    When I was in my 60s I saw an adorable stuffed cat for sale that I fell in love with. It was so realistic. I changed my mind about buying it when I was told it was made out of rabbit fur. Oh well, my live cat is the real thing.

    You don’t throw the Teddy away. He just doesn’t go on all of the trips with you anymore. He sits at home and waits like a good buddy does. I still have ALL of my Teddies.

    When I was 6 my father brought me a stuffed dog from NYC. He immediately became indispensable to me. Flash forward over 50 years and I still have him. He’s barren of fur, slightly moth eaten, missing one eye, but I would never throw him away.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Alan might kill me for this, but as a little kid, he DID carry around a blanket. Actually, it was my blue chenille bedspread, which he inherited when the corners became twisted and grey. When it started to rot, Mom cut it up into smaller pieces so he’d have even more corners to chew on. By the time these pieces deteriorated, he was old enough to go to Beaver camp (junior Scouts in Canada), and Dad suggested he have a ceremonial blankie burning in the fireplace. Alan stuffed his remaining blankies into a shoebox. Dad put lighter fluid over the contents, made a hole in the lid, pulled out a wick of blankie, and the solemn ceremony took place. Al, with sadness and stoicism, sat and watched the box burn to ashes as Dad sat beside him with his arm around his shoulder. It was a coming of age for my brother and a time when Dad proved, beyond a doubt, that he understood kids better than anybody we knew!

    Were you not paying attention over at “Peanuts” the last few weeks? They just wrapped up a story line where Linus went to camp for a couple (or so) of weeks!

    You’ll never hear the end of it at camp.
