my parents were rich in daughters.
there are five of us, two have died, and never any sons.
i am the baby, by over a decade.
my mom called me bonus, but i know i was, shall we say, surprise.
one of my sisters moved to the north country several years ago, after staying "home" a long time, then living out west for a short time, she settled here.
and friday we had tea in her fine new apartment, and she gave me these little treasures.
these please me, most especially the chair.
