I couldn't believe what I saw when I was tipped off about the sale of a piece of playground equipment on Facebook.

Kimberly LaRoche of Utica is selling a piece of MY history.

And she may be selling a piece of YOUR history, too. It's the old merry-go-round from Masonville Elementary School.

I can tell by looking at it that it's the same one I rode many times when I was a kid.

Masonville Elementary School became Beacon School before being sold to a Pentecostal church.

But the memories are still there and always will be. I'm still very thankful that I got a chance to tour the old school before I no longer could.

And I wish I had a place for that old merry-go-round, but I just don't. I hope it finds a good home.
