Jennifer Dowley’s Children

With apologies to Jennifer who sent me this photo weeks ago. I thought I had “published” this blog entry but had not! Jennifer writes:

“I’m happy to have my email address and street address made available. Am always ready to see visitors. I live with my 11 year old daughter, Marion in Millerton, NY…right on the border of CT near Salisbury and Sharon.” (see Classmate Locations)

Addison is 25 and autistic and Marion is 11.

Tonight I reconnected with Anne Curtis C. who is involved with a SafePet program here in Connecticut called Our Companions. The program places pets in fostercare in times of crisis (see “Looking After Those in Need” – December 30, 2008). Hopefully our home “passed muster” and Annie and I will be seeing each other often in the future.

I hope to persuade Annie to return to EWS for our next reunion in 2011….not so afar away.

Spring….D— It!

Spring….D— It!

OK, living in the Northeast this year has been a little challenging and we are all tired of waiting for the warm weather! It’s April 13th already!

So, thanks to Nancy Shepard Kovaleff, I am including some pictures that will do for now. They are lovely and I asked Nancy if she was a photographer. She replied, “No, I just like to carry my camera in my pocket.”

I couldn’t agree more. Digital makes that so easy these days! So, Everyone, carry your cameras with you and send us some fun spring photos.

Meanwhile, thanks, Nancy, for your Vermont photos of impending spring AND for the one of you (in warmer climes, I note!).
