Not the greatest picture, but I'm glad we held onto it all these years, if only to see Patches in his prime!
Fourteen years later, Patches made the trip to college with me (yep, that's my dorm room with Patches on my pillow). On my first night there, we had a "getting to know you" meeting in the dorm, and we were each instructed to bring along a special item. I took my Patches, and I think he got the biggest "Awww!" of all.
P.S. Don't miss the wee bag giveaway! You still have until Sunday night to enter!
