Penfold's journey

This is Penfold, who I have known for about 25 years, since I was 6. I remember my mom giving him to me; I think she got him as a free gift at a shoe store. He was always my favorite stuffed animal and is named for a character in the cartoon series Danger Mouse, which I adored at that age, and which is probably still funny even now.

Penfold is with me here at school, as opposed to, say, in my old room at home, because I have no old room at home. When I was 20 my parents sold the house I grew up in, had an estate sale and moved to Florida, and since I was in the middle of college, I didn't get to take much with me. But I took Penfold, who, thanks to me, has lived in no fewer than a dozen residences around this great nation since then. It's been quite a life, after his humble beginnings at the shoe store. Granted, he almost exclusively has lived on closet shelves or in boxes, but I've hardly ever heard him gripe about that.

Not sure what prompted me to bring him down, or bring him up, but maybe it's all this grown-up talk of full-time jobs ....
