A Simple Box
This simple, plain beautiful box is a music box that plays "Impossible Dream". It was a Christmas gift to me many years ago, I think sometime in the 60's, from your G'ma and G'pa Johnson. It has ever since had a spot on my bedroom dresser. I hadn't opened it to play for a long time until a few days ago. I thought it was broken because it wouldn't play, even after I wound it a bit. Seems there is a bit of a secret to begin the music - you must push the little button on the front to the right and hold it for a second or two. I think this box may have been the first in my love of "boxes" !
