A few years ago when I was at my grandma’s house (the one that passed away in January), I commented on
her statue. I said that I liked it and I asked her if I could have it someday. She said that she would make sure I got it. Well, she moved out of her apartment about two years ago, so the statue had been at my parents’ place, hiding out in the upstairs closet. This past weekend I drove to Philly to be with my parents and I brought Kay home with me.
Why "Kay"? My grandma’s name was Katherine (like a wonderful writer/friend I know;), but she went by Kay. So now I have her in my apartment. She doesn’t match one thing that I own, but Kay will always have a place where I live, somehow and somewhere.
