded to say, "this belonged to my great-great grandmother and I have seen my grandmother make biscuits in it many-a time." First of all, I couldn't believe that he would even consider giving it away, especially to someone who wasn't even in his family. He said, "It was in our house and my wife used it even now and then, but the other day she told me to throw it out in the shed. I thought about it and decided I wanted someone to have it who I knew would love and appreciate it so I want you to have it if you want it." Are you kidding me? I thought it was the neatest old bowl and to think that he wanted me to have it meant a lot to me. I asked him how old he thought it was and he said he figured probably around 85 years old at least, so to me . . . it is indeed a "Super" bowl.
