Girls on the trail, running and pulling!

Last February, I sent the usual Valentines to over 70 classmates to remind them to write something to put in the annual newsletter I put together for them. About 15 of them still live in our hometown, several married to classmates, and a good many of them are the ones who have traditionally done the lion’s share of the work in planning our reunions at five year intervals.

I was in my parents’ garage helping them do a little spring cleaning.
Dad is out of the hospital after a long stay recovering from a fall that broke his hip. He was almost back to his old self when his heart started acting up, setting him back significantly. He gets around with a walker, but not very far or fast.
