I just reclaimed my old beloved Richard Scarry's Best Counting Book Ever. Sandwiched between the 70 Seventy spread was a translucent Radio Shack bag with some funny contents: a stack of dried pansies and this drawing of Lowly the Worm—my favorite Richard Scarry character. Mister Scarry kept my imagination busy for a huge chunk of my childhood. Come to find out his wife had the same name as my mother—Patricia Murphy.
