Treasure Chest Thursday - Otters

My treasure for today is a pair of otters.  My grandfather, Ross Hannon, was an avid outdoorsman.  He made his living outside - farming, hunting, fishing.  He owned the ceramic otter shown below (on left) and sometimes carried it in his pocket.  I was lucky enough to receive it when he died.  My daughter created me the one on the right one day when she was about about 12.  She knew I cherished my otter and wanted him to have company in the display cabinet.

Now I am lucky enough to have two otters to cherish! 

It's a good day.


  1. Your grad student daughter will be delighted to see you posted her otter for all of us to see. Wonderful, I couldn't make that at any age. Cute, and sweet story Kathy.

  2. Wonderful! Both as sweet as can be. Who knew an otter could be that huge in AWWWW factor??

  3. Both your otters are indeed treasures - and your daughter sounds like a real treasure as well!

  4. Thanks all. You always hear - it's the little things in life. Here is the proof.
