3V0774.02 Keeping warm (3/6-8/80)

While the older children clustered around the stove in the morning,
Peggy picked up her ‘Bear Hug’ from the floor across the room and
brought it to the stove. Holding it up and close, she said, ‘Bear keep
warm.’

Two days later, before an open fire in our sitting room fireplace, Peggy
sat in a nearby (fire, sic) chair and spoke as I rearranged the burning
logs. ‘Wood on fire,’ I heard her say., Gretchen interpreted it differently
either as ‘Watch the fire’ or ‘Watch oo fire.’
