Night before last I was at the Historical Society in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, speaking about the past---mostly my own past---and how it has affected my work. It was a real treat to be in that lovely, historic town, the home of Dickinson College (my grandfather's house, where I once lived while my father as overseas in WW II, now houses the Economics Department of the college). I have so many memories of being a child there---some of which I have included in the book "Autumn Street" which is fictionalized autobiography.


Some of the many people in the audience were people from my own past. One of them actually brought me this photograph of my first grade class...taken in May 1944, just after my seventh birthday.

There I am, the farthest-left girl in the middle row.  Wearing glasses!  I have no memory of wearing glasses in first grade.  I know I did, briefly, later---sixth grade, I thought.

But here is the thing that amuses and surprises me. Two girls to my left is Lois Beittel, who brought me the photograph.  And in the back, there is Lois McDonnell, my first grade teacher.

It seems amazing to have three Loises in one small space.

And it makes me chuckle to look at Mabel Hays, in the first row, far right, with her arms crossed across her chest.  Boy, did she NOT want to have her picture taken!

I just laughed as I read this post! Chonko-nabe immediately brought to mind the "hoosh" made of those "Bovril sledging rations" and lard that kept Ernest Shackleton and his men alive during some grim days on the adventure!

Lol. Great story. I can't believe you don't like eel. It's one of my favorite kinds of sushi. Unagi-don is also very good. Just as a note, it is pronounced "chanko"-nabe.

Unlike pants or t-shirts, you cannot actually deal with http://www.moncleroutletukofficial.co.uk/">moncler outlet as soon as you buy them, says chief executive officer Dani Reiss. "Due to the complexity of building and construction, tailoring a jacket belongs to customizing an automobile, so the obstacle is to offer a broad enough selection of styles as well as fits to work for the greatest variety of physique." Today, women stand for 55 per cent of Canada Goose's replica handbags uk international sales, Reiss states.Regardless of its lively hyacinth-coloured hooded jackets and also streamlined down vests, however, Reiss claims the brand won't being chasing after au courant style patterns like high-sheen fabrications or avant-garde silhouettes. He additionally continues to be louis vuitton replica handbags mum about rumours that Canada Goose might work together with a luxe Italian tag, a step that would present both brands http://www.moncleroutletukofficial.co.uk to a brand-new series of customers.

Vita Vea, Washington: A freakish athlete,NFL Jerseys Vea actually played as a 350-pound edge rusher at times two years ago due to the team's injuries at the position. He can stand up double-teams and attack ball carriers.NFL Cheap Sports Jerseys Being part of a rotation at the next level will help him stay fresh, maximizing his talents. Maurice Hurst, Michigan: A quick first step makes Hurst the most dangerous penetrator in this group.Adidas NHL Jersey He plays strong for his size (6-foot-1, 292 pounds), as well. He was diagnosed with a heart condition at the NFL Scouting Combine, Adidas NBA Swingman Jersey but was later cleared by doctors to participate in Michigan's pro day and was not asked to return for the combine medical recheck, which was a good sign. Da'Ron Payne, Alabama: Payne's disruptive play in the College Football Playoff gave him a boost heading into the draft process. Stitched NCAA Hockey Jersey He
demonstrated that quickness all season, though, and at the combine, too. CFL Jersey Teams seeking a nose tackle with quickness to challenge gaps on a consistent basis will look his
way early in the draft.Taven Bryan, Florida: Bryan was not the most productive player during his time at Florida,Flex Base Baseball Jersey especially in his first two years. However, his natural ability is evident, as is his motor. At 6-5, 291 pounds, Soccer Club Jersey Bryan might fit best as a five-technique. Harrison Phillips, Stanford: Phillips is a strong defender who's difficult to move.Women Jersey His agility and nose for the ball in traffic are exemplary; it's rare for a tackle to lead his team in tackles, as Phillips did last season with 103 stops, even if two-thirds of the tackles were assists.
