My husband has this blanket, it is affectionately known as “brown blank”. His great aunt Marge gave it to him when he was just a wee lad.
When Danny and I first started dating I went over to his apartment one evening for dinner. There was a terrible (but neat) thunder and lightening storm. Danny had no couch in his apartment, just a couple of chairs. So he made a makeshift “couch” out of a few blankets on the floor and then brown blank to snuggle with. We stayed up til 2:00 or so in the morning watching the storm before I headed home.
Bob used to try to sleep on it and hold it in his mouth (on penalty of death!).
Brown blank now has its place on our bed and if the kids are lucky, they get to cuddle with it.
One day recently after baths I put both of our nakey babes in on the bed and wrapped them in brown blank. Boy were they happy!
