Out of retirement
(It was stored in a different place from my other platters.)
Phone call. "I have a 17" platter, that should be big enough, so don't bring one."
When Dad saw what I had, he said, "You know, I was around the last time that was used. In forty-one, forty-two. After that, the dinners were at our house." I was touched by this. (My dad wasn't much older than my nephew is now.)
So here it is, in use, after sixty years:
It's a jolly good platter for turkey, too, as it has juice wells, which most modern platters don't. It was obviously meant to serve Roast Something at Sunday and holiday dinners.
