This week's theme is OLD (worn out, torn, past, etc).
Here's mine from The Chines Bell Murders by Robert Van Gulik (p. 76):

I could never give you a consecutive account of the terrible wrong that myself and my family have suffered! Your Honour will find everything in those documents."
Leaning back in her chair she started weeping again.
Judge Dee ordered Sergeant Hoong to give her a cup of strong tea and then unwrapped the package. It contained a thick roll of documents, yellowed by age and long use.
