We first met the camp blanket in 1980 when it was used as a moving cover over a chaise lounge that belonged to my husband’s grandmother. We were moving the lounge from our hometown in western Texas to Oregon. At that time the camp blanket’s life had been eventful, and it was residing in my mother-in-law’s collection of “things we cannot throw away.” Later, in 1980, it went to rest in darkness until 2006 it became the home base for a tortoise shell persian cat named “Manchie.” We hope, with its vintage years, it has many more happy and productive years to come its way.
