One of the ironies of life is that the least valued objects get the most use. Because this blanket was “ugly” it went everywhere and did everything, from the back seats of vehicles to the bottoms of pet carriers, in good times and bad. It covered gross picnic tables and swaddled sick pets. It stayed by our side like a family friend.
