Rodger Pettichord Posted November 22, 2018 Share Posted November 22, 2018 Hi all. Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. On this day, we Americans give thanks for the nation and its bounty. We gather for a meal. stuff ourselves silly, watch sports on TV, and try to ignore the weird uncle who always has loud opinions on every subject. As for me, one of the things I like to do is take some time and make a list of the things I'm most deeply thankful for. This year, I was surprised to see an old, worn-out coat make the list. It was my Dad's sheepskin high-altitude coat from WWII. He gave it to me when I went off to college, and I wore it (despite the fact that I was a size bigger) through many a winter until it basically fell apart. I loved that coat and the father who bequeathed it to me, and I find myself able to smell and feel it even now that it's gone. My question is -- do you have a piece of clothing that carries deep memories for you? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
