Fifty Seventh Post - L
My Omie had a life like, large, lion named Leo who was perched on the top ledge of her red velvet armchair. If we behaved ourselves at Omie's she would take Leo down from the top of the chair and allow us to play with him. He was fun to play with alone; even better to play with when one or two of the cousins were together. Oh the fun we had with Leo. He was such a gentle Lion. He was ever so tolerant of our less than gentle play.
A Leo look a like!
Leo was kingly; down right regal, and had quite the roar. He carried us on his strong back. We rode him back and forth, over and over again in Omie's living room. Leo had the most fabulous comforting feel (and smell). He brought us seemingly endless joy and left us with many dear memories.
My Omie died twenty years ago today.
I still miss Omie a lot!
Leo now resides with relatives on the Sunshine Coast.
