Parked Mom's car at a fire hydrant on a day when a fire drill was called, so of course I got a ticket. Very embarrassing, went back to biking to school. Best memories were as a girls' leader, lettered in 4 sports and gained a red S. Field hockey was just wonderful. Also, AP History with Szwaja and Maggie Jones and English with James Snavely. My 91 yr old dad and I still sing the Tom Lehrer songs from the album he shared with us.

Happy B D, Judy. Yes, Eng Lit at Shaker. My son-in-law, who was raised in Jodpur + I have a common frame of reference. Have u read River of the Gods? My AAUW book club did + I gave it to my 15yr old grandson. He called me to say he enjoyed it. OH those Victorian colonials! The white man's burden. Have things changed?

Loved reading your update. Your leadership skills + good humor still shine thru. Happy BD. I'm also in a music group that performs ensemble, Jacktown Ukes. I don't play a ukelele, but a guitar. Also , maybe u remember my dad was a cellist in Cleve Orchestra for 48 yrs, so I love the cello. Be well, love, Ces
