At my daughter's kindergarten graduation a bunch of years later, Mom said, "nice to see the football statue is still front and center in your living room."
"Dad picked a winner," I answered.
Mom's face drop.
"What's a matter, Mom?"
"I found the statue in an antique store on Lexington near Hunter. I bought it. Dad wasn't there."
I hugged her so hard she didn't realize I was crying.
p.s. Mom gave me Donald "T.D" Duck for my 40th birthday.
