My Very Own Patch

Hey Storytime Peeps!  I have something exciting to share with you today . . . my very own patch!!

Let me tell you why I'm so excited and give you the backstory of how this patch arrived in my mailbox yesterday.

First of all, Momma Sharon and her Dutch Oven Peeps are all about cooking and earning patches for their efforts.  She has an apron that she wears when cooking that has all these cool patches sewn on it.  A lot of other Chefs display their patches too.

Secondly, the mom of my AirT@B friend called Breezin', used to work in the movie/video distribution business.  When a new movie was released, the studios used to give them gifts.  One of the gifts was a denim jacket from Disney with patches of all their movies.  When the movie "Splash" was released in 1984, a patch for it was created.  

Thirdly, Momma Deb was doing some housecleaning and decided to part with the jacket, but this splashy (pun intended) patch caught her eye.  She snipped it off and sent it to Momma Sharon!!  And that's how it came to be.  Did you happen to notice it's in my colors too?!

Momma Sharon told me that she's going to sew it on her Chef's apron so everyone can see it and that just makes me smile.  Thanks Breezin'. Thanks Momma Deb for sending me my very own patch!!  Happy Wednesday everyone and until I have another little Story to share, always remember . . . 

"Peace, Love, & Personal Patches"
