Military Button

The weather is great here today. I was outside picking up sticks in the yard.
I looked down and saw a military button!!!
We have lived in this house for 30 years.
I have raked the yard so many times and there it was.
Brought it inside and cleaned it up.  
It says "Chester Pennsylvania Military College"
That is where my father inlaw went to college.
I can't wait to give it to him but, he's in Tahiti right now, poor guy.HA!
I wonder if they were looking for it and if he still has his jacket.
So, I put it on one of my favorite bears that I bought at our Goodwill's
weekly silent auction
It was made by Lori Ann Baker Corelis.
It had the original tag that has his name "Roosevelt."

Here is a close up.
Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket!!
Have wonderful afternoon!
Until next time! Julie
