My dad was a Lt. Colonel in the Air Force. He designed missles, as in Minute Man. That meant lots of traveling and in his day lots of cocktails. He always brought back the swizzle sticks. He got them on air planes, in hotels and bars. I thought those, along with the little hotel soaps were the greatest gifts ever. I've noticed they're starting to come back. I still have the collection he left. I also still bring home the little soaps.
