Don’t you love it when your friends have really nice friends, and then they become your friends as well? I’ve known bj for a while now, and therefore I have known Tasha for almost as long. The only trouble is Tasha lives in Georgia, so I don’t get to visit with her very often. She was in Seattle visiting bj during that hot week of ours, and they ventured north to have lunch with show and tell at my house. We had a lively visit, and before you know it, Tasha found out how much I adore vintage rosaries.
Well lucky, lucky me! This is what I received today – 12 rosaries and their memorable story. Tasha’s father-in-law practiced dentistry for nearly 50 years, and always took care of the nuns from the local parochial schools without charging a fee. In return, he received lots of free passes to Sunday pancake breakfasts, afghans the sisters knitted and rosaries.
The story is sweet, and this gift is so appreciated.
