When I was 5 yrs old, I had my tonsils out, and, when I cam home in the heat of the summer, all I was allowed to do was sit outside on a lounge chair and eat ice cream

My elderly neighbor, Mrs Cooney, came over with a gift for me..maybe an odd gift for a 5 yr old, but, one I have treasured forever. It was a black and white porcelain dog planter. It sits proudly in my china cabinet, and, I wonder how it lasted for 55 years in one piece, but it has, and I am so glad.

Somewhere, I have assorted report cards, and my grammar school autograph book, and sundry other recolllections of times past....
