As a child, I had a fascination with my parents' wedding picture. I was especially attracted to my mother's dress. It was in the attic in a cedar chest. One day, around age 7 I crept up to the attic and lovingly pulled out the dress. No sooner had I gotten it up my waist than I heard my mother exclaim, ”What do you think you're doing”! I blushed in shame as the dress was returned to the chest.
During Covid, when there was much time for reflection I remembered this moment. I thought it would be fun to recreate this fantasy. I found the dress still existed but needed to be located. It was found, and the fantasy was fulfilled after 63 years.
