Treasure Chest Thursday - Dad's Red Beanie

I can vaguely remember my father referring to a red beanie that he wore as a child but I don't remember any details like why it meant so much to him. I found the beanie in the basement stash last September which means that he and my grandparents saved it for the rest of his life.

I had seen it before on film the couple of times that Dad broke out the home movie of my grandparents' wedding and visits to my great-grandparents. You may remember that I had a VHS copy of that film digitized last year. The beanie makes it's appearance at about 12:32.

Also in the basement stash were these photos of Dad wearing the beanie. He's such a cutie!

How darling! To have kept it that long, it truly must have had special meaning. What a wonderful keepsake!
