On the left- hand side of this photo are two small figures—Betty and Opal—our wonderful neighbors. When Cocoa was young, she loved for me to take her down to get the mail so she could look for Opal. Loving this person is an obsession that we are still working to control. She would sit down and just wait for her friend to appear. I don’t think I even knew that Betty and Opal were outside the day this photo was taken until I printed it later. Then I realized why Cocoa was being so still—she was “watching for Opal”.
