Vernie was my neighbor in Beckley. I know she collected pitchers. I bought her one and brought it to her. She went on and on about how much she liked it. She put it in her collection. One time she wanted some squirrel meat. I “acquired” a couple and she cleaned them for a meal. I watched her cleaning them. Precious memories for a beautiful lady. Until we meet again! 🌸🌸🌸
