My great grandfather, Albert Larkin Baker's cuff-links, circa 1890-1900. These have now been past down 6 generations from Albert to my grandfather, to my father, to me...I'm not sure why that happened when my oldest brother should have had them. All of them had AB initials. I think maybe I ended up with them simply because I tend to be the keeper of "old stuff", and not because I also had AB initials. I assumed my brother had been asked if he wanted them before. So, last year I past them down in the family to his son, the oldest Baker grandson because I wanted them to stay in the Baker line and that made the most sense. They are in excellent hands, and I really thought I was doing the best thing, but after I could see my oldest brother was disappointed he got skipped, and didn't even know about them at all. Luckily, he's not the type to be mad. Here's the lesson - applicable in many of life's situations - "Ask, don't assume." :)
