One of my favorite possessions. Missmarkey gave it to me at the BC DC convention in 2011, just before I set off on a Route 66 adventure. She was planning on coming along with us, but had to pull out, and this was her kind-hearted way of being part of the trip. I wore it when we stopped at the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, which she had a particular fondness to see. One day, Janice!
