So well told. This is most interesting and pulls you right into the search in the attic. It's also a good use of the topic. Very good piece. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I thought I remembered this story. I am sorry I didn't comment on it. I really liked it. Keep writing! Blessings, Ruth Brown

It is obvious that many years of "recounting events and storytelling" (that is one word BTW) at your family gatherings have served you well - this is good writing! I'm not a lover of cats, but I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Just a couple of tiny suggestions... "that we wore on her" would be more concise as: "that she wore"; "wide eyed" is hyphenated (wide-eyed); "coinages"? Why not just say, "coins"? I loved the description of the coronation ceremony - so cute. You have a natural flowing style that is so enjoyable to read. I have a feeling you won't be in the beginner's level for long.
