You know what I miss?

Film canisters.  Those little suckers had about a million uses and I miss having them lying about to grab when the impulse strikes.  A couple of really special buttons, those small shells you were picking up on the beach, scraps of embroidery thread, dog treats for walks, Pebbles for sneaky lunch treats, mixed paints - yeah, I could go on for a while.

I don't think Dad threw one away in the entire course of his life.

I miss having a drawer full of empty film canisters.
