More sorting while packing. I found a file folder with some ancient papers from the ’90s. That’s the 1990s, kids. Inside were the old German registration from our ’72 Super Beetle, a cuckoo clock warranty, and the manual from our first stove top espresso maker. I’m not sure which treasure made me happiest, but I was prompted to make some coffee on the stove.

Just like old times.
