Growing up, mama would cut up daddy’s old shirts to make hankies: something to keep in our back pocket, ready to wipe engine grease from our hands, or the sweat from our eyes, and on Sundays, a clean one in case a pretty girl had the sniffles. I learned as a kid to never leave home without a hankie, my wallet, and my pocketknife and the habit stuck. Sometimes, if she had leftover fabrics from sewing projects, she’d use those to make hankies, too. I asked if she had any scraps in her sewing room on my last trip home and she sent me back to Laurel with these, just like the ones we grew up using, except now they’ve got my name on them. — Ben
