The Kindly Koala

When I was a teeny-bopper we lived in Friedburg, Germany. My father, an Army officer, was stationed there for three years. During that tour of duty, an Australian soldier visited with us for a time. When he departed for home, he gifted me with a stuffed Koala. It’s my first memory of a Koala. I still have that stuffed “bear”, although he’s spent the last dozen or so years in Hannah’s room. They’re such endearing little creatures. Enjoy!
