Stinky and the Rocking Chair

When I got married and moved out, my father gave me the rocking chair that he had as a child. The chair was given to him when he was very small, by my great grandparents (Mom Mom and Pop Pop), as a souvenir from the Grand Canyon. A little later, he gave me his teddy bear as well, a Steiff named Stinky. My grandmother named the teddy bear Stinky because it was, well, always stinky. I’ve always displayed Stinky together with the rocking chair in my bedroom.

When I was going through that old box of photographs, I found pictures of my father with stinky sitting in the rocking chair. It really touched me.

It was such a wonderful find. I’m so happy that I can take care of them and love them as much as my father did.
