On a recent trip to the Antique Mall I happened to spot a vintage Bakelite View Master. There was a time you’d probably find one in almost every home. Back in the 1940’s they were primarily marketed to grown ups. But I remember enjoying Disney reels and Comic reels in mine as a kid. I don’t know what happened to that one, probably sold at a garage sale (silly me).
Well, there I was having a little moment, thinking about childhood and happily reminiscing about the joys of viewing those tiny images of exotic far away places. As a kid, I never dreamt that one day I might be floating down the Grande Canal in Venice. Mr. Right and I have been lucky to see so many beautiful destinations together. That’s when I thought, hey “wouldn’t this make a cool anniversary gift”? So far I’ve collected reels for Paris, London, Salzburg, Venice, Maui and Lucerne.
I think Mr. Right will be tickled. No matter where we go, life is a much sweeter journey when we enjoy the view together.
