Poem response.

My Friends and Neighbors request for the words to a poem I knew as a child was published in the November issue, and so far I have received 125 responses. In one week, I received most of the replies, and "The Gingham Dog and Calico Cat" is now deep in my brain again.

A lot of people thought I was a man. That's happened for the last 67 years. I am a grandmother, and I was making stuffed toys for my grandchildren when I came to the dog and cat patterns. I immediately thought of the long-ago poem but couldn't remember all of it. Our home burned four years ago, and I lost my books.

My granddaughter kept asking about the poem, because I made the dog out of gingham and the cat calico, and she wanted the poem.

So thanks to the wonderful GRIT readers, we are happy.
