I have it on the authority of a child psychologist that the children
who have imaginary playmates when young are the brighter and more
innovative children? I doubt you'd disagree! I was told that we were
called Cousin Jack's because whenever there was a job opening, every
Cornishman always had a Cousin(Jack) who could fill it!! I like that
better than the Cussin' Jack someone else suggested.

My son had an imaginary friend, called Jenny, she had to go everywhere with
him. We used to
have car trips, and Jenny would have a place there in the car. I think from
memory she left
around about the age of 5.
It was great that he had this friend, he had such an imagination, they must
have had so many
