I got some clothes and a swell electric garlic roaster for Christmas this year, but by far the coolest gift comes from my dear departed Grandma Mildred.
It’s a crib blanket that I used as a child forty years ago, handmade by Grandma. The theme seems to be travel. It says: “BY AIR, BY SEA, BY LAND” and it depicts boys and girls employing various means of locomotion: an airplane, a hot air balloon, a sailboat, a train and an automobile.
Apparently Mom kept it on a shelf all these years and decided it’s time to pass it on to the next generation. Thanks Mom.
