Paw Paw's Jacket



This is Rosalyn.
She is our firstborn grandchild.
She is two.


See that awesome jacket she's wearing?
It was my husband's.
Her Paw Paw.
The jacket is forty years old.


Vintage.








I have saved it all these years through all the many moves.
Like.. over 20 times we have moved.
Each time we do..
I clean out.
Throw away.
Lighten the load.
The box with this jacket was always a keeper.
It always traveled with us everywhere we go.





You see..
I had a vision.
I always could picture my grandkids wearing it.
....One day.



That one day is now this day.
She is the first grandchild to wear her Paw Paw's Jacket.
The plan is to pass it down and let each one have a turn.
Little sister
Litte brother
Future cousins
My grandchildren
Paw Paw's Jacket


















This will probably be her reaction when it's time for her to 
pass it down to her little sister.
She loves wearing her Paw Paw's jacket almost as fiercely
 as she loves her Paw Paw.




For once I'm glad I'm a pack rat.
I'm glad I have always loved vintage.
I'm glad the Lord let me see the third generation to wear
Paw Paw's Jacket.
