Years ago we were handed an old yellowed shirt box tied up with twine. Nick's parents were cleaning up and wanted to get rid of stuff. This box had the words "Nick's Box of Memories" written in big block letters on the top.
Inside were old report cards, drawings, black and white photos, a tiny baby outfit and his childhood Mickey Mouse watch, the crystal on it so scratched up and foggy you could barely see underneath to the Mickey. Nick loved that watch as a child, it was obvious in the way it was completely worn out.
Mortimer was the first name Walt Disney had chosen for his new cartoon mouse back in 1928, until his wife Lillian suggested Mickey. I felt this was fate!
Mr. Mortimer had to completely gut the insides, replaced the crystal and the band and ta dah! A brand new watch! Happy Valentine's Day to Nick!
